Porvenir Harbor

porvenir harbor

The largest town on the island is Porvenir which lies at the head of an estuary. Further down the esturary is the port. The fishing boat above is typical of the many small boats we saw in Chile. The cuisine of Chile is almost non-existant but they are blessed with all kinds of fresh seafood which makes it a great place to visit if you like fish & chips.

The dolphin gull (Larus scoresbii) is not the common gull of the Chilean coastlilne, but with its black wings and bright red bill and feet it is well worth looking for.
