Australis Cruise Vessel Update for Season 2016 – 2017:
The Australis Cruises have been operating in the waters of extreme Patagonia for many years using the M/Via Australis and M/V Stella Australis vessels.
In January 2016, the company Cruceros Australis agreed to the sale of the M/V Australis vessel. Whilst this vessel will be replaced in future by one similar to design of the Stella Australis, for the 2016 -2017 season in Patagonia, this (the Stella Australis) will be only vessel operating these routes.
This has led to changes in possible routes as follows:
The Fjords of Tierra del Fuego (Punta Arenas – Ushuaia) Discover Patagonia (Ushuaia – Punta Arenas) & Darwin’s Route (Return Journey from either Punta Arenas or Ushuaia) trips will remain operational as per published dates.
The Patagonia Explorer (Punta Arenas – Ushuaia,) Wild Patagonia (Punta Arenas Return) & End of the World (Ushuaia return) cruise routes will not be operational for next season.
