Sea Kayaking Destinations

Welcome to Altue Sea Kayaking and to the magical mosaic that makes up Chile's northern Patagonia landscape, a land of fjords and wild mountains that plunge to the sea, of picturesque islands and mysterious byways.
Programs from 2 to 9 days in protected waters, where no previous experience
with sea kayaks is needed and supported by a 50 foot mothership.
Our trips originate in our Sea
Kayaking Center in the cultural heart of Chiloe Island, located halfway between Chile's Lake District and the inside passage of northern Patagonia.
You can also combine any of our sea kayaking
programs with other highlights in southern Chile.
Our combined American and Chilean staff, assures the
best sea kayaking and an unmatched level of service in a truly Chilean Style.  (top)
 
Good English Spoken

The Andean fjords of Pumalin Park  (top)
Where the snow capped mountains plunge to the sea.

 

Come join us for an unforgettable adventure in the magnificent fjords of Comau, Quintupeu and Cahuelmó, on the eastern side of the Gulf of Ancud, where wild mountains cliffs soar out of the dark waters to touch the sky.
See stupendous glacial valleys,
primeval temperate rain forests, and numerous kinds of marine wildlife, including dolphins, sea lions, penguins and other sea birds.
Smack your lips over fresh salmon steaks, or steamed shellfish
gathered from the cliffs at low tide, all prepared by our cook in the miniature galley of our picturesque support vessel. 
Watch the sunset on the peaks as you relax in hot pools.
Spread your sleeping bag
under the diamond stars of the Southern Cross.
Words alone simply cannot express the unique
beauty and variety of this majestic land.

Chiloe archipelago (top)
Where the magic of traditional culture lives on.

Get immersed in the fascinating, cultural experience of Chiloe Island as we glide silently through the mysterious byways of this archipelago.
Spain once maintained it's last stronghold of colonial power in
South America in Chiloe.
Today, there are still vestiges of the original Araucanian way of life, which
combine harmoniously with the influences of the German immigrants of the late 1800s, and of modern-day Chile.
Our kayaks emulate the spirit of the fragile "dalcas", which natives used for traveling
in this region many centuries ago.
On one picturesque island we visit, you'll see an old moss covered
wooden church gracing the shoreline, as well as palafitos (stilt houses).
Taste guindao and rompón,
savor a rich curanto and other traditional cuisine that will delight your palate.
Wander through the local
market of Castro, where you'll see artisans at work on handicrafts that you can buy for surprisingly low prices.
Sea kayaking is life...the rest are details

Our Sea Kayaking Center (top)
Dalcahue - Chiloe Island

In the cultural heart of Chiloe, our center faithfully represents the architecture of this island (with wooden shingles) and is built on stilts over the ocean.
It includes a comfortable living space for lodging
and meals on the second floor, and a convenient place to store our kayaks and equipment on the first floor. 
This space opens to a series of decks on different levels,
providing a setting for instruction to our guests.
We also have an area specially designed for barbecues
and traditional curantos as well as a wood-fired hot-tub to relax in with your friends, after an invigorating day of paddling.
All our sea kayak programs end at our center, a perfect place for connections to other adventures in southern Chile.
Really great programs for everyone!
