Laguna San Rafael by Catamaran

Join us for a journey to one of the most spectacular sceneries in Southern Chile. Following a beautiful cruising through the Chilean fjords, the ship will anchor at Paso Quesahuen, about sixty minutes cruising time from Laguna San Rafael.

Cruising into the Laguna is via a narrow opening and reveals fantastic views of floating pieces of ice and the San Valentin Glacier. The spectacular glacier is one of a group of four that flow in all directions from San Valentin Mountain. This glacier also has the distinction of being the world’s nearest one to the Equator. As a dramatic backdrop the San Valentin Mountain rises from this massive ice field which is part of the Laguna San Rafael National Park.

Relax in the warm and cozy interior, or spend time in the clear and invigorating air out on deck. You will want to bring your camera, binoculars and wear warm clothing. The catamaran will spend about 45 minutes in the Laguna San Rafael, part of which will be at anchor in front of the glacier. Be out on deck to watch for huge junks of ice calving with horrendous noise off the glacier.

As the vessel cruises slowly out of Laguna San Rafael, take one last look at the spectacular setting and marvel at this unique experience.
