Chacabuca Plans, 8 April 2010


Chacabuca is the smallest, most remote place we visit on this cruise. It is reached by tender from the ship beginning at 7am. We will probably catch a 900am tender after the tour excursions have left the ship. The town is 6 miles downstream of the original port which was blocked by a 1991 volcano. The area is remote within Chile, near a National Park which I presume the cruise lines would like to develop like the national forests of Alaska with bike rides, kayaking, and nature tours. Some of that is available here now, but the port isn’t even on the road whicdh was built to the port from the original 2400 person fishing village after the volcano. We plan to get the bikes to the road and to make out for the town, checking out the National Park along the way. We would like to stop in the town for lunch, perhaps fish, and internet use. Then we will return along the road and go beyond the tender pier as far as we can and still in time to catch the late tender.
