Journey Through the Legendary Straits of Magellan

Until it was named in honor of famed Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan in the 1520s, the Straits of Magellan (or Strait of Magellan) had gone by many names, including Draco Cola (“Dragon’s Tail”) and Estrecho de Todos los Santos (“Strait of All Saints”). Nevertheless, five centuries later and one thing remains the same: This Azamara cruising passage is still “the most important natural passage between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.”

Located in southern Chile, this sea route separating the tip of South America and Tierra del Fuego is approximately 350 miles (570 kilometers) long and 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) in width. It’s home to majestic wildlife and stunning natural landscapes filled with fjords, glaciers, and waterfalls. And with changing climates, numerous islands, and narrow channels, it can also be a gorgeous, challenging stretch of water to navigate. Fortunately, with the expert maritime piloting of our captains, you can expect smooth sailing ahead on this Straits of Magellan cruise with Azamara!
