This catamaran service to Laguna San Rafael also owns the hotel at the port in Chacabuco, the Hostería Loberías del Sur, and they offer packages that include a stay here or 1-day journeys for travelers not lodging at the hotel. Catamaranes has its own private park, Aikén del Sur, which it visits for a half-day tour included in the 2- to 3-night packages. Also included in the packages is a typical Patagonian lamb barbecue. The company has a fleet of ships that are smaller and, therefore, offer a more personalized experience than the large Navimag ships, making this a good choice for day trips to the Laguna (the price is slightly higher than with Navimag). Trips include all meals, an open bar, onboard entertainment, and inflatable zodiac boat rides near the glacier.
