Steeple Jason - cruise landing Icon for Steeple Jason - cruise landing

The Jason Island group is a chain of remote islands off West Falkland. Steeple Jason, which rises sharply from the sea, is undoubtedly one of the most dramatic islands in the archipelago. Home to the world’s largest black-browed albatross colony, the area is of significant importance to conservationists. Large numbers of Striated caracara, Falkland Skuas and Southern Giatn Petrels also breed here. 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.
