Puerto Gaviota is a small cove used by artisanal fishermen, located on Isla Magdalena, a 3-hour boat ride from Puerto Cisnes. Its story began in the latter part of the 1980s, when the hake boom spurred the arrival of new inhabitants to the area. Today, the various parts of the town are connected by wooden boardwalks, and community members and visitors alike enjoy the gorgeous views of Isla San Andrés and the Moraleda Channel.
Each February, Puerto Gaviota’s Tourism Board organizes a festival called «Rescuing our Fishing Traditions.» The festival lasts 3 days, and attendees can take part in various aspects of hake and conger eel fishing while enjoying the natural beauty of the island, including its rugged landscapes, deep gorges, and scattered coastline.
