Isla Martillo Transportation: 2 reviews and 3 photos
Estancia Haberton is a great daytrip by ship from Ushuaia and Isla Martillo is a place, that you will visit on the way to Haberton. The ships are not leaving daily, but 2-3 times a week and mostly 2 different shipping-companies will start at 09.30am in Ushuaia. You will pass by the lighttower at the end of the world from quite some distance and you will stop at Isla Martillo ,an island with penguins : the catameran is getting close to the beach there, BUT you have no chance to get out, after 10 minutes the ship is leaving again there for Haberton, where you will get a guided tour and will have some extra time to walk on your own or go to the cafe / restaurant of Estancia Haberton.
Before you get to Haberton, you are able to order a 3-course-menu for about 30 ARG $ (=7,50 Euros) onboard.
Calculate some extra 30 minutes to get your ticket and to embark after a time-consuming check-point, when entering the port-area.They will insist of all your handbags, camerabags etc. scanned like at the airport and several ships are leaving all at the same time !
