Going to Chile ??? Heading for Torres del Paine or coming from there ? You'll probably need to go aboard the Navimag ships. See what it looks like !

Leave your thoughts ! It's a trip that divides people

Best regards

Thanks for sharing that, great photos.

And I love the little film at the end. My god, I had forgotten how shitty I felt for many years, when crossing the Golfo de Penas. Which I did about 50 times, when working on a vessel that sailed between Puerto Montt and Ushuaia, visiting Cabo de Hornos and - most important - Antarctica in between.

We often saw the Navimag vessels of course, and well, its not heaven, but nearly the only means of transportation in the fjords. I was happy to be on my lovely small cruise vessel though, with my single-occupied double cabin.

How are they doing in Puerto Eden nowadays???

We were the first and probably only cruise ship (2 ships) coming there on a weekly base, for us they built up all the little stands for selling their handicrafts, and started doing dances in the school, when we came. We donated computers, books and other stuff to them in exchange for welcoming us always, while we were landing there for some hours with our 250 passengers, strolling up and down the boardwalk.
It was a sad surprise for them to hear that our company would change their itinerary, after 4 seasons (now departing from Punta Arenas, and the other one directly from Ushuaia), and I would love to once go back there again. Has to be with Navimag then... (or Skorpios).
