Photographer's Note

At least as well known for its grapes for his channel ...

The Corinth Canal is an artificial waterway dug across the Isthmus of Corinth in Greece, connecting the Gulf of Corinth, in the Ionian Sea to the west, the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea, east. The Corinth Canal is therefore the Peloponnese an island, since pierces right through the isthmus connecting the peninsula to the rest of Greece. The canal is 6,343 m long and 21 m wide. The trench has a maximum depth of 52 m for mooring of 8 meters. It avoids vessels less than 10 000 tonnes and 8 meters draft a long detour of 400 km around the peninsula.
It is currently used mainly by tourist vessels. About 11,000 ships use this route every year.
