Description from owner

Description

The Alba is a traditionally made wooden 66 foot motor boat that provides full accommodations for 10 guests with all inclusive service, incredible meals, the best chilean wines and international spirits, our guests are tended by 4-5 (fluent English speaking Captain, Coastal Pilot, Engineer, Chef, Seaman) crew members depending on the trip needs. The crew is trained in fly fishing, history, culture and wildlife so as to provide a complete and enriching experience. We have 5 cabins, all of them with a private bathroom, 3 of them with big King size beds and 2 of them with bunk beds, (one of the 3 king size beds can be converted into a twin bed cabin).

Our trips are tailor made to fit the group's interests, choosing the appropriate sites to visit and the menu depending on our guests, yet still remaining flexible throughout the journey in case of any new requirements. We only plan for one group every trip, even if the group is smaller than the full occupancy we will not offer any more vacancies, thus ensuring the group with a private and pleasurable ambiance inside the boat.

Our touring area is between Puerto Montt and Puerto Aysen in Chile, our base port is Dalcahue. We normally provide theme based trips centering on different interests, offering things like fly fishing, whale or other fauna watching, navigational, cultural-historical (Chiloe churches have been declared world heritage) or just relaxing (thermal springs, short walks, etc.), among others.

“Toby 2014”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2014

Excellent experience. We had typical March Chiloe weather with a mix of sunny and rainy days. The food and service at the boat were great. In fact the sea food was outstanding, Kayaking and using the small motor boats were pluses. Visit to land locations were well supported. The "grill on the beach" outing was perfect.

“Amazing experience”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2014

Once again, 2 years after the first trip, the Alba experience was incredible. Food on board is outstanding making intense use of locally sourced seafood and shellfish. New (improved) canoes are really good to explore rivers and go fishing to remote places. Crew was friendly and helpful as always. I'm really waiting for the third trip in 2 years time.

“Beautifull sight views, excellent dinning and activities from the crew”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2014

A marvelous trip with good accomodations and an exquisit food on board, sometimes barbecues in open places surrounded by exhuberant vegetation. Absolutely recomended to escape from the cities and take a rest. Excelent service from all the crew including the on board chef.

“THE way to experience Patagonia and the Andean fjords!”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2014

This was my 9th time aboard the Alba and I can't wait to come back again! I cannot say enough about how unique this experience is and how well attended everyone was while aboard. The Alba has always been a special place to come to and truly one of a kind. It is a hand-made yacht built entirely out of local lumber for the sole purpose and of pleasure cruising the protected waters of Southern Chile (where the Andes meet the Pacific Ocean) while blending into the Patagonian landscape. This is not a cheap trip, but compared to the high-end hotels I have been to in Torres del Paine, the Alba provides a MUCH more unique and special experience with access to areas that only few people get to see a year. Having also been on charters in the US, Caribbean and Europe, this is the best value I have seen from the perspective of crew / guest ratio and uniqueness of experience. I have chartered other boats in the region prior to the construction of the Alba, and they do not compare - Alba has earned its reputation as the best boat and crew. Home to only small fishing and farming villages, the area is very sparsely populated. As much of the area is primarily accessible by water, one always feels much like an explorer as you approach each town without any other foreigners to be seen. The food is world-class with the full range of South Pacific shellfish and seafood gathered daily and Don Luis in charge of preparing the region's famous dishes. Note: your only alarm clock will be the smell of his fresh dough rising in the oven every morning Plenty of activities to do (kayak, hike, fish, beach comb) but navigating solo through the dramatic landscapes is the real highlight of the trip. For those who like to drive, el Capitan makes this a very interactive experience and you can easily find yourself spending the afternoon going through charts and mapping out the next destination while sipping fresh brew and getting the hang of the wheel. Personal favorites: The natural volcanic hot springs in both Cahuelmo & Porcelana (I have yet to see anyone else visiting when we go) A Must: "Asado al palo" - spit roasted meat of your choice on a beach of your choice (lamb recommended!) And always keep an eye out for the dolphins

Although they have pre-planned trips, they have a lot of flexibility on where to go and what to do. They have a cook on board, so meals can be adjusted to the taste of the travelers. Quality of the bathrooms & hot water availability is better to what is usually expected of these kids of boats.

“Awsom”
