The itinerary includes:
Cape Horn, where the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean touch. There stands the Albatross monument, homage to the hundreds of marines that perished in those risky waters.
Navigation through Pia and Garibaldi glaciers (you’ll come as close as possible to these beautiful masses of ice), channels and fjords.
Magdalena Island, a solitary point in the middle of the Strait of Magellan, and very close to Punta Arenas, Magdalena Island is a natural reserve of cormorants, sea-lions, and Magellan penguins. You can walk between 120 thousand penguins that come every year to nest in the island.
Look at this video that shows the Magellan penguins in Patagonia making their nests.
During these cruises, a variety of bonds are formed between passengers, who come from all over the world. There must be something special in the experience that unites people with such different backgrounds and languages.
