Chilean Fjords Northbound

4 days - 3 nights

Day 1 - Port Natales

During the night we embark the ferry in Port Natales, in the National Park of Torres de Paine, for a voyage crossing the Patagonian Fiords until Port Montt in the Lake District. Before we set out we have a welcoming and an introductory talk.

Day 2 - Angostura White & Amalia Glacier

Close to midnight we weigh anchor and begin our way to seno Unión and Angostura White, in the Santa Maria canal, where the width of the channel is only 80 metres. This is one of the two entrance ports to the city of Port Natales. We continue taking a more southern route past el Farquar until the Sarmiento Canal. We then go to Ventisquero Skúa in el Seno Amalia, a glacier that we find in the Southern Ice Fields (Campo de Hielo Sur).

Day 3 - Port Edén & Cotopaxi

During the early morning on the second day we arrive at Port Edén in the Island of Wellington. The coasts of Port Edén, at the south of the Gulf of Penas, are inhabited by the Kaweskar and the unique manner of reaching the island is by boat. We continue our voyage to the north, to Angostura Inglesa which is to the east of the island taking the Messier Canal and the Paso del Indio, a very narrow passage that only allows one boat through at a time.

We follow the Messier Canal, where we encounter a small island called 'Bajo Cotopaxi' just in front of the Williams Island. It is here at the end of the 19th century that an English boat named Cotopaxi foundered. A cargo boat, named 'Captain Leonidas' had the same fate in the 1970s and it is possible to see its wreck. Late afternoon we reach the Pacific Ocean where it is possible to see humpback whales and dolphins.

Day 4 - Inchemó & Gulf of Corovado

In our ultimate full day of navigation we pass the island of Inchemó, in the region of Aysén, the entrance point to the Northern Ice fields crossing the Pulluche Canal with its luxuriant vegetation and forests of cypresses and lengas. During the day we should see the dolphins, sea lions and wild birds. We continue by the Costa Canal and Errázuriz until the Morelada Canal and the Gulf of Corcovado where we should see blue whales. We finish our voyage by entering the Gulf of Ancud and the Reloncaví Estuary in order to disembark during the morning at Port Montt.
