Calafate Vacation Packages
Nautical Safari is one of the best optional excursions when you visit the Perito Moreno glacier in a Calafate vacation.
There are two possibilities of Safaris in the Perito Moreno Glacier: Once is to take the Lake Rico and skirting the south wall of the Perito Moreno which is inaccessible to the eye from the catwalks. Another possibility is to sail the Canal of the Icebergs, approaching the front of the glacier Perito Moreno.
These sailings can observe, with a totally different perspective, the impressive walls of the glacier and the continuous detachment of ice blocks, which then turned into icebergs, passing very close to the boat, and stained with blue reflections of ancient canals and lakes. From my point of view this is one of the most exciting part of our calafate vacation package.
The boat, with capacity for 70 passengers, approximately, is located at a safe distance from the wall of the glacier to cross it in its entirety.
Boarding takes place in the Port bajo de las sombras (under the shadows), located 6 km. from the viewpoint of the glacier, for the first option, and from the Port Perito Moreno, which is walking distance from the runway (coastal trekking) or by bus in 10 minutes.
There are departures every hour between 11 AM and 4 PM.
Duration: 1 hour.
Recommendations for the Nautical Safari:
- This activity is recommended for all passengers.
- Can be combined with an excursion to the glacier, but not with the Minitrekking, since it is included with that excursion.
- It is excellent for photographs and filming.
