The English Narrows (or, English Passage; Angostura Inglesa, Spanish) is narrow 180 m wide section of the Messier Channel in the SW coast of Chile. It is 18 km long, from Isla Moat to Paso del Indio. The English Narrows are safe to navigate under the direction of a pilot when there are no strong winds. The tide runs up to 6 knots. Everyone is on deck as the ship wends its way between islands and channel markers. The waterway is home to Magellanic Diving Petrels, Steamer Ducks, and the rare endemic Chilean dolphin. This small dolphin is shy of ships and spends its time in constricted straits with heavy tidal rips such as the English Narrows.

The Messier Channel is located in Patagonia, Chile. It is an inside passage between Wellington Island (and other islands) and the continent, running 350 km N to S. It is a fjord to a depth of 1358 m, making it one of the deepest fjords in the world. Just north of English Narrows is the rusting wreck of the passenger/cargo steamer MV Capitan Leonidas, in the centre of the channel, stuck high on the Bajo Cotopaxi reef since 1968. (Apparently the captain hit a pinnacle rock on purpose in an attempt to scuttle the boat and claim insurance. He was found out and sent to prison.)

Just south of English Narrows is the mighty Pio XI Glacier, the longest glacier in the southern hemisphere outside Antarctica. The entire region is home to stunning landscape and wildlife, snow-capped mountains to 1300 m near the channel.
