We are a family from Puerto Natales city, located in the Chilean Patagonia. We founded our company in 2007 with the construction of our first vessel, the Explorador Patagonia.
Then in 2010, due to the demand for a larger boat, we designed and built the Explorador Patagonia II.
We currently have the two vessels fully equipped with all the confortable and necessary facilities to deliver the best service, of a high quality and at the forefront.
Our company and its name "Patagonian Explorers" comes from the idea of innovating in the service of nautical tourism in the Patagonian fjords and channels, taking our clients to unexplored corners with the most beautiful, natural and unique landscapes.
We pool our knowledge, experience and desire to make our trips a memorable and unique experience, complemented with the natural beauty that can be seen during our voyages and activities.
He is the father of the family and the founder of the company. He lived in Puerto Eden (a little village in the channels) and he sailed through the patagonian fjords and channel during 12 years. Later he had two fishing boats which he used to transport principally sea urchins and king krabs, for 5 years.
During all this time he felt that those places he knew in the patagonian fjords and channels were so unique that he should show it to other people, so he decides to create his touristic company and take his clients to the most impresive spots he knows.
He is the middle son. From his 3 years old he navigates with his father throughout the patagonian channels. Since very little he worked as a fisherman during his vacations until he turned 18.
