Entry Procedures for Quintero , Chile

Regardless of what you may have heard to the contrary, a Visa is not required ahead of arrival. Likewise, a cruising permit is not needed to cruise the coast of Chile . All procedures are straightforward. According to Chilean regulations concerning the legal stay and use of pleasure vessels in Chile, all boats must have a Temporary Importation Permit ( Permiso de Importación Temporal) issued by the Customs Department.

Please note that the harbor entrance is clear and not buoyed, except for the “monoboya” of the Oil Company. There are not currents in the area. It is REQUIRED to announce to the Quintero Radio, Channel 16, your arrival. But, not to worry, just approach to the Bahía of Quintero call on VHF 16 for “Quintero Radio”. After that you can call “Club de Yates de Quintero” on VHF 16 and Maria Elena will arrange to come out and guide you in on the mooring. She can send a boat to help or guide you. (No charge, but a tip is appreciated.)

Please note that the Bahia has a lot of moored fisherman boats so approach carefully from the North in order to avoid the boats and lines. Please also be on the lookout for fishermen that work in the bay. The Yacht Club has 24 Hrs. marine services and we could help you with the clearance at the Capitanía de Puerto.

Water

City clear water is available at the dock.

Diesel/Gasoline

Diesel can be delivered to your boat from the Copec station to the malecon of the Club.

Local amenities

The area around the Club has all kinds of services such as a hardware store, laundromat, supermarket, marine services, hotels, shops, beach, restaurants, bars, dive shop, laundry, internet, ice cream shop and a church. You can get by bus to Valparaiso in one hour.

Moorings

Club de Yates de Quintero has 50 moorings located in the South of the bay which is very well protected from weather. Clients have access to the dinghy dock, bathrooms, showers and internet.
