This is a really great way to see the fantastic natural Patagonian channels, fiords, waterfalls, glaciers and inlets as well as the abundant variety of marine fauna and native flora and fauna on the mainland. Sailing through the some of the same channels that Charles Darwin and other early explorers passed through, you will be able to enjoy the warm comforts on board an “intimate-style” ship and also be able to get up close to glacial faces and icebergs as well as enjoy informed lectures about what you will see. Among the sights will be a number of glaciers including the massive Pio X1 Glacier, which is the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, covering an area of 1,243km (larger than Santiago de Chile) with a 6km-wide face measuring 75m in height and stretching back 64km! You will also get an opportunity to see Dolphins, Lilly Ducks, Cormorants, Black-Necked Swans and other beautiful and amazing marine life.
