board, crew members will offer passengers a welcome talk along with some information for a safe and enjoyable trip. Passengers must stay on board at night, Navimag Ferry departure is on early Tuesday.
Tuesday: Departure will take place at dawn. We will go to Union Inlet (Spanish Seno Unión) to start our navigation, coming to the narrowest passage on the route, White Narrows (Spanish
Angostura White), which is only 80 meters wide. Later, we’ll reach the southernmost latitude of our trip, Sobenes Pass, and we’ll continue down the Farquar, which will take us to Sarmiento Channel in order to reach Peet Estuary in the evening.
Wednesday: At dawn we arrive to the town of Puerto Edén, which is located on Wellington Island, one of the biggest islands in Chile and is part of Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, the largest National Park in Chile. We continue our journey to the north, which will take us to the English Narrows (Spanish Angostura Inglesa), a narrow passage that allows navigation of a single ship at a time.
We continue along the Messier Channel, where we will see the “Captain Leonidas” Cargo Ship, which has been stranded since the 70s, semi-submerged on an island called “Bajo Cotopaxi,” which is
currently used as a lighthouse and point of reference for sailors. At sunset we’ll begin sailing the ocean offshore in the area of the Gulf of Penas, a crossing that lasts 12 hours during which time it is possible to see humpback whales (depending on the time of year and weather). (The landing at Puerto Eden is done only if sea conditions, schedule and weather permit).
Thursday: At dawn we will be in Inchemó sailing Pulluche Channel, the most abundant in vegetation (beech tree and cypress forests) and if we are lucky we might see “Toninas” dolphins, sea lions and pelagic birds. We’ll continue along Costa and Errazuriz Channel to reach Moraleda Channel after lunch, which will ultimately lead us to the Gulf of Corcovado.
Friday: Finishing our adventure, we’ll sail through the Gulf of Ancud and the Reloncaví Inlet (Spanish Seno de Reloncaví), arriving at Puerto Montt in the morning.
