Deluxe Class Boat
Step on to the Stella Australis and begin your expedition into the extraordinary. This small ship adventure cruise gets up close and personal to the breathtaking scenery of Patagonia, exploring where the big ships cannot go. As you cruise the coast, Patagonia unfolds before you. Powerful zodiacs transfer you into the heart of the rugged landscape, to the base of glaciers, and into the heart of ancient forests.
With spacious cabins, all of which overlook the exterior, the Stella Australis has been carefully decorated, offering maximum interior comfort and spectacular views from virtually all parts of the ship. This deluxe vessel is specially designed to navigate the narrow fjords and shallow bays in this part of the world with an extremely shallow draught of just 3.4 meters (11.2 feet). Service on board is all-inclusive, with first-class gastronomy, an open bar, and an expedition program led by expert guides, trained in glaciology and Natural History of the Magellan Region and the Chilean Arctic.
