The Strait of Magellan is a passage way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. It is just south of mainland South America and goes through Argentina and Chile. For a long time the two countries argued over which one of them owned the land around it. Chile now owns it. The strait is named after Ferdinand Magellan. It is very foggy and stormy.
