PUERTO MONTT - CHAITÉN
Naviera Austral, 10 hours, ferry, from US$ 32

It is the most direct way to get to Chaitén from the continent, since there is no road between the two cities, separated by fjords. Leaving Puerto Montt, the boat crosses the interior sea of the Chiloé archipelago, through calm waters protected by the Isla Grande of Chiloé. With good visibility it is possible to see a chain of high summits and volcanoes in the continent. Unfortunately, most services are done during the night, which spoils the chance to enjoy the view.

This journey is made by Naviera Austral with its boats Pincoya and Don Baldo. Both carry cargo, vehicles and passengers, since the matime route is one of the best transport and comunication options in the zone. The Don Baldo offers cabin accommodation. It is possible to buy seats ("butaca") or just a "general ticket" without seat. The ferry Don Baldo has also cabins with berths for 4 people.

Usually there is space for passengers until shortly before the departure. However, if travelling by car, it is better to make a booking first, especially during the summer.
