Full description
Cape Froward, one of the most southern points on the planet, is home to many glaciers, humpback whales, Sei whales, Piebald dolphins, Commerson’s dolphins, and the Magellan Penguin. All of these creatures help form part of the natural wonder of the Austral region of the Strait of Magellan and Tierra del Fuego Island. As you tour one of the most remote and pristine places on the planet, this full-day journey will help you grasp the sheer magnitude of nature at its fullest. Starting early in the morning, you will go by bus to your boarding place, located 50 kilometers south of Punta Arenas. It will be from this area that you will sail for about 10 hours. This is sure to be an incredible adventure in which you will witness a unique landscape surrounded by mountains, glaciers, Lenga, and Coihue forests. In addition, marine fauna will amaze you by its proximity and sheer abundance. You will encounter sea lions, petrels, cormorants, and austral dolphins, among others.

Nice program but beware, what is announced in the description is not guaranteed. Wildlife must indeed be there ... if you are lucky all the better, otherwise the price remains high.

It was totally amazing !! The sunrise, the many whales, penguins, dolphins and other wildlife, the glacier and the entire trip at all. The guides were incredibly passionate biologists who could tell a lot. It was a magical day!
