Puerto Eden – Puerto Natales 265nm
We received by ferry 1200L of fuel to make sure that we make it all the way to Puerto Natales. We had lots of rain and it was cold and miserable. The camp was nice but the rain did not stop. The crew cheered finally up then we had a hot meal and a warm fire. We left early morning visited another glacier and had dolphins with us to guide us through the ice. The rest of the journey was long but with the company of whales and lots of sea life it made easy.


Human Beings? No one Here

We were relieved when we arrived in Caleta Tortel after crossing the Gulf of Penas. As you can see, there are no streets in this village, only wooden runways. The residents do everything by boat. We are going to stay here for a few days, repair some things on the boats, cutting our videos and visit a glacier tomorrow.

How our mornings look like? Lots of discussions. 🙂


Human beings? No one here. Only these guys, everywhere!
