The Alba is a traditionally made wooden 66 foot motor boat that provides full accommodations for 10 guests with all inclusive service, incredible meals, the best chilean wines and international spirits, our guests are tended by 4-5 (fluent English speaking Captain, Coastal Pilot, Engineer, Chef, Seaman) crew members depending on the trip needs. The crew is trained in fly fishing, history, culture and wildlife so as to provide a complete and enriching experience. We have 5 cabins, all of them with a private bathroom, 3 of them with big King size beds and 2 of them with bunk beds, (one of the 3 king size beds can be converted into a twin bed cabin).
Our trips are tailor made to fit the group's interests, choosing the appropriate sites to visit and the menu depending on our guests, yet still remaining flexible throughout the journey in case of any new requirements. We only plan for one group every trip, even if the group is smaller than the full occupancy we will not offer any more vacancies, thus ensuring the group with a private and pleasurable ambiance inside the boat.
Our touring area is between Puerto Montt and Puerto Aysen in Chile, our base port is Dalcahue. We normally provide theme based trips centering on different interests, offering things like fly fishing, whale or other fauna watching, navigational, cultural-historical (Chiloe churches have been declared world heritage) or just relaxing (thermal springs, short walks, etc.), among others.
The Alba has been sailing for the last 10 years from Puerto Montt in the north to Isla Magdalena too the South. Aroundd the base port of Dalcahue we find approximately 30 inhabited islands, only reachable by boat they maintain a lot of the essence of the ChiloĂŠ lifestyle. Sailing through these islands we may find whales, dolphins, sea lions, penguins, flamingos, and many other different birds.
Due to the abruptness of the Andean range there are various naturally formed thermal springs in the area.
There are fish, shellfish, octopus, crabs, king crabs and many other local delicacies that can be observed discovered and caught while visiting the area.
We recommend bringing a good camera as the scenery and the lighting of the predominant cloud formations make for incredible pictures.
Aboard the Alba is the best way to experience the Northern Patagonia. Sail through the Archipielago of Chiloé, bathe in unforgettable thermal springs, watch the whales surface in the Corcovado Gulf end eat the freshest seafood ever, in a yacht just for your group.
