The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to the winds that circle the Antarctic landmass which makes the weather hard to predict. In spring or early summer, fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rain and even snow. Even in summer (December to March), you should come prepared to find cold, strong winds (up to 130 km/hr) and rainfall. Summer’s average temperature is 11ºC (52ºF), ranging between 2 to 24ºC(35 to 75ºF).
Sea kayaking in Patagonia can be very unpredictable due to weather conditions. Sometimes the wind from the ocean blows with such force that waves break upstream, making navigation almost impossible. If you book this trip please keep in mind that it is weather permitting and that considerable physical effort is required.
We’ll provide the following gear:
Please note: Cotton is not recommended as it absorbs moisture and is difficult to dry.
We reserve the right to change the order of the days in any itinerary at the discretion of the trip guide based on operational considerations. The trip guide can modify the original itinerary of the trip, wait for better conditions, take a different route, or, in severe cases, ask for an evacuation in different embarkation; in this case, there will be no refund.
