Small, comfortable and built to the highest safety specifications, these boats cruise between Punta Arenas in Chile and Ushuaia in Argentina.

This fascinating journey through some of the world’s most remote and dramatic terrain takes you to some legendary places synonymous with early Patagonian explorers such as the mythical Strait of Magellan, Cape Horn and the Beagle Channel.

As you cruise through the myriad of channels, fjords and bays you will see not only a world of vast glaciers, snow-capped mountains and stunning virgin forest, but a region full of wildlife such as penguins, elephant seals and sea lions.

These delightful 4 night cruises operate between October and April and cruise from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia and vice versa. Daily land excursions are accompanied by resident naturalist guides who bring this extraordinary world to life.
