Ultima Esperanza Sound (Last Hope Sound) is an inlet stretching from the mouth of Eberhard Fjord to the outskirts of Monte Balmaceda. The inlet has the characteristics of a tidewater river and drains an extensive region. It receives the waters of almost all the rivers and lakes in the area of Torres del Paine National Park through the Serrano River.

Last Hope Sound along with Senoret Channel form a navigation route, which connects Puerto Natales with several protected areas of the region.

Cueva del Milodon Natural Monument is located in the vicinity of the small Eberhard fjord.
