Ocean Ports of Call

Beagle Channel - Chile Highlights:
Darwin Mountain Range, glaciers, D`Aggostini National Park
The Beagle Channel is surrounded by the peaks of the Darwin Mountain Range and the breathtaking view of the D`Aggostini National Park. Named after HMS Beagle, the British ship that first surveyed it during its circumnavigation of the world (1831 to 1836), the Beagle Channel is a strait in Tierra del Fuego, near the southern tip of South America. The strait separates the main island of Tierra del Fuego from the southernmost islands in the archipelago and provides a sheltered passage from Pacific to Atlantic Oceans. The western part of the channel is in Chile, but the eastern part of the channel forms a boundary between Argentina to the north and Chile to the south. On the north shore of the channel is the port of Ushuaia, the capital of the Argentinian part of Tierra del Fuego.

The channel is about 240 km (150 miles) long and between 5 and 13 km (3 and 8 miles) wide and as you sail through the north-western branch, known as "Glacier Avenue" you will see glaciers such as Italia, Holanda, Alemania, Francia and Romanche among others.

There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port. Click the month or cruise line logo you are interested in to see details of the cruises.
