Sail through the icy glacier spotted waters to Francisco Coloane Marine Park to look for the majestic Humpback whale, visit small islands to see black-browed albatross and elephant seals, kayak through the Magellan Strait in the direction of Rupert Island, among the silly and happy penguins, petrels, sea lions and skuas.
The Coyhaique-Aysén region in Patagonia is world famous for the incredible fly fishing opportunities. Anglers come from all over the world to experience a day floating on the Rio Simpson, Manihuales or Rio Aysén.
