A Mothership Kayak Expedition.
Patagonia Chile | POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Presented by Ocean River Sports in partnership with Gear Up Adventures Inc.
Our kayak Mothership program in Patagonia, with capacity for 20 customers, will bring us a very personal and exclusive trip.
While we strive to make this itinerary as accurate as possible, it should be considered an approximate schedule of activities rather than a rigid schedule of events. Trip itineraries are also subject to revision due to weather conditions, road or trail conditions, government restrictions, and other factors beyond our control. We will be available to you 24/7 during the expedition as we coordinate and strive to ensure the accuracy of this experience as planned.
This trip consists of beginner to moderate levels of paddling with opportunities for more challenge on a case by case basis. There is a 3.5 hour flight to Punta Arenas, once on Santiago, and a 1.5 hour van transportation to reach the point of embarkment.
As we will be traveling on a ship, you must be aware that accommodations on board might be more cozy than you are used to. Nevertheless this doesn’t mean that it would affect your experience.
Weather is highly unpredictable at the end of the world; it’s not uncommon to experience all four seasons in one day.
