Puerto Natales (CL) - Puerto Montt (CL)

28 March - 09 April 2025

From Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt is a voyage of discovery. There will be a limited time to really explore along the Chilean coastline, heading into the fjords, anchoring beneath towering cliffs, and making time for some amazing hikes. Due to Tecla’s schedule, you’ll need to make 90 miles per day, meaning that you will not be able to stop or hike every day, more likely every other day. You will, however, make over 1000 nautical miles, surrounded by wild scenery, go for hikes, and be a part of a watch sailing during the night. If that’s something you are looking forward to, then this is your voyage.
During the voyage you will see sea lions, whales, dusky dolphins and a wide range of wildlife. While on watch you will help steer the ship, taking turns on the helm. You will help set and change the sails when needed and help the crew out where needed.
Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.


Puerto Natales is a Patagonian city in southern Chile. Located next to the Torres del Paine National Park and the Patagonian fjords it is a great tourist destination for those who like outdoor adventures. Spend a day exploring the surrounding nature by bike, or join a kayaking excursion. Visit the Nao Victoria Museum in nearby Punta Arenas or enjoy a leisurely meal in one of the local restaurants.

Puerto Montt is a port city in southern Chile and a great starting point for many nature trips. Visit the
Volcan Osorno which is a must-see with its breathtaking views. Take a walk through Angelmo fish market to get a taste of the town's atmosphere and later enjoy the seafood in one of the local resturants. Finally, visit the Catedral de Puerto Montt, a uniqie wooden church with long history.
