Kayaking in Chile

I'm planning a trip to S. America for next fall (2009). Does anyone have any contacts in Chile or Argentina as far as shops or kayak schools? I'm looking to teach some lessons or guide a little.

If you are planning to go further south to Futaleufu, talk to Aren Rane. He lives on the Azul right above the Terminator section. His website is
not a lot of info right now but has been guiding on the Futa for about 12 years. His camp and amenities are first rate. Awesome people too. They have a bunch of boats. Guiding may not be totally out of the question but you had better be SOLID. No swimming on the FUTA. Argentina is a little different. Bariloche is a good starting point for adventure but you'll need a vehicle. Jeff Moore from Montana is a contact I know. There is little chance you can work in ARGA because they do not have a work agreement with the U.S. like Chile' does. you can pm me if you want to hear more.

paddling in Chile January 2009

I own a Subaru in Chile and will be down there January 2009 for a 4-5 paddling week road trip. Looking for partners in crime, heading north to south, ending with the Futa and Rio Baker. Give a shout if interested. Conan 970 349-0439
