Sea Kayaking through the Chonos, Patagonia

  • Basecamp Retreat
  • Active Adventure
  • 10 days; 9 nights
  • 1 to 5 travelers
  • Begins & ends in Coyhaique
Paddle through the remote, majestic and storm-battered Chonos Archipelago off the Western Coast of Chile. On this 10 day expedition, you will sleep on the beaches of the densely forested, uninhabited islands. You will learn the technical sea-kayaking skills, backcountry living, risk management, basic weather reading, emergency protocol, and route planning skills -- leaving you well equipped to pursue your own basic sea kayaking expeditions in the future. You will have the opportunity to paddle among blue whales, penguins, dolphins, orcas, and many other remarkable creatures. There will be an opportunity to learn to surf our Sea Kayaks. If weather permits, we will attempt to make it to Isla Kent, known as the "Bermuda Triangle of South America" -- overlooking the open Pacific Ocean. This expedition is not for the feint of heart. The weather is harsh and volatile, and it is highly possible that you will spend days hunkering under our tarps through storms on the remote beaches. But if you can be comfortable in this environment, you can be comfortable everywhere. If you seek a more mellow and tranquilo sea kayaking expedition, we can work together to plan a custom expedition to Baja, Mexico -- where you will find blue skies and sun.read more
