The tour was excellent....The boat was in excellent running order. The crew were knowledgeable and friendly. We spent just the right amount of time cruising along the face of the glacier. The views were incredible....one of the highlights while in Patagonia. A must do....

I wouldn't take the chance. Most probably you'll be back around 7:00PM.
