What type of clothing should one take?

Weather in Patagonia during summer is benign but winterly like periods can occur. In these occasions it is wind and rain what one has to take cover from rather than cold. We recommend the layered approach to adapt to the changing climate of Patagonia.

Does “Noctilca” travel at night?

If possible No! It is a leisure cruise, and sleeping while cruising is not as comfortable (dinning either) Sometimes if in need we will do some night sailing, especially if a full moon appears on a calm night. In a normal day “Noctiluca” will travel 6 hours aprox. We want you to unwind and being on a hurry is not the way to do it.

“Noctiluca” is outfitted with all the basic tackle requirements; rods, reels, bait, Jigs, flies as well as waders (boots not included). But it is always better to enquire extra necessities in terms of special sizes and requirement of special lines or rods.

Do we have a guide?

There is a guide aboard “Noctiluca” who is also crew while cruising. He speaks fluent English and is a lot of fun to be around. If on a fly-fishing expedition two anglers share a guide. Remember you are only 6 to 8 guests with a crew of five so someone will be taking care of you at all times.
