We are not a cruise, but a ferry, that is to say, a transport vessel of goods and passengers. Although we could say that we are a hostel that navigates across Patagonia.

Our service is designed for people who are not looking for luxuries, but rather an authentic journey. For slow travelers and backpackers who want to enjoy the
romanticism of traveling in a vessel from the 70's worthy of the the memorable filmed voyages of Jacques Cousteau, and who wish to live the adventure at the end of the world including inclement weather, the disconnection and relaxation that only a remote area can offer, no phone signal, while contemplating the majestic beauty of the Patagonian fjords in southern Chile, some of them untouched areas.

The ferries which are cargo ships adapted for the transportation of passengers and vehicles (cars, trucks, camping trailers, motorcycles and bicycles).
Each ship has a wide variety of accommodations, ample space for recreation and relaxation, along with a crew that is ready to give you the best service.

The trip starts in the Reloncaví Sound, Gulf of Ancud, and in the evening we enter the Apiao Channel and then the Gulf of Corcovado. We have started a great adventure!

 

Day 2
Moraleda Channel - Ocean Area - Golfo De Penas

 

At dawn we sail through the southernmost part of the Gulf of Corcovado,  where the Captain, according to the weather and tidal current information
for the channels and the positions of celestial bodies such as the Moon and Sun, shall decide the most appropriate route for continuing the
journey, having among others, the following choices for going out into theopen ocean:


.Boca del Guafo
.Ninualac Channel
.Pulluche Channel


There is also the possibility of accessing other channels, depending on thevisibility conditions and traffic of other ships. If he chooses to go into the
open sea through the Boca del Guafo, we will immediately sail between the Archipelago de los Chonos and Isla Guafo, to quickly enter the Ocean
Area.

If the choice is to go through the Ninualac Channel, sailing all morning through the Moraleda Channel, we will approach Tuap Island, where we
will turn towards the West and begin to navigate through the Ninualac Channel, entering the open sea in the afternoon.

On the other hand, if he chooses to sail through the Pulluche Channel, we
will pass through the Moraleda channel, a transit area for remarkable sailors and canoeists from the Los Chonos and Chiloé Archipiélagos, to
later sail the Errázuriz Channel and then the Chacabuco Channel, to later enter the Pulluche Channel - the most lush in vegetation (Lenga or
Southern Beech and Patagonian Cypress forests), and with luck, we will see marine bird, sea lions, and native dolphins called “Toninas”.

In the evening we will start sailing though the open sea in the area immediately north of the Golfo de Penas, to enter it at night.
The open ocean crossing lasts about 12 hours with good weather and it is possible to see humpback, Minke, and blue whales (depending on the
time of year and the weather).

 

Day 3
Bajo Cotopaxi - Puerto Edén

 

We wake up sailing through the fjords and crossing the Messier Channel with a depth of 1,270 meters, the deepest of the zone; in this channel we
will be able to see the cargo ship Capitán Leonidas, which has been shipwrecked since the 1970’s on a sunken islet called “Bajo Cotopaxi”.
This ship is presently used as a lighthouse and reference point for sailors.
Later we will cross the English Narrows, to reach the village of Puerto Edén* where the last indigenous Alacalufes reside. Puerto Edén is located
on Wellington Island, which forms part of the Bernardo O’Higgins NationalPark, the largest in Chile.

 

After a short stay in this port, we start sailing through the Patagonian channels, called Paso del Indio, Paso del Abismo, the Wide, Concepción,
Inocentes Channels, Guía Narrows, Sarmiento Channel, Farquar Pass, Collingwood Narrows, Unión Channel, Sobenes Pass (the southernmost
