Our center faithfully represents the architecture of Chiloe (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 diferents 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.

Our sea kayaking center offers sea kayaking programs from 5 to 8 days in protected waters, including a mothership. No previous experience is needed. Our trips originate in our Lodge on Chiloe Island. You can also combine any of our Sea Kayaking Programs with other highlights in southern Chile. We are located halfway between Chile's Lake District and the inside passage of northern Patagonia.

Our wooden support vessel was built by traditional ship builders of Chiloe, famous for building ships specially adapted to these waters. The maritime heritage of this region called for sturdy ships that would transport people and goods throughout the channels and islands of the Chiloe archipelago. Our local full time crew of three (captain, first mate, cook) ensure our safety and add a cultural touch to our trip that can only be experienced with people who have lived their entire lives in these waters.

The ship is directed from a bridge with all of the necessary navigational equipment and radios, to maintain constant contact with our sea kayaking guides. The interior of the ship is an ample space that can comfortably shelter up to 10 people, with a galley that prepares sumptuous meals of fish, shellfish and other local specialties. Other on board amenities include a bathroom, ample space on the deck to enjoy the outdoors, a support dinghy with an outboard motor as well as space to store all of our sea kayaks and equipment.
