Cruising West Point

Cruise to West Point

West Point Island is one of the Falkland Islands, lying west of West Falkland, from which it is separated by the Wooly Cut channel. It has an area of slightly less than 15 kmĀ² and is run as a sheep farm. The highest point on the island is Mount Misery at 369 metres, while a settlement and airstrip lie in the north east. Wildlife on West Point includes rockhopper penguins, black-browed albatrosses and Commerson's dolphins. The island was originally known as Albatross Island and was a popular site for slaughtering seals and penguins for oil.
