West Point Island - Falkland Islands

West Point (originally known as Albatross Island) is one of the Falkland Islands, lying west of West Falkland in the Falkland Islands. With a more rugged lifestyle than the military school of the same name, this small island has a stark beauty. Soaring tufts of tussock grass - some nearly six feet tall provide a sheltering habitat for rockhopper and Magellanic penguins and a large black-browed albatross colony built in a natural amphitheatre overlooking the sea. Explore Devil’s Nose and Mount Ararat, where you can spot black-browed albatross and rock hopper penguins. You may even see Commerson’s dolphins (also known as skunk or panda dolphins) playing in the surf. The following 17 cruises call at West Point Island.
