Photographer's Note

The Beagle Channel took its name from the English ship Beagle who's main claim to fame was the fact that a young naturalist named Charles Darwin was among the crew during the ship's voyages 'round the Horn in the 1830's on his way to the Galapagos and fame. The view probably hasn't changed much in the past 170 years. The snowcapped Andes slide into the blue waters of the channel. Dotted throughout the water are small rock islands that have become home to seals and cormorants.

Several times a day, cruises leave Ushuaia for a tour around the Channel and out to two of the small rocky islands to view the local fauna. Appropriately enough, they are called Seal Island and Bird Island.
