Latin America Coastal Cruises

Explore the untouched coastline and hinterland of Latin America on our adventurous expedition coastal cruises.

Explore the untouched coastline and hinterland with Journey Latin America on one of our expedition coastal cruises to South America.

The spiralling popularity of and demand for cruising to visit far off and remote corners of the world has resulted in an ever-increasing number and variety of cruise experiences on offer around the world. These range from short 3-4 day cruises of discovery exploring just a corner of a fascinating region, often inaccessible except by sea, to epic expedition cruises conducted in stages, which cover both the northern and southern hemispheres.

Two small companies with just a handful of vessels, Skorpios and Australis, are pioneers in cruising the fjords and glaciers of Patagonia, and offer short cruises to Tierra del Fuego, alsoCape Horn, and the Southern Patagonian Ice-field. Build these in to your holiday exploring this remote wilderness at the southern tip of South America.   

Meanwhile, at a time when globally cruise companies are becoming increasingly corporate, with larger vessels, more guests and no end of gimmicks, Silversea takes pride in its ownership by one Roman family who add a touch of Italian style to their fleet of relatively small, and definitely luxurious, cruise and expedition vessels.

The expedition ships on our South American coastal cruises have been designed to push back the boundaries of exploration to the farthest corners of the planet, including the Polar regions, the Galápagos Islands and Patagonia, without compromising the over-arching ambition to provide a first class, ultra-comfortable service-orientated experience.

You can sign up for one, two three or more of these South American coastal cruises, which are a rare opportunity to get to know Latin America from the perspective of the sea but with many opportunities to travel inland to seek out the unique people and places of this exotic continent of vivid contrasts and extremes.

Our 9-day Journey Between The Seas holiday and our new 13 day expedition cruise to Panama and Costa Rica  travel to off-the-beaten-track locations along Panama's coast and includes the famous Panama Canal transit. On the shorter cruise travel aboard the luxury, 24-passenger MV Discovery, a motor yacht whose huge windows offer unfettered views of the Canal, the jungle-lined shores, exotic wildlife and maybe even a whale or two. The longer cruise, on MV Safari Voyager, takes you on an ambitious itinerary wildlife spotting on the Caribbean and Pacific coast of Panama and to a couple of the celebrated national parks of Costa Rica.  Another novelty, also on board the Safari fleet, is our cruise through the Sea of Cortez  along the shores of Mexico's Baja California, a great opportunity to discover wildlife and practice your skills in a kayak or snorkel.
