The spider crab is a benthic crustacean of temperate-cold waters. In our country they are concentrated in the sub-Antarctic region, at depths ranging between 30 and 120 meters.

It is also worth mentioning that it is the largest crustacean in the world, weighing up to 5kg, and its 10-legged pinchers can measure up to 1.5 meters.

To begin the crab experience in Ushuaia, we start by heading to the National Route 3 of Ushuaia. UshuaiaWe take a gravel road through a dense native forest. When we reach the coast, we start walking through the forest until we reach a lively and copious waterfall. Then, back in the vehicle, we will drive to Puerto Almanza, the southernmost fishing port in Argentina. Puerto Almanza is a small fishing village located on the east coast of the Beagle Channel, 75 km from the city of Ushuaia.

From there, we take another gravel road for about 15km until we reach a small and lovely fishing village where we are welcomed by a local family and invited to board a boat, with which we head to a suitable place to begin the crab catching experience. We will be able to learn about this crustacean species from the locals, how they live, how we can catch them and the way they are cooked and then enjoy their exquisite and incomparable taste.

By tasting this salmon-colored culinary delicacy, we can get to know its peculiar, captivating and unique flavor. From this singular crustacean of the crab order, the meat found in the legs and shell is consumed. Its subtle and energetic flavor makes it suitable for a multiplicity of dishes and combinations.

The crab experience in Ushuaia is undoubtedly a culinary experience worth living.
