Here is a new way of getting to know the advantages of this place: navigating off the harbor shore. An ideal excursion for those who have half a day to spare in the city.
From September to April, visitors may embark on a regular voyage on board a modern craft off the city shore and see the most outstanding attractions in this tourist destination.
For such purpose, it is necessary to approach the municipal pier, from where the craft sets sail. Heading South along the Señoret Channel, the anglers pier is reached. At this point, the craft stops to watch the daily activities of these seamen with more detail. Among nets and ropes, they wave at the curious visitors.
Then, the ship sails on along the coast opposite the city, passing by the cattle ranches of the region. From the craft, a beautiful panoramic sight of the metropolis, with Mount Dorotea in the background, may be observed. The Costaustralis Hotel, with its particular architecture, catches everyone's attention.
The ship continues sailing along the channel among the Puerto Natales fjords. As it moves towards the North, the landscape gets wilder and more attractive, leaving the waterfront promenade behind.
Level of Difficulty: Low.
Duration: 2 hours.
Timetables: Be at the municipal pier at 09.30 am and at 4.00 pm.
Recommendations: Wear warm clothes, as the weather conditions vary every second in these latitudes. It is also necessary to wear UV sunglasses, sun protection and cocoa butter for the lips.
