Other important information
Why a departure from puerto williams instead of Ushuaia? This saves you from doing the formalities for the boat and these passengers who save you two days on your program effect leaving from Ushuaia involves making the exit from Argentina (immigration, naval prefecture, customs) and four sailing hours to get to puerto Williams and start again entry formalities in Chile (immigration, naval armada, Customs and Phytosanitary) and similar to returning to Ushuaia. In addition, the port of Williams prevents us from going to sea at above 35 established nodes, which could compromise your air tickets for your return How to reach us puerto williams?
