Skorpios is the upscale cruise service to Laguna San Rafael, offering deluxe onboard accommodations, great food, and all-around high quality. The rough-hewn wood cabins come with berths or full-size beds (or both, for families), in standard rooms or suites. The Skorpios II boards 130 people, although the trips are not usually heavily booked. Skorpios offers 7-day cruises along the eastern coast of Chiloé near Castro, then down to the glacier. On the return trip, the ship detours up the Fjord Quitralco to visit the remote hot springs there. Heading back to Puerto Montt, the ship cruises along the southern coast of Chiloé, stopping in Castro for an afternoon excursion. Skorpios offers service from September to May.
