Santa Cruz cruise - Marpatag - Lake Argentino


Leal cruise on the lake Argentino

MARPATAG CRUISES
Héctor "Tiño" Resnik from Puerto Madryn, Pablo Querol and Matías Soriano from Trelew, they always been related with the outdoor life style and nautical activities. Tiño started at 18 on diving and boats. His first steps in the tourism business were a job in the whale watching activity for a travel agency and he moved to El Calafate in 1996 to work as the captain of one of the cruises on the lake Argentino travelling the glaciers. Tiño and Pablo always wanted to have their own proyect that's why in December 1999 they started to design the Leal Cruise which was built in San Fernando. During the first months they were travelling periodically from Puerto Madryn and after those months Tiño decided to stay in a house in the Delta together with the workers in order to finish all the details of the cruise giving its actual appearence. During this time Matías joined to this proyect. In February of 2001, the ship was finished and they navigated to Puerto Madryn starting the operation as expedition support and diving. They decided to move to El Calafate by the end of 2003 to navigate the lake Argentino with their so called program 'The Spirit of the Glaciers'. With a redesigned interior, adapted to offer the best confort and enough room for 14 passengers they started to operate this program on September, 2004. This program offers an exclusive way to enjoy the most of the glaciers on the Argentino lake, with all the confort of the Leal Cruise.
In 2009 they include a brand new cruise, much bigger, modern, plenty of technology. This cruise will navigate a new route, longer than that of the Leal cruise and will allow us to enjoy the Argentino lake and the impressive glaciers in a better way.
