Sea Kayaking is a popular activity in Isla Chiloé . For instance, the Castro Fjord and Chauques islands are great locations to paddle out to and see how some natives live according to tradition, without motors or electricity, off the fruits of the earth. The wilderness is also very surreal in a kayak as the forests and rocks tower over kayakers and the water shimmers lethargically.  

Boating is another option for inter-island hopping. This is obviously a far less strenuous activity than Kayaking while providing a similar affect: immersion and exploration into nature, seeing native communities on various island shores, and stopping and relaxing for a picnic on a beach. Cruises tend to follow the island's northern and eastern coast, visiting Spanish forts and various fishing villages along the way. Speaking of fishing villages, the natives in Chiloé Island have a very strong fishing culture. That being said, they are not opposed to visitors hopping in and trying their luck in the various forest streams and even in the open sea. For visitors, fishing can be an ultimate relaxing activity.

Wildlife aficionados enjoy Chiloé for its plethora of wildlife and wilderness. Its national park is teeming with different types of animals like foxes, birds, pygmy deer and thousands of other creatures. Visitors can hike or trek through the forests and the mountains and while being careful not to disturb the natural environment, can observe the wildlife as it has existed for thousands of years on this island, largely untouched and unfettered. Chiloé really displays nature in some of its purest forms. For this, nature lovers will travel far and wide. Also, the fact that it is much less traveled by locals and visitors alike is additionally appealing.
