We loved the tour! The boat very modern, clean and comfortable, on board there are photographers service that allowed us to keep wonderful memories! It is a full day to enjoy. Estancia Haberton is lovely, to breathe fresh air and enjoy a guided tour of the ranch's history. Highly recommended this tour

The boat trip through the island of birds, sea lions and penguins was nice, but the boat was pretty full and I saw some people with no place to sit. In the resort, lunch is reasonable (not included), the walk in the bone museum is excellent as the historic visit by the resort and the guide leave something to be desired.

Excess of passengers standing outside in the open without hanging, and not listening to safety measures and in case of accident do not reach life jackets
