Valdivia to Mocha
24th In the evening came to an anchor under the lee of the island of Mocha: we had an unusual spectacle in seeing five ships under sail at once. They are Whalers cruizing for fish.

Captain Fitzroy’s Journal:
Late on the 24th we anchored at Mocha, and the following week was occupied in surveying its shores and the space between them and the mainland.
