Sailing to Wulaia Bay it is very appealing not only because of its wonderful landscapes but also because represents one of the most important historical moments of modern science: Young Darwin meets with the local communities, the “cultural end of human evolution” according to his own words. Wulaia is of extraordinary beauty, considered the historical capital city of Tierra del Fuego. It is the place where Commander Fitz-Roy and Young naturalist Charles Darwin returned with the 3 indigenous knowned as Jemmy Button, Fuegia Basket and York Minster, after an “educative trip” to England. It is the same place where many years after, Button and his people massacred a large number of English missioners. By the end of XIX century, Peace returned to Wulaia with the settlement of estancias (cattle ranch), and a radio station where you can witness its remains. We will have the possibility to enjoy a little view of the Beagle Channel and Ushuaia, the picturesque and narrow Murray channel which divide Hoste Island and Navarino as well as Button Island coastal beaches. We will sail the same trail done 200 years before. If we are lucky enough we will have the chance to see a wide number of pelagic birds, seal colonies, dolphins and penguins.
