Grand Jason - cruise landing The Jason Island group is a chain of remote islands off West Falkland. Grand Jason, as its name suggests, is the largest of the group. Cat and rat free, it is home to a large number of small birds as well as black-browed albatross, striated cara-cara, rockhopper, gentoo and magellanic penguins. The entire group of islands are either privately owned nature reserves or government owned National Nature reserves and there is no smoking permitted anywhere on the islands. Unpredictable weather and strong tidal currents make landings difficult.
