Day 01 (Friday) Puerto Montt – Gulf Corcovado
Passenger boarding will take place from 11:00 to 13:00 hrs. at our offices located at Angelmó 1735, Puerto Montt, where our port staff will receive your luggage and guide you to board your vehicle if you are traveling with it. Passengers will board the ferry at 13:30 hrs. Once on board, crew members will give passengers a welcome talk along with some information for a safe and entertaining navigation, to later set sail at 20:00 hrs. and navigate through the Patagonian Fjords, with final destination the city of Puerto Natales. The navigation begins by the Reloncavi Sound, Gulf of Ancud and at nightfall we enter the Apiao Channel and then the Corcovado Gulf. We have just started a great adventure.

Day 02 (Saturday) Messier Channel – Puerto Eden – Gulf of Penas
The dawn surprises us navigating the southernmost part of the Corcovado Gulf, where the Captain, according to the meteorological information received, the data of the tidal currents in the channels and the ephemerides of stars such as the Moon and the Sun, will decide the most appropriate route to continue the voyage, having among others, the following options of exit to the Oceanic Area: 1.- Boca del Guafo, 2.- Ninualac Channel, 3. With the possibility of accessing other channels, depending on visibility, traffic and crossing with other vessels. If you choose to go out to the open sea through the mouth of the Guafo, you will immediately sail between the Chonos Archipelago and Guafo Island, to quickly exit to the Oceanic Area. If the option is to sail through the Ninualac Channel, sailing all morning through the Moraleda Channel, we will reach the vicinity of Tuap Island, where we will turn to the west, and begin to sail the Ninualac Channel, leaving the open sea in the afternoon. On the other hand, if you choose to sail through the Pulluche Channel, you will transit through the Moraleda Channel, a place of transit of notable sailors and canoeists of the Chonos and Chiloé Archipelagos, to later sail the Errázuriz Channel and then the Chacabuco, to then enter the Pulluche Channel, the most exuberant in vegetation (Lenga and Cypress forests) and if luck accompanies us we could see “Toninas” dolphins, sea lions and wild birds. At nightfall we will start the oceanic navigation in the sector immediately north of the Golfo de Penas, to enter fully into it during the night. The open sea crossing lasts approximately 12 hours with good weather and where it is possible to see humpback, minke and blue whales (depending on the time of the year and the weather).

Day 03 Sunday Lower Cotopaxi – Puerto Eden
We wake up sailing between fjords and crossing the Messier Channel that reaches 1,270 meters deep, a feature that makes it the deepest in the area; in this channel we will also have the opportunity to meet the cargo ship “Captain Leonidas”, which is stranded since the 70s on a submerged islet called “Bajo Cotopaxi”, this ship is currently used as a navigation lighthouse and landmark for sailors. Shortly after, we will cross the Angostura Inglesa, to reach the town of Puerto Eden* where the last population of indigenous Alacalufes of Chile is located, which is located on Wellington Island, one of the largest in Chile and part of the Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, the largest in Chile. After a short stay in that locality, we restart our navigation through the Patagonian channels, called Paso del Indio, Paso del Abismo, Canales Wide, Concepción, Inocentes, Angostura Guía, Canal Sarmiento, Paso Farquar, Estrecho Collingwood, Canal Unión, Paso Sobenes (the southernmost of our route), Paso Escobar Doxrud and Canal Morla Vicuña.

Day 04 Monday Angostura White – Puerto Natales
We will wake up sailing the Santa Maria Channel, and then we will arrive at the narrowest pass of the route, the White Angostura, which is only 80 meters wide. Then we will navigate in the Seno Union to later enter the access channel to the city of Puerto Natales, where our great adventure ends.
* The disembarkation of the Ferry, the transit in the channels, will be done only if the sea conditions, itinerary and weather conditions allow it, always at the Captain’s discretion.
