Shore Experiences by Seabourn: Ushuaia – King Crabs, Fishing and Gourmet Lunch Experience
During this new shore excursion in Ushuaia, Argentina your clients will experience an unforgettable day in a picturesque village on the Beagle Channel. They will live like a local – sailing, catching their own crab, and cooking it at a family house. All the while, learning the culinary secrets of Patagonia's wonderful, casual foodie style.
They will travel by van along National Route 3, turning onto a gravel road through dense native forest. Guests will see turbales – a rare ecosystem containing dead organic material derived from plants that have adapted to certain conditions of this region. Another nine-mile gravel road brings them to the lovely fishing village of Puerto Almanza – the southernmost fishing port in Argentina, located on the coast of the Beagle Channel. Almost everyone in the village is dedicated to specialized fishing, crabbing, shellfish-harvesting and other seafood-related endeavors.
Guests will meet two local fishermen who will show them around, sharing the history of this remote place and the way they live, then step aboard their boat and row offshore to find a good spot to cast the nets. Wait a few minutes, observing the scenery and the snowcapped peaks in the distance. Suddenly they'll feel pressure on the net. Pull together to raise it and check out the bounty of seafood that is now making its way to their lunch table.
After fishing, they will return to their house and share some laughs as the meal planning begins. The fishermen will teach your clients how to prepare a crab in traditional Tierra del Fuego style and will gather herbs and spices directly from the garden to cook one the most memorable meals they'll ever eat.
This unforgettable shore experience is available on seven Seabourn Quest voyages in 2019 and 2020.
On the first sailing of the 2019-2020 Antarctica Season, Groundbreaking Antarctic Explorer Colin O'Brady will join the Seabourn Conversations program. O'Brady became the first person ever to traverse Antarctica from coast-to-coast solo, unaided by kites or resupplies, in December. Read the full article here.
