Skorpios III

Patagonia Cruise - 4 Day Ice Field Cruise (Kaweskar Route)

Constructed in 1995, and refurbished in 2007, the Skorpios III is a 90 passenger expedition vessel, operating in the southern ice field of Chile's Patagonia region. The ship features the most advanced telecommunication technology and satellite navigation, ensuring a safe journey as you visit the most renowned glaciers of the area and cruise through narrow channels and towering fjords. On board, the well-appointed cabins (which are slightly larger than those on sister ship, Skorpios II), modern en suite bathrooms throughout, and spacious public areas provide a warm and relaxing ambiance, while an experienced crew attends to your every need.
