Strait of Magellan

Considered by knowledgeable travelers as one of the most breathtaking waterways in the world, the Strait of Magellan is arguably the most important natural passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The inland passage is protected from the region's almost continuous storms, and if it's not too foggy, you'll get a spectacular view of Tierra del Fuego to your south and the tip of South America to the north.

The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

During the summer, the Strait of Magellan has been a premier observation post to watch the acrobatic feats of the colossal humpback whales. You'll be awed and amazed as these leviathans jump, pirouette and frolic as they make their way to the Antarctic. And all through the year the cold waters of the strait attract countless species of dolphins, killer whales, and colonies of sea wolves and sea elephants.
