Australis Cruises was established in 1990 in order to operate tourist cruises in the Patagonia region including Argentina and Chile destinations. The Mare Australis was until recently the only ship in this operation, however the brand new Stella Australis has been added to the fleet to navigate the Magellan Strait and Beagle Channel, exploring one of the most beautiful and untouched regions on Earth: Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. There are two different choices, a 3 or a 4 night program from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas and vice versa, from September to April.
Cruceros Australis S.A. promotes and sells ship tickets for the Expedition Cruisers M/N Mare Australis and M/N Via Australis, of the Cruising Companies, Transportes Marítimos Terra Australis S.A. and Transportes Marítimos Via Australis S.A. that sail the Magellan Strait and Beagle Channel, exploring one of the most beautiful and unexplored regions of the world such as Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. Operating tour cruisers in the Chilean-Argentinean Patagonia, we offer 3 or 4 night programs from October to April every year, having over 15 years’ experience.
The Stella will have a capacity of 210 passengers luxuriating in 100 cabins, each 177 square feet. Guests can choose between cabins with a large double bed or two twin beds. For those seeking roomier accommodations and larger beds, superior cabins are available. Cabin highlights include picture windows, independent climate controls, private bathrooms and a satellite phone.
