Why we like this ship
Forrest is a small boat offering access to remote wildlife locations within the Chilean Fjords. Not only will you see incredible scenery, you can also get up close to humpback whales on some of the voyages, as well as glaciers and other wildlife. One of their trips also offers the opportunity to kayak with humpbacks - an opportunity not to be missed! The ship has space for only 20 guests so has a friendly and cosy atmosphere, and a great communal area, as well as excellent guides and staff.
If you're keen to see humpback whales, and don't have much time, there is a fantastic trip aboard the Forrest that travels deep into the fjords through the night so that you waste no time getting to the amazing humpback feeding area, where you spend a full day before sailing back again overnight.
Voyages on the Forrest
One of the things I love most about the Forrest is it the atmosphere on board - it feels warm and cosy with comfortable bunk rooms and living space, great views, lots of maps and books to enjoy, and a fun team of expedition crew on board.

Cabins and Deck Plan
The M/N Forrest has been transformed from a cargo ship from the Falkland Islands. The crew aim to offer a personalised service, without seeking to be particularly sophisticated, it is of a quality that allows guests to feel right at home in a cosy, friendly environment.
The vessel accommodates for 20 passengers with four quad cabins and two double cabins. All can be booked as private or shared. The cabin deck has four bathrooms and the main deck has two bathrooms.
