EXPEDITIONS & SHORE TOURS

Shore Excursions

Expeditions & Shore Excursions

Two shore excursions / expeditions or activities are offered most days, ranging from hikes of differing levels to Zodiac tours. A thorough briefing with slides the day before gives you a good idea of what to expect.
All disembarkation is via the aft platform, where two Zodiacs can “dock” at once. The process is swift and efficient, with maximum attention to safety. You hang a tag on a board by your cabin number to show that you’ve gone ashore. Excursions are divided by language group and assembling for trips ashore takes place in different lounges, so there’s no sensation of being herded, or in a rush to leave the ship.
Once ashore, conditions vary. At Cape Horn, there’s a steep, slippery wooden staircase leading to a wind-blown cliff and a short walk to the lovely Albatross monument and the striped lighthouse, manned by a Chilean naval officer and his wife, who live here for a year at a time. In Wulaia Bay, you walk along a rickety jetty, while on other landings, the Zodiacs pull up on stony beaches and the crew attach a metal ramp so you don’t have to jump over the side.
Hikes are mainly flat but you need to be pretty fit for the “challenging” walk in Wulaia Bay, which is a route that marches up a steep hill. It’s made very clear that the walk in Garibaldi fjord is only for the super-fit, as it involves clambering over steep rocks, knee-deep mud and traversing a waterfall. Most passengers on this day opt for scenic cruising and observing the glacier from the warmth of the lounges.
