TRIP DESCRIPTION

We will leave from our meeting point very early in the morning on a 50 km journey south of Punta Arenas. This Kayak with Whales begins with a navigation to the point where we will disembark the kayaks, in order to be able to row with the humpback whales present in the place during the season. In the same way, within the Francisco Coloane Marine Park, we can see different animals such as sea lions, petrels, cormorants and southern dolphins, among others, all in the Patagonian landscape made up of mountains, glaciers and forests. After this, we will begin the trip back to Punta Arenas, where our activity ends.
