The straits are located between two rocky mountains. The mountains are covered with moss and dirt. Due to the fast pace of the current, white foam can be seen on top of the water.
The straits have appeared in three episodes of The Backyardigans. They are first seen in "Save the Day" from season two. They can also be seen in a painting in "Who Goes There?" from season three and "Follow the Feather" from season four.
