At sunset, we start the ocean navigation in the area of the Penas Gulf, an approximate 12-hour crossing, where it is possible to see humpback, Minke, and blue whales, (depending on the time of year and climate).
At dawn, the Captain will assess the weather information received, and with the information on the tidal currents in the channels and the positions of celestial bodies like the moon and the sun, he will decide the most appropriate route to continue the journey with the following options to leave the open Ocean Area: 1.- Pulluche Channel, 2.- Ninualac Channel, 3.- Boca de Guafo.
There is also the possibility of accessing other channels depending on the visibility and the traffic of other ships.
If he decides the Pulluche channel, the lushest in vegetation (Southern Beech and Patagonian cypress forests), with luck, we will see marine birds, sea lions, and native dolphins called “Toninas”.
We enter the Chacabuco Channel, and then sail through the Errázuriz channel, and finally sail through the Moraleda channel, a transit spot for notable sailors and canoeists from the Chonos and Chiloé archipelagos. If the choice is through the Ninualac channel, we will reach the area around Isla Tuap, later entering the Moraleda Channel.
Finally, if the option is to continue in the open sea through the Boca del Guafo, we will sail amongst the Chonos Archipiélago to continue our route towards Puerto Montt.
