I discovered Cruceros Marpatag like a CSI investigator --by searching the name of the ship "Leal" from an enlarged TripAdvisor picture. This gourmet lunch cruise is not advertised anywhere, but a search on the internet of Cruceros Marpatag will bring you to this hidden treasure....More

I had an amazing experience when I was sailing in the Glaciares Gourmet. If you want to see the glaciers up close, choose Marpatag. Good trip, food and staff! Besides that, I consider this day trip the most magical ever!

Superb excursion with very friendly staff. The boat is comfortable, the captain took enough time for slowing down or stopping the boat to be able to take pictures. Highly recommended.
