Caleta Zorra (meaning "Bay of foxes" in Spanish) is an enclosed, half-moon shaped inlet on the Pacific coast of Chiloé Island in Los Lagos region, southern Chile. Lying north of Punta Pabellion, it is located among Punta Zorra and Punta Barranco.[1] The nearest residential area is the township of Puerto Carmen.[2]

Environment[edit]

Areas surrounding the cove are rich natural environments. Whales such as blue whales and fin whale swim just off the bay.[3] Possibly, coast-loving whales such as humpback whales or southern right whales occasionally take rests in the sheltered bay.
