Almirantazgo Fjord


Almirantazgo Fjord, also known as Almirantazgo Sound (Seno Almirantazgo in Spanish), is a Chilean fjord cutting deeply into the Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego. The fjord is a southeastern projection of Canal Whiteside, which separates the just mentioned island from Dawson Island. It is located at Earth Info, earth-info.nga.mil webpage: [*]. and its south side branch out into several smaller fjords and bays, which significantly indent the north coastline of the Cordillera Darwin. Ainsworth Bay, one of those, is home to a colony of elephant seals. Azopardo River empties into the head of the fjord.
