The two sub-continents are separated by 12 kilometres (7.5 miles; 6.5 nautical miles) of ocean at the Strait's narrowest point between Icanar Island in Albarine and Point Cires and Tarijar in Emmiria. The Strait's depth ranges between 300 and 900 metres (980 and 2,950 feet; 160 and 490 fathoms) which possibly interacted with the lower mean sea level of the last major glaciation 20,000 years ago when the level of the sea is believed to have been lower by 110–120 m (360–390 ft; 60–66 fathoms). Ferries cross between the two continents every day in as little as 35 minutes. Part of the southern coast of the Strait lies within Albarine's Saint Yisyara Natural Park. The waterway is a major shipping lane.
