    Cabo Froward
    Stop: 10 hours - Admission included
    Cape Froward, the most southern point of our continental world, glaciers, humpback whales, Sei whales, Piebald dolphins, Commerson’s dolphins and the Magellan Penguin are part of the natural wonders of the Austral region of the Strait of Magellan and Tierra del Fuego Island. One of the most remote and pristine places of the planet, this full-day journey will make us feel the wildness of nature at its full. An incredible adventure where we will be witness of a unique landscape surrounded by mountains, glaciers, Lenga and Coihue forests. In addition, marine fauna will amaze us by its proximity and abundance: sea lions, petrels, cormorants, austral dolphins, among others, will make us feel and truly experience nature. Navigate the famous sea route of the Strait of Magellan and watch a beautiful sunrise over Tierra del Fuego and Fuerte Bulnes, the site of the first settlement of Punta Arenas. Cross Cape Froward at the end point of the American continent and admire the beautiful landscapes at the bottom of the world. See the stunning glaciers of the Darwin mountain range, and look for humpback whales and other wildlife as you enter Francisco Coloane Marine Park. Encounter Magellanic penguins, sea elephants, sea lions, and austral dolphins in their natural habitat, and look to the sky to spot cormorants and the majestic albatross. Marvel at the great diversity of flora and fauna, and then refuel with lunch. Cruise back to Punta Arenas and get incomparable views before the end of this experience. Our itinerary considers: Departure from Punta Carrera or Punta Santa Ana, which is a promontory in which the historical site Bulnes Fort is located; San Isidro Lighthouse, a stop to leave passengers at Froward Base Camp, Cape Froward, Rupert Island, Paso Ingles, Paso Shag, Seno Helado and return to Punta Carrera.

Muy buena excursión!
Viaje del día completo. Parte temprano en la mañana, a las 4 o 5 AM... aún no amanece. Viaje a 40-50 kms dirección hacia El Fuerte Bulnes, embarcas y empieza el viaje. Paseo por el estrecho e islas, con charlas interesantes por parte de Nerea, la guía. Clima cambiante, llueve de un momento a otro, con granizos, luego sale el sol y vuelve a llover de forma intermitente. Se logran avistar varias ballenas jorobadas, si tienes suerte, saltarán para mostrarse en esplendor. Se ven pingüinos, albatros, cormoranes, lobos marinos, entre otros. Paseos al glaciar, precioso. Toda la tripulación muy amigable y cercana, se nota que hacen las cosas con gusto. Muy recomendable!

Quand le rêve devient réalité
Jan. 2020
Depuis des années, je rêvais de voir des baleines! Et, cette expédition « full day » commandée par internet
à l’agence Comapa: de Punta Arenas fut un rêve devenu réalité!
Une journée d’emotions fortes! Nous avons vu des queues de baleines dans un premier temps! Puis dans cet univers loin du tourisme de masse, sans jamais croiser un bateau, à l’autre bout du monde..., au milieu d’ilots où la mer devient huile, 2 baleines, viennent nous accueillir! C’était
inimaginable! Elles sont arrivées tout prêt du catamaran en montrant leur dos, puis vont tourner, passer dessous, et tout d’un coup sortir leurs têtes, pour nous saluer, à 2 mètres!
Elles vont se montrer des tas de fois! Je leur parlais pour les remercier de cet accueil et nous regardaient! Elles n’avaient qu’à donner un coup de queue pour nous déstabiliser! Elles sont restées longtemps, puis ensemble, en parallèle, sont réparties dans leur univers! Un spectacle époustouflant!
Une leçon d’humilité, d,hospitalité, de bienveillance,de force... une grande leçon pour nous humains!
Merci à cette agence, de proposer cette expédition d’un jour, avec un bateau très confortable, neuf, un super équipage! Je passe aussi, sur de magnifiques condors, lions de mer,manchots, dans cet univers du bout du monde où le temps était au RDV

Une journée inoubliable !
29/12/19 Une journée inoubliable sur un magnifique catamaran flambant neuf parcourir le détroit de Magellan, voir baleines, dauphins, pingouins, lion de mer et le glacier !!! Juste parfait ! Merci à Neira notre guide passionnée pour ses explications et son sourire !
L’équipe est vraiment sympa et agréable !
Ah et ... j’oublie le pisco sour agrémenté d’un glaçon millénaire récupéré devant nous par l’équipage !
À faire absolument, ça vaut la peine de casser sa tirelire !

Increíble
Jan. 2019 • Family
Reserve, este tour un poco indeciso, pero una vez que nos embarcamos y empiezas a ver el amanecer desde tierra del fuego, los paisajes son imperdibles.
Después llegamos al Parque Marino Francisco Coloane y las Ballenas Jorobadas comenzaron a acercarse y a hacer un show increíble, vimos alrededor de 10 ballenas a lo largo del tour. También pudimos observar lobos de mar que iban como siguiendo a las ballenas, y muchas aves como albatros, cormoranes y petreles. Después llegamos a un glaciar donde nos sirvieron whisky con hielo del glaciar. De verdad una tremenda experiencia.
