Other important information
Why a departure from puerto williams instead of Ushuaïa? This saves you from doing the formalities for the boat and these passengers who save you two days on your program Indeed the fact of leaving Ushuaïa implies to make the exit of Argentina (immigration, naval prefecture, customs) then four hours of sailing to get to puerto Williams and start again Chile entry formalities (immigration, naval armada, customs and phytosanitary) and the same on the return to Ushuaïa. Moreover the port of williams prevents us from going to sea at above 35 established knots, which could compromise your plane tickets for your return How to reach us in puerto williams?
