The channel is about 1,600 km long and 419 km across at its narrowest point, and reaches a depth of 3,292 m about 230 km off the coast of Mozambique. A warm current, the Mozambique Current, flows in a southward direction in the channel, leading into the Agulhas Current off the east coast of Southern Africa.
