Cruises from Beagle Channel
The Beagle Channel, named after Charles Darwin’s exploration ship, runs for 240km from Isla Nueva in the east, to the Darwin Sound in the west. At its widest point, the Channel measures 5km across. The strait separates Argentina’s Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, to the north, from remote Chilean islands like Nueva, Picton and Navarino to the south of the channel. At the western end of the channel it splits into two branches that encircle Isla Gordon.
When passing Isla Navarino, one appreciates that it is the home of Puerto Williams, the southernmost city in the world.
