Mini-Trek on Perito Moreno

I am going to El Calafate and renting a 4x4. I understand the best strategy for doing the mini-trek is to go early and take an early boat to beat the crowds.

A few questions:

Where do you go to catch the boat?

Where do you buy tickets for mini-trek? Most of the sites I've seen are for bus/trek combinations.

Can I just show up at Glaciar Park in morning and figure it out then or do I need to buy tickets in advance?

Thanks for any help.

buy your tickets in advance, tell them that you do not need transportation...and make it this way :

Go to the Glacier at dawn...beautiful and no crowds at all...bring a thermos with coffee and pastries and stay till 8.30 am

The boat for the Mini Trek, leaves from Puerto Las Sombras just half a mile from the Glacier decks.

First boat leaves 09.00 am...by 2.00 pm you get back and ready to leave the crowded Park, by that time..

But make sure you buy your tickets in town
