Description

This view of Bahia Ushuaia features the St. Christopher, a tugboat that came to rest in this spot in 1953.

The St. Christopher was brought south to raise the remains of the Monte Cervantes, a German ship that floundered on the rocks in the Beagle Channel in 1930. Work crews managed to free the Monte Cervantes from the rocks, but the four tugs that were recruited to the task of hauling the ship back to Ushuaia were not successful. The Monte Cervantes sank to the bottom of the Beagle Channel where it remained undisturbed for decades.

Recently rediscovered, the Monte Cervantes is a destination for scuba divers. Anyone walking along the harbor west of the Port of Ushuaia can see the St. Christopher with the grass growing on its decks.
