season 2010/2011 this route is made by Naviera Puelche. The
trip is subdivided in two legs: from Hornopirén to
Leptepú with the boat Mailén and, after driving
10 kilometers through a dirt road, from Fiordo Largo to Caleta
Gonzalo with the ferry Tehuelche. There is one daily service
all year round. The departures of both boats are coordinated,
with departures at 10:30 from Hornopirén and at 14:00
from Caleta Gonzalo. In summer, there are two daily serveces.
The boats carry vehicles and passengers. Usually there is
availability for passengers until close to the departure time.
But if you are travelling by car, you must make a reservation
in advance, especially in summer. Reservations must be made
directly through the office of Naviera Austral in Puerto Montt.
