Chañaral Island Marine Reserve and the continental sea shore are representative of the unique ecosystem of the Humboldt current, an ecosystem of great importance for all of South Pacific. In its waters you will find great amounts of krill, dolphins of different species, such as the bottle nose, monk and killer whale. There are also majestic whales, including the fin whale, humpback whale, and the most incredible of all, the blue whale – the biggest mammal of the world sharing the area with smaller mammal of the world, the sea otter, or the “chinchimen”. The biological chain of the Marine Reserve is complete, we are in front of a time machine which shows us how the shores of Chile must have been many years ago.
