Never ever book this ferry. It is organised chaos. We have been stuck in Puerto Natales Habour for 6 hours. Are not allowed to reclaim our cases and we can either disembark sometime after midnight or stay on board unt 6 am.

Definitely not my usual way to travel but wow! Spectacular sail through the fjords and a truly relaxing way to travel. Plus, fantastic crew and interesting people travelling. Much better way to get to Puerto Natales and Torres del Paines than by airplane and bus!

I recently traveled with a friend from Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt on the Navimag ship Edén. When I purchased our tickets, which in and of itself, was a fairly difficult, time-consuming, and confusing process, I was informed that we would be taking the ship...More

This bears repeating - Navimag runs a ferry service whose main purpose is to transport goods and livestock between Pto Natales, Pto Montt and points in between. So, keeping this in mind (& despite the very high price) the experience exceeded our expectations. Our departure...More
