Sea Kayaking Viña del Mar and Valparaiso Bay

From Valparaíso to Viña del Mar
 

Description

Requirements

Navigate in a sea kayak from Viña del Mar to Valparaiso will allow you to understand why this particular city was declared recently by Unesco WORLD HERITAGE.

A visit to Valparaiso is a sheer surprise: its typical
architecture, its winding narrow streets and the ranges of houses clinging on the surrounding hills in an urban landscape intermingled with all kind of vessels in the ever present bay.

Itinerary

We meet in Santiago at 9AM and after crossing the coastal range by way of tunnels and passing through the unique Curacaví farming valley and we start feeling the cool breeze of the Pacific Oceans, we take the road to Valparaíso overlooking the blue bay (weather permitting).

Before paddling we will have a safety talk and also a general seakayak practice about strokes and rescue procedures...and then start our navigation. We expect to return to Santiago aprox 8 PM.
