Trans Mar Chilay

Ferry in The Lakes District

The most popular route for travelers is the 30-minute ferry between Pargua, on the mainland 62km southwest of Puerto Montt, and Chacao, a small town of little interest at the northeast corner of Isla Grande de Chiloé. The ferry departs every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day, and is alternately operated by Trans Mar Chilay and Cruz del Sur.

There is wi-fi available (if you're lucky!). Bus fares to/from the mainland include the half-hour ferry crossing.
