Other important information
Why a departure from puerto williams instead of Ushuaia?
This saves you from having to go through the formalities for the boat and those passengers who save you two days on your program.
Indeed, leaving Ushuaia implies leaving Argentina (immigration, naval prefecture, customs) then four hours of navigation to arrive in Puerto Williams and start the formalities for entering Chile again (immigration, naval armada, customs). and phytosanitary) and similar to the return to Ushuaia.
In addition, the port of williams prevents us from going to sea above 35 established knots, which could compromise your plane tickets for your return.
