Skorpios III – Kaweskar Explorers Route

Cruise Highlights Amalia Glacier During the journey along Peel inlet, you reach Amalia Glacier, located in the middle of the Southern Ice Field. The sight of the glacier’s descent from the Andes is particularly impressive. The glacier’s front is about 1km/0.6mi wide and up to 50m/164ft in height. Later, you also travel through Calvo Inlet, where you will see another six glaciers and floating icebergs in many shapes and colours. Motorboats especially suited to the purpose will carry you close to the icebergs, and you will also have the opportunity to toast your journey with a glass of whiskey containing ice cubes thousands of years old.

Flora and Fauna The region’s natural environment is characterized by its wide variety: the native animals and plants will delight every nature-lover. Many bird species and their nesting places on the steep cliffs of islands can be observed during your cruise. You will also frequently be accompanied by dolphins and tuna, which swim alongside the vessel.
