Drake Passage

Sandwiched between the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica and South America's Cape Horn, the Drake Passage is said to be the roughest sea passage in the world. Stretching for 800 kilometres in width, this renowned passage is the point where the Pacific, Atlantic and Southern seas meet to create an area known for its crashing mix of high winds and tumultuous waters. This two-day crossing brings its own rewards, with visitors enjoying an exhilarating cruise on an Antarctic expedition vessel and spotting an array of wildlife in the icy waters, including dolphins, whales, and seabirds such as petrels, albatrosses and penguins.
