Drake Strait is an intercontinental strait that connects the southern parts of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans (in the case of the Southern Ocean, it may fully or partially refer to it).

To the north of the strait is the southernmost point of South America — the Diego Ramirez Islands (Tierra del Fuego Archipelago) and Cape Horn, and on the opposite side - the South Shetland Islands (Antarctica).

It is the widest (of those with their own name) strait on Earth: at its narrowest part, its width is at least 820 km. It is also the deepest, with a depth of more than 5000 meters.
