The Strait of Magellan is both famous and infamous. Today you will navigate this world-renowned waterway by sea kayak.

First, you will transfer by motorcoach approximately 17 miles south to the Agua Fresca Bay area. Once there, you will receive a short briefing on how to use your double kayak, and how to paddle in tandem, along with safety instructions.

Start kayaking on the Strait of Magellan and get comfortable with your equipment and technique. During this adventurous ride you will experience direct contact with nature and water, navigate among local birds such as seagulls, ducks, caiquenes, coromanes and quetros, and you may even be joined by the friendly austral dolphins that seasonally migrate to this coastal area.

After approximately 1¼ hours kayaking, refreshments will be served and you’ll have a chance to change into your dry clothes before you return to the pier.
