Rates

Anyone know how much it costs to bring a moto across? It is 32,000 pesos for a "car or similar", but I did not see a rate specifically for bikes.

I took the ferry Porvenir to Punta Aranas last December. It was about 20 bucks in Chilean currency for me and the bike. Cash only. I will say the ferry you don't want to miss is the 4 1/2 day one going up the inside passage from Puerto Natalas to Puerto Montt.. That was about $650 for me and the bike, food included. That was for a bunk in a cabin which had other bunks which were empty. The fares are lower in the winter. Bring a book to read they don't have WIFI, but the views are unforgettable. Dave

I used it about a month ago - it's $Chilean 10,000. There's a new boat now which only takes 2 1/4 hours rather than the 3 3/4 that the dear old Melinka used to.

Regards, Mick
