Operator's Itinerary

Day 1: Kayak the gulf of San Jose

Early in the morning, we will drive from Puerto Piramides to the gulf of San Jose, where our adventure begins. With our guide's instructions we will set up our kayaks for the forthcoming trip. The guide will give us a precise briefing of security guidelines and environmental regulations. We can take our time practising and feeling comfortable with our kayaks before we start. The starting point is Camp 39 and we set off for the Punta Conos area, where we will stop for a rest and lunch. After two more hours of paddling we'll stop to set up our first camp, where we will be able to enjoy a wonderful sunset and a delicious dinner.  In this area it is possible to observe whales from our kayaks and from the shore.

The total paddling distance for today is approx 10 kilometres.


Day 2: Kayaking Fracasso Bay

After breakfast we break camp and return to our kayaks to visit the remains of a Spanish fort. After a lunch stop on the beach, we will follow some cliffs along to enchanted bay where we will set up camp. Once we have stretched our legs, there is the chance to hike up the cliffs, for a panoramic view of the gulf of San Jose. This area is one of the best to see whales close to the shore.

The total paddling distance for today is approx 15 kilometres.


Day 3: Visit to a sea lion colony

After breakfast and breaking camp we start our last lap to Villarino Beach. We will pass a southern sea lion colony along the way and the sociable creatures will probably dive into the water and come to greet us. In the afternoon we will be met by a vehicle to take us back to Puerto Piramides.

The total paddling distance for today is approx 10 kilometres.
