Get to know Punta Arenas from a different point of view.
Since Punta Arenas is located right at the world-known Strait of Magellan, what would be more reasonable than getting it to know the surroundings of the city from the sea?
How about a Kayak Tour on the Strait of Magellan?
Our half-day kayak tour runs twice a day – year-round, therefore, also during the Patagonian winter.
This kayak tour is possible for beginners.
Daily at 9:00 a.m. pick up at Hospedaje Magallanes in Punta Arenas. After a 20-minute transfer out of town and changing into the kayaking clothes and a brief introduction on how to use the kayaking equipment and kayaking itself, you are ready to take off. Directly in front of the city center you will be kayaking on the Strait of Magellan. Pass old docks that today are home to cormorants and other sea birds, continue towards the port and later to old ship wrecks that a long time ago were put ashore by a big storm. If the weather is on your side, go for a quick detour to a small sea lion colony, where these interesting marine mammals are dazing in the sun on a buoy. The total kayaking time is about two hours. Return to our hotel just after 1:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m.
