As we set sail through the Beagle Channel, we’ll be surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, rugged coastlines, and the pristine waters of this iconic maritime passageway. Isla Lobos, named after its resident sea lions (lobos marinos), offers a captivating glimpse into the rich biodiversity of the region.

During our journey, we’ll have the opportunity to observe the majestic sea lions lounging on the rocky shores and playing in the azure waters. These charismatic creatures, with their playful antics and commanding presence, provide an unforgettable wildlife encounter.

In addition to the sea lions, Isla Lobos is also home to a diverse array of bird species, including cormorants, gulls, and petrels. As we explore the island, we’ll be treated to the sight and sounds of these avian inhabitants, adding to the immersive experience of our Beagle Channel navigation.
