Going ashore in San Antonio Este, Argentina

The small port of San Antonio Este is situated in the Gulf of San Matias, very close to the northern limit of Patagonia and belongs to the Province of Rio Negro, Argentina. It is one of the smallest ports you will ever see and it can accommodate only one vessel at a time (and few small fishing vessels).The port lacks shore cranes and for this reason unloading and loading of the vessel are operated with vessel’s cranes – which can take a longer time than in the case of big port gantries.
