    View of Drake Passage, Antarctica

    Drake Passage is the body of water between the southern tip of South America at Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica.

Conditions can change instantly in the Drake Passage, owing to strong winds, large waves, strong currents, and icebergs: hence notorious as ‘sailors’ graveyard.’ Until the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914 large ships had to sail this passage.
