Lighthouse in the Beagle Channel, Argentina, South America. MORE INFO The Beagle Channel was named after the ship HMS Beagle during its first hydrographic survey of the coasts of the southern part of South America which lasted from 1826 to 1830. Although it is navigable by large ships, there are safer waters to the south (Drake Passage) and to the north (Strait of Magellan). The biggest settlement on the channel is Ushuaia in Argentina followed by Puerto Williams in Chile, two of the southernmost settlements of the world.
