PUERTO MONTT -> PUERTO CHACABUCO
Navimag, 24 hours, ferry, from US$ 65
It is the fastest way to get from Puerto Montt to the Aysén Region (save by flying there). Puerto Chacabuco is one hour away from Coyhaique, the region's capital, and it is also the start point for the touristic excursions towards the Laguna San Rafael, which is only a few hours of navigation to the south away.
Itinerary

Leaving Puerto Montt, the navigation continues through the interior sea of the Chiloé archipelago, with calm waters protected by the Isla Grande. With good visibility it is possible to see a chain of high summits and volcanoes in the continent. Entering the Corcovado gulf, which separates the archipelagos of Chiloé and Guaitecas, the sea gets tougher for some hours until reaching the Moraleda channel: again an area protected from the winds and waves. In the second half of the journey, the boat sails through fjords and islands of incomparable beauty, until arriving to Puerto Chacabuco after a 24-hour-journey.
