boat travel

by jonnyg717

Hi,
Is it possible to take a boat from Iquique to Antofagasta?

I know that Iquique has a big fishing fleet and freight port, also cruise ships dock there. But I do not know about "normal" ships cruising up and down the coast.

If nobody knows I can ask a friend in Chile who has his own fishing boat and lives in Antofagasta and Arica. He would know this almost certainly.

Hey thanks!

We're planning on flying into Arica in the next six months,and making our way south. Having been down the coast by bus, I'm looking for alternatives...I look forward to hearing more.

Ok, I will email my friend and hope he will answer soon.

SALITRERA HUMBERSTONE

by Roalera26

Fue establecida en 1872 por la Peruvian Nitrate Company con el nombre de La Palma, en conmemoración de la batalla librada en la localidad del mismo nombre, cerca de Lima en 1855.

Pasó por diferentes dueños, hasta que en 1932, bajo el poder de la Compañía Gibbs sufrió la primera paralización de sus actividades. Luego fue adquirida por la Compañía Salitrera de Tarapacá y Antofagasta (COSATAN), siendo sometida el año 1934 a una reestructuración y rebautizada con su nombre actual en recuerdo al "padre del salitre". Ese año se construyó el campamento y posteriormente la iglesia, el mercado, el hotel, el teatro, el hospital, la escuela, la piscina y las casas para los jefes, empleados y obreros.

El 17 de enero de 2002, Humberstone, junto a la oficina salitrera Santa Laura, fue adjudicada por la Corporación del Museo del Salitre, entidad que pretende instituir en ambos lugares un museo abierto destinado al recuerdo y preservación de los vestigios de nuestro pasado salitrero.

"Fun in el Norte Grande"

Iquique is one of the most interesting spots in Northern Chile. It is a city with a long and rich culture and history. But in addition, it is surrounded by natural beauty on all sides. La Cavancha is the best known beach area and offers a wide sandy area and warmer waters than found in most parts of the Chilean Pacific.To the East of the city are innumerable nature spots in the Atacama Desert. The city also boasts excellent hotels, restaurants and a casino. The prices at even the most expensive hotels are very reasonable.
