Cruises from Puerto Williams
Puerto Williams is a Chilean port and naval base located on Isla Navarino facing the Beagle Channel. It lies 46 km E of Ushuaia on the opposite N side of the Chanel. With a population of a little over 2,000, including both naval personnel and civilians, Puerto Williams claims to be the southernmost city in the world (based on definition of ‘city’; its population is 2900). During the last two decades tourism and support of scientific research have contributed to an increase in economic activity.
Its scientific activity relates to Antarctica and the islands south of Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego.
