Whale-watching in Chile’s Patagonia is like no other. The three-day sea journey starts at Strait of Magellan. Before each encounter, our trained local guides, many of whom are fishermen that have lived by the sea all their lives, must locate the mammals from early hours in different lookouts. This program includes trained guides and is committed to strictly maintain each region’s sustainability guidelines.

We have also added technology and comfort features that are totally new to the international whale-watching circuit. Travelers will use powerful binoculars to spot the familiar plumes spouting out of the whales’ blowholes. Whales are extremely intelligent species, so travelers must follow their diving intervals of up to half an hour to cautiously approach them with the motors cut. Throughout the navigation route, travelers will find a rich population of small endemic cetaceans such as Peale`s dolphins, Commerson`s dolphins, Dusky dolphins, Chilean and Black dolphins.

During whale season (roughly from mid February to mid March), those who are lucky are able to spot larger whale species such as humpback whales, orcas, killer whales, and the classic blue whale.
