Cruise Departs Puerto Natales

After breakfast you are invited on a tour to Torres del Paine National Park and Milodon Cave, led by an English-speaking guide. Torres del Paine is famed for its beautiful scenery, with lakes, waterfalls, lagoons, glaciers and mountains, while Milodon Cave is a historical site believed to have been inhabited by primitive man. The tour includes lunch at Rio Serrano Hotel. You arrive back in Puerto Natales to board Skorpios III in readiness for departure, scheduled between 17:30 and 18:00.

Amalia And El Brujo Glaciers And Calvo Fjord

Enjoy breakfast as Skorpios III reaches her first destination, Amalia Glacier. You can get excellent views from the lounges or open deck before stepping ashore on a nearby beach to walk to a viewpoint from which you can see and take photos of the glacier. Return to the ship for lunch and a rest by which time you've reached El Brujo Glacier. If weather permits you can disembark for photos and viewing. Soon Skorpios III is en-route to Calvo Fjord, arriving in the late afternoon. Here you are transferred to Captain Constantino, an ice breaking vessel, designed to navigate through ice fields, enjoying views of glaciers and icebergs. You return to the ship to freshen up before dinner.
