Chile and Rio Baker info

Let's see. I am trying to put together a boating/surfing trip to Chile in February. I have a friend who will be working on the Futa, so I should have my time there covered. I am looking for any info on running the Baker. I was given some names and contacts and have begun exploring those options. I am wondering if anyone on here has run the Baker? I'm also wondering if there is someone who rents boats down there? That's my first concern. If I find anything, I'll figure out the shuttles later.

I know it's a long shot, but thanks for any info!

I spent some time on the Baker in 09. About the boat, I seriously doubt you will be able to find one anywhere south of the Futa so I would plan on looking to rent/buy one around there. What other info are you looking for? Logistics (finding the river, shuttle) are as easy as it gets minus the long dusty drive from the Futa. The whitewater is fairly straight-forward, but very, very big and consequential which I am sure you know. It's probably the best big water run I have ever done, in an amazingly beautiful location. We did some other runs around there that I would reccomend doing to break up the drive and keep things interesting. I wish I was there now...Is this ethan johnson asking the questions? Send me a message or something.
