Launching in 2018, Ventus Australis is a new state-of-the-art ship carrying up to 210 passengers in 100 cabins. Its name, Latin for "Southern Winds", is a tribute to the distinctive weather of Tierra del Fuego and the remote tip of South America through which it navigates. Join Ventus Australis on a journey to Patagonia and step ashore at fabled Cape Horn.

Designed to maneuver Patagonia's narrow fjords and channels, Ventus Australis is under construction at Asenav, the internationally acclaimed Chilean shipyard. She will feature the latest regulations regarding safety at sea and protecting the marine environment.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
