Eduardo has expertise in many areas of outdoor recreation, including stand up
paddle, surf, hiking, river navigation and general ocean recreation. He has owned
and operated his own business, ViveSUP, out of Puerto Varas, Chile, for the past 7
years and has continued to refine and develop the business during this time in
Oregon.Before that, he worked as a tour guide, guiding groups of different sizes on
tours of varying levels of difficulty, destinations and length. In addition, he has been
developing different tours to serve a diverse population and cater to individual
needs. He is adept at working in many different environments and with all kinds of
Eduardo’s specialty is customer service, and he always goes out of his way to make
people feel comfortable while ensuring they get the best out of their tour
experience. He excels at handling logistic situations in order to make tours flow
smoothly and seem effortless to clients. For example, while he was guiding a group
of foreigners along the Puelo river in Chile, the group encountered a situation where
the roads were inaccessible due to flooding, and the equipment couldn’t be
transported by utility truck as originally plan. Eduardo was able to find a local
farmer with an ox cart to get the groups equipment to the next put in point and
continue to the trip smoothly. These are the kinds of skills that Eduardo would bring
as a guide and tour developer to your adventure.

Trip advisor review from Jamie M on North Patagonia SUP Trip:
“Excellent local operator”
I came to Chile specifically to partake in a standup Paddleboard expedition
organized by this operator into the Puelo river valley. Subsequently I went on
paddles on the Maullin river and Hidden Lagoon at Lagos Llanquihue. I can't say
enough good things about owner Eduardo Hernandez in terms of his positive,
solicitous attitude and fun loving spirit. Any time spent out and about on his trips is
well worth it.

Trip advisor review from Michelle S
“The best tour (and tour guide) in Puerto Varas!!!”
I've never been SUP before but was really interested in trying it. After meeting Edwardo at
the office and discussing some of the amazing trips he offers we decided to do the hidden
lagoon tour. We had to go in the early morning and Edwardo happily accommodated us. He
picked us up from our accommodation in the morning and we had over 2 hours on the water.
The lagoon is quiet and very beautiful with forest all around. The only sounds are from the
birds which you can see up close without disturbing! Edwardo was a lovely guide, spoke
perfect english and my husband and I were the only people in the tour. If you're interested in
any of his tours or just doing something fun go down and have a chat with him, he's always
happy to help!!

Trip advisor review from blubda1982:
“Great day with SUP”
It was our first time doing it, and it was a really great and amazing day. If you are in
Puerto Varas, don't miss to go there and do the day trip.
We have been in Maullín on the river and then trying to keep on the board in the sea
with huge waves. It was really funny and we will remember this day forever!
Eduardo organized everything and we enjoyed the whole day. Also we had the
chance to go to Carelmapu for the celebration "de la virgen del candelabro".
So go there!! The staff is very friendly and well organized.
