Here we are going to visit a small town called Achao with a nice sandy beach

Isla Grande de Chiloé, or Chiloé Island is the main island of the archipelago.

This island offers a combination of amazing landscapes and ancient architecture, namely its wooden churches made entirely in native timber with extensive use of wood shingles.

BAZILEUS expedition motor sailing yacht
BAZILEUS comes from Australia: she was launched in 1987, in Fremantle.
The yacht was built to a design by Ron Holland, a famous ship designer from New Zealand: a steel hull, a convenient layout, powerful rigging — all that makes her a perfect fit for long-haul expeditions.

Initially BAZILEUS was a part of a fishing fleet, later she was used by dive charters — that is why the yacht is equipped with a hydraulic tender lift to set boats and equipment afloat smoothly.

At the end of 2019 the owner made some hull maintenance and painted the deck.
Cost includes:

- accommodation in cabins (1/2 of double cabin in yacht)
- bed linen and towels
- parking (water/electricity)
- three meals a day on board
- all sigtseeings and visits as per itinerary
- professional crew


Cost excludes (additionally paid):

- flight to Puerto Montt (Chile) and back
- transfer to/from Puerto Montt airport and back
- personal medical insurance
- souvenirs, other incidentals
- satellite connection



Take with you:

- Warm fleece and thermal underwear.
- Thermosocks (several pairs).
- Rubber high boots with a warm inner insert for walking on the shore.
- Shoes for walking inside the yacht (sneakers).
- Parka, raincoat, pants and things made of waterproof materials.
