Skorpios III: Kaweskar Explorer

The Skorpios III sets sail early every Saturday from the city of Puerto Natales, on a 5-day cruise navigating through the canals and fjords that surround the Southern Ice Field in the Chilean Patagonia, considered the third largest fresh water reserve on the planet, and the cradle of the largest and most spectacular glaciers in the southern hemisphere. Discover the Pio XI Glacier, the largest glacier in the southern hemishpere, a real giant at 6 kilometers (3.7 mi) wide and towers above, standing some 75 meters (250 ft) tall, with length of 64 kilometers (40 mi). Get to see the Amalia and Estero Calvo Glaciers, a large sihouette that descends down from the Andes mountain range, a spectacular scene especially with the size and colors in your view. This glacier has a width of approximately 1 kilometer (.62 mi), and a height of 50 meters (165ft) and because of the size and pressure of the glacier, the ice has a crystal appearance because of a lack oxygen within the actual mass of ice.
