This day cruise starting from the pier at Puerto Natales offers a great opportunity to visit Bernardo O'Higgins National Park and see the surrounding wildlife and glaciers. The journey starts as we sail through the Ultima Esperanza Fjord or "Channel of Last Hope." You can expect good wildlife viewing and it's common to spot sea lions, Andean condors, elephant seals, and cormorant colonies right from the boat. The ship will come close to Balmaceda Mountain and you will be afforded excellent views of the Balmaceda Glacier and may have a chance to see the icebergs crashing from the glacier. Continuing we will stop near the Serrano Glacier where you will enjoy a short hike around the lagoon. We will take lunch at the local Estancia before returning to Puerto Natales.

Also you will get to hike to Serrano Glacier Viewpoint and take in the view. Back on board, we sail towards Estancia Perales where a traditional Patagonia bbq will be served, once we are done with lunch we set sail back to Puerto Natales.
