Chaiten - Puerto Montt Route
Taking a ferry on the Puerto Montt Chaiten route is a scenic and a cultural immersion option. You should not be on a tight time schedule. Stormy weather can delay arrivals. A new boat has joined the fleet called the Don Baldo complete with berths for the voyage between Puerto Montt and Chaiten (11 hours). Other ferries, the Pincoya, on this route are like landing craft and the the accommodations are tight and earthy. The schedule is available online and you can see which ferry is going the day you want to depart. Usually Fridays and Saturday from Chaiten to Puerto Montt coordinating with the end of our Andes to the Ocean trips. IF you like getting off the beaten path and enjoy seeing the real Chile including the evacuated city of Chaiten and the devastation that was caused by the 2008 eruption of the volcano this is a very interesting place to see and perhaps a once in a life time opportunity to view.  The schedule of the ferry has fit in with the end of the Andes to the Ocean trip by sea kayak and the Andes to the Ocean horseback trip.  As of 2011 there has been a public bus that meets the ferry and travels to Futaleufu on all days of the week except Thursday. Take a look at the web page of the ferry you are interested in.


Chaiten - Island of Chiloe Route
A few times a week there are ferries from Chaiten to Chiloe a 4 hour voyage. From Chiloe there are buses through the island and back to Puerto Montt. Not a bad way to see these islands if you have time. These are scheduled several times a week from Chaiten.


Puerto Montt- Puerto Natales Route (Gateway to Torres del Paine)
These are big ships that offer a very interesting way to get to the South of Patagonia. They are comfortable, but not luxury cruise ships. You can meet interesting people on this voyage, and the trip itself can be a fascinating cultural immersion experience. Not to mention the beauty of the fijords and the giant ice fields in the mountains, if the weather is cooperative.
