Corinth Canal. Ship passing through the Corinth Canal, Greece. This canal cuts through the Isthmus of Corinth, a narrow ridge of land that, until the canal was built, separated the Gulf of Corinth from the Saronic Gulf, in the Aegean Sea. It is 6.3 kilometres long, and saves ships the 400 kilometre journey around the Peloponnese peninsula. The canal was constructed between 1881 and 1893.
