Port Description

Puerto Chacabuco, Chile

Since its appearance in Godzilla and the Sea Monster, the giant condor hasn't been spotted by many a human eye, but at Puerto Chacabuco, the odds of seeing the nearly extinct bird are increased. Hundreds of other bird species, including the black-necked swan, also call this area of fjords and glaciers home. The massive hulk of the Andes stretches straight into the sea, where calving glaciers release plumes of ice like smoke. Through the thick forest, past hanging bridges, lies the city of Coyahaique, a choice place to cast a line into the lazy river and just chill the Chilean day away.
