Smaller cruise ships will dock at the Public Pier inside Canal Tenglo, while larger cruise ships will tender to the same pier. From there, it is a short walk into the centre of the town. Puerto Montt is in Chile, and most of the large cruise companies, including Princess, Norwegian, and Royal Caribbean, offer cruises that include Puerto Montt on their itineraries. Passengers will usually fly to somewhere in South America, such as Buenos Aires or Santiago, to join the cruise.
Cruising to Puerto Montt is often part of a cruise around South America, taking in stops in other countries such as Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, and the Falkland Islands. You can also find longer cruises that may start or finish in Los Angeles, and include countries such as Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Depending on how much time you have available, most of these cruises will include excursions at the ports they stop off at. Alternatively, you may prefer to explore on your own.
