Advice on Choosing the Right Ship

The smaller boats will be better suited to navigating into those more remote areas, while the larger cruise ships will have small exploration boats for you to get off and explore these widely inaccessible locations.

Each of these vessels offers a unique and personalised experience of Patagonia, we hope we can find the right ship for you.
