Water sports

Getting into the water around Robinson Crusoe is like slipping into a great abyss: this idiosyncratic ecosystem hosts world-class scuba diving. Moray eels, flounder, lobsters and enormous schools of yellowtail troll the clear waters, but the biggest attraction is the playful Juan Fernández fur seal (Arctocephalus philippii). You can also swim, snorkel, kayak or SUP in Bahía Cumberland when the seas are calm.


Head up into the hills for superb hiking in Parque Nacional Archipiélago Juan Fernández , which encompasses the entire island.
