December 6th, 2016 Ferry Transbordadora Austral

Nice break from driving and a nice two day/night sail. 43 h comfortable sailing . Paid 120k Pp and 24k per running meter of car. 225k for me and 4.4m truck.
Makes sense money wise when calculating driving back to Cochrane to cross south. Food is ok but not much, if you can cook in your car, bring food. There are good reclining seats but I slept great in my car/bed. 12 + travelers to share stories with . Amazing nature with whales and dolphins.
Sailed through small icebergs at one point.
Recommend !!))
