My wife, daughter and I took the boat trip to Parque Nacional Bernardo O'Higgens. Great trip even though the weather was cold and rainy. Everything was excellent and the operators allowed for many photo opportunities. Morning coffee and afternoon whiskies were a nice touch. The park was beautiful and it was fascinating to get so close to the glacier. Lunch... More

Everyone from the captain to the guide was fantastic. I would rate them higher if there were more stars. The trip on boat takes you to the glaciers, where you can walk up and touch them as well as to a ranch for great lunch. Do not miss going on a tour with this company.

This company sold us an overpriced all day tour to two glaciers. The boat ride was packed and the wildlife along the way sparse in contrast to other tours taken in Patagonia and other parts of the world. (The touted sea lion colony had one sea lion). The glaciers themselves were middling. The lamb served at the lunch was overdone.

We took this 7-8 hour boat tour to visit the Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers. The boats seated about 70-80 passengers inside, and there were outdoor areas for viewing and/or smoking. The out-and-back trip passed a giant cormorant-covered rock, a number of impressive fjord-side mountains and waterfalls en route to the glaciers. We were all there for the magnificent glaciers, and... More

we were at singular hotel, and we could go to visit the glaciares (Balmacedo and Serrano) with then, but we prefered to go in a larger group (with the 21 de mayo boats) = and specially - to make the "river arriba" in a small boat (just perfect)

Great boat trip. Bring warm clothes and water proof gear so you can enjoy the view from outside if the weather is foul.

I took the full day tour to glaciers Serrano and Balmaceda, 3 hours each way to reach the glacier with view on the way to see the sea lions and the condors and an half hour walk to the glacier. on the way back enjoy a whisky with ice glacier before enjoying a hearty lunch bbq. Great service from Lola.

This boating experience to see majestic mountains, water falls and glaciers was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Patagonia. The hike to Glacier Serrano was easy but invigorating. Well worth the expense...
