​The Golfo del Corcovado flowing between the mainland of Chile and Chiloé Island has been a famous tourist destination among wildlife lovers since the recent revelation of its annual marine visitors—blue whales. From December to April the gulf appears to teem​ with these lovely sea mammals feasting on the krill found in abundance in these waters. It is difficult to say for how long they have been visiting the gulf before the discovery but today anyone willing may go on a whale watching trip during the Chilean summer months.
