Getting from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales

We are planning a trip from Santiago and are going to bike from there to Puerto Montt. We were trying to find a ferry service or some way to get to Puerto Natales but all the options seem to be through that Navimag company and they are not taking passengers on this route. Does anyone know a solution or are there other options that we can't find online? Thanks!

Navimag announced a new fery Puerto Montt-Natales for this summer, in the next months pay attention to navimag.cl

other options, do Carretera Austral , a 1200 km very scenic and beautiful road, crossing by Villa Ohiggins to Chalten (Arg.) and re enter tro Chile near Torres del Paine,or, google biking Carretera Austral; a bus P. Montt-P.Arenas (30 hours ride, three lines) or a flight

Remember that the ferry way is not stopped, only now there is a small ferry with no web reservation, but you can buy on the spot, the priority is given for truck drivers

Fernando, do you think there would be a possibility to negotiate a trip with a southbound ship captain in Puerto Montt ant thus reach Puerto Natales? I know it's possible in some parts of the world, but is it something I can think of when in PM ?

You can buy ticket at Navimag office near the port at Puerto Montt. Even if there is no regular ferry there is cargo ferry. They sell tickets to passengers for USD 315 all inclusive.
