Guest reviews

“Highly professional, competent, humourous and great hosts. Awesome scenery, huge diversity of animal and plant life. No development, no people, just you and nature”

Lorraine and Richard

“I really enjoyed the 'learning' aspect of this trip, ie. environmental issues, tides, glaciation, wave formation, bioluminescence, birds, geology. I felt safe, welcomed, never judged, respected and happy. This has been a fantastic trip all 'round. Thank you!”

Sheila, Collingwood, ON, Canada

Dear Spirit of the West Folks,

"Loved it all! The ranch was a super day and being able to hang on the bridge, and walking and beach combing and EVERYTHING! This SoW trip was a once-in-a-lifetime dream holiday. I'd tell everyone with a sense of adventure that they HAVE to try it, but a well-kept secret makes it that much more enjoyable for years to come. Unforgettable. "

Jennie, Vancouver, BC, Canada

“Thanks for all the emails and details before we left. Your willingness to answer all our questions... all of it was much appreciated!! It was great having English-speaking guides to help look after all the logistics and translate. Great introduction to Chile! [Internal flights were] excellent all the details were taken care of, we did not have to worry about a thing. My highlight was San Rafael. Both the first day on the boat and the next day in the kayaks. It was a truly awesome trip. We were so lucky with the weather and got to see so many wonderful things each day... bioluminescence, sea lions, leopard seals, birds, dolphins, penguins, sea stars etc. etc. etc. You were all great and really complimented one another well. You have such great personalities... always putting your guests' needs before your own and doing everything possible to make sure everyone had a great time. You rocked!! Thanks so much and we will keep spreading the word!”

Lorraine, Vancouver, BC, Canada

"The glacier was spectacular! We have been to Chile several times, and this trip exposed us to many new and interesting places. We would definitely recommend this trip.”

John and Lani, Quincy, IL, USA

“It was an excellent trip, made even better by the great guides. I was not sure I would enjoy this trip, but it was very well organized and the location was spectacular. Initially I thought it was expensive, but on reflection it was worth every penny. Everyone should do it."

“The beach on Inca Island (Robin's) was a highlight for me. Beach combing, BBQ, etc. The trail to the bone beach [on Isla Kent] and hot springs were great too. Melinka was a nice touch. Spirit of the West goes South was a hit all 'round!"”

Lynn, Collingwood, ON, Canada

"[Highlights were] kayaking near the shore small islands calm water was more enjoyable. Loved seeing the whales, dolphins, etc. The hot springs are a must! Enjoyed seeing small local villages loved the small hikes on the beach gives people a break from the boats. An experience to be treasured forever, 'wine, water and whales'.”

Blair, Collingwood, ON, Canada

“All info and logistics were bang on. An absolute thrill to travel with SoW. All details dealt with. Guide knowledge wide and varied. Ultra friendly. Don't want to leave! [Highlights were] chances for extra paddling, jaiba (crab) feast on aft deck, thermal beach, cordero (lamb) on beach, and Isla Kent. An incredible blending of wild Patagonia and the warm comforts of home. SoW manages to capture them all. An incredible experience!”

Darrel, Scottsdale, AZ, USA

"[A highlight was] watching dolphins swim at the front of the boat. Relax and see Patagonia with knowledgeable Canadian guides.”

Joanna, Vancouver, BC, Canada
