Scenic Cruising Gulf of Corcovado - Gulf of Corcovado is a large body of water separating the Chiloé Island from the mainland of Chile.  Geologically, it is a foreland basin that has been carved out by Quaternary glaciers.  Most of the islands of Chiloé Archipelago are located in the gulf.  The area is next to the Chiloé National Park, and a large population of blue whales is found there, and it is under threat from salmon farming.

Day 04:  January 17, 2019
Chilean Fjords - The southernmost glaciated inlets in the world, cradled in the remote southern tip of Patagonia, the Chilean Fjords of Tierra del Fuego are a spectacular feast for the senses and a true splendor of nature.  Stretching for more than 1,600km and encompassing an area brimming with not only fjords but also volcanoes, waterfalls and imposing glaciers, this stretch of harsh yet mesmerizing coastline is an amazing destination for anyone who wants to get off the beaten travel path in South America.

Day 05:  January 18, 2019
Scenic cruising El Brujo Glacier - Glaciar El Brujo is the impressive and magnificent glacier located at the end of Fiordo Asia. Glaciar El Brujo is an enormous ice wall that fascinates the traveler.
Scenic Cruising Canal Sarmiento - One of the main channels in Patagonia, the Sarmiento Channel runs in a north-south direction, starting at the Guía Narrows and finishing at the southern edge of Victoria Pass, where it joins the Smyth Channel. The Kawesqar people have inhabited this region for more than 6,000 years, but the channel was named for a more recent arrival: the Spanish explorer Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, who first navigated it between 1579 and 1580. The Chilean mainland lies to the east, and the islands of Esperanza, Vancouver and Piazzi flank the channel to the west. As elsewhere in the Chilean fjord region, the ragged coastline is cut with inlets set among snow-covered mountain ranges. In many places, massive glaciers run down to the sea. All kinds of marine animals, including Magellanic penguins, southern elephant seals, dolphins and orcas, can be seen along these shores.

Ushuaia, Argentina - The southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia is the capital of Argentine Tierra del Fuego and an important naval base boasting a strategic as well as a picturesque location on the shores of Ushuaia Bay and the Beagle Channel. This rustic coastal town is set among waterfalls, glaciers, snow-clad mountains and beech forests, and the nutrient-rich local waters abound with marine life. Though the houses here are painted warm, pastel colors, the weather is chilly year-round and winter sports such as downhill and cross-country skiing and skating are popular. Ushuaia's principal industries are raising sheep, logging, fishing and trapping. It became a boomtown with 30,000 residents in the late 1980's when the government sought to increase Argentina's presence near Antarctica by giving tax breaks to citizens who settled here.

Day 17:  January 30, 2019
Arrives 07:00 AM - Departs 04:00 PM
Stanley / Falkland Islands / Islas Malvinas - An archipelago of over 700 islands spread over 4,700 square miles lies about 300 miles east of the coast of Argentina. Its political affiliation is with the United Kingdom, and it is named the Falkland Islands, although this is disputed by Argentina, which calls the island group Islas Malvinas. The islands were the focus of a short, violent military confrontation between the two nations in 1982 which resulted in many lives lost. Most visitors come to the islands attracted by the severe beauty of the landscape and the unusual wildlife to be seen there, especially colonies of penguins. Port Stanley, the capital, is a plucky outpost supporting the hardy islanders who farm and fish and, lately, newcomers set on exploiting the recently discovered oil reserves offshore.

Punta del Este, Uruguay - Referred to as the "Riviera of South America," Punta del Este is first and foremost a world class beach resort. Located at the tip of a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic, it is bordered on both sides by more than 25 miles of beaches with pounding, surf on the ocean side, and tranquil waters on the other. Fine white sand beaches connect azure waters to pine forests, where eucalyptus and mimosa trees lend their scent to the evening air.

Day 21:  February 03, 2019
Arrives 07:00 AM - Disembark
Buenos Aires, Argentina - Founded in 1536, Buenos Aires was administered by a Spanish viceroy for nearly three centuries before winning its independence in 1816. A sleepy port town for most of that time, it wasn't until the turn of the 20th century that the city finally emerged as an important shipping center. Today, Argentina's democratically elected government has made it South America's safest (and most expensive) country. This cosmopolitan city is characterized by broad boulevards with huge shade trees, beautiful residential districts, plazas containing monuments and fountains, interspersed with 20th-century high-rise buildings. It is a truly great walking city.
