Patagonia Cruises in Chile
Patagonia cruises go in and out of the fiords along the west coast of Chile or down to Ushuaia in Argentina. We offer a number of different options, depending on your budget and how active you want to be. We can easily combine these with land components to make a complete itinerary for Chile or Argentina or a combination of both.
- Australis Expedition Cruises - Explore the southernmost and wildest region of the world. Sail comfortably through the Strait of Magellan and the Beagle Channel, along glaciers, bays and fjords, discovered and explored in the 16th century. This is a more "hands on" experience than you get with the larger cruise ships because you get to places that they can't get to and you make more shore excursions - so you get to see more up close. These travel between Punta Arenas, Chile and Ushuaia, Argentina. They are more upscale and offer the most active excursions.
- Skorpios II - The route of the M/V Skorpios II, with a capacity of up to 130 passengers, sails every Saturday, returning on Thurdays, from September to May from Puerto Montt, Chile. We will sail 800 miles through gulfs, channels and the Llanquihue, Chiloe, Chonos and Aysen archipelagos, visiting the village of Puerto Aguirre and the mythical city of Castro in Chiloe, until arriving to the spectacular and millenary San Rafael Glacier as well as the Quitralco Fjord.
- Skorpios III - sails from Puerto Natales twice a week between September and April of each year; the tour lasts from Friday to Monday and Tuesday to Friday. The trip to Southern Ice Field takes three nights, with 380 miles of navigation, visiting the most important glaciers in the region: Amalia, El Brujo, the Calvo Fjord glaciers, Bernal and Herman. A total of some 15 glaciers to be viewed and observed; we will also be able to trek their base and moraines and sail through multicoloured icebergs. During the cruise we will be able to view the varied flora and fauna of Patagonia, which remains virgin and wild.
