Cruceros Australis starts new season
The company will offer a historic capacity for travelers from all over the world to reach unreachable places in Tierra del Fuego
This season 2018-2019 Australis returns to navigate with two boats operating simultaneously. With this, the Company specialized in carrying out expedition cruises through the remote channels of Chilean Patagonia Argentina, will offer a historic capacity for travelers from all over the world to reach unreachable places in Tierra del Fuego.
For the season that is soon to begin, the Company estimates that it will transfer more than 13,000 passengers. This implies an increase of more than 30% in its capacity in relation to last season, period in which its new ship, Ventus Australis, was integrated into the operation in the middle of the cycle, in January 2018. This year, instead, their two boats will begin sailing between September and October with only weeks of difference and very good expectations of another great season. "The amount of reserves received to date is in line with what we had projected. Our goal to continue growing aims to continue deepening our markets, both in the nationality of our guests and in the age of the passengers who choose us. Patagonia is gaining more and more recognition worldwide and our cruises are an excellent alternative for young travelers who want to travel and get into it, as well as for more remote markets that are just becoming familiar with the destination, "says Pedro del Río, manager general of Cruceros Australis.
The routes of this season.
With almost 30 years dedicated exclusively to expedition trips through Patagonia, the Company has been refining its routes more and more based on the interests they have observed in their passengers. Thus, for this season, One Way tours of 4 nights were defined between the cities of Ushuaia and Punta Arenas (in both directions), in addition to a "Round Trip" route of 8 nights, with beginning and end in Punta Arenas or in Ushuaia . In these tours, the cruises go through the fjords of Tierra del Fuego and make different excursions in zodiac boats that allow passengers to explore in depth the sub-Antarctic forests, walk along Patagonian beaches and bays, approaching imposing glaciers and learn about close the fauna that inhabits these landscapes. All routes consider sailing to the mythical Cape Horn, where, if time permits, passengers can also disembark to walk the southernmost point of the Earth before Antarctica, a feat that only a few can boast of having vivid.
