The  Beagle  finally headed south again in December 1833, passing Port Desire and Port  St. Julian on its way through the Straits of Magellan to where the hostage Fuegians had  been dropped off months before. There they found that all the new habits taught the  Fuegians in England had worn off: they were back to living as they had before. Then,  once again, the  Beagle  returned to the Falklands and Montevideo for another survey of  the coast. Darwin headed inland towards the Andes with a group of men and supplies,  but provisions ran low and they were forced to turn back before reaching them.  Fortunately Darwin knew he would have a chance to reach them from the other side  when the  Beagle  went to Chile. They finally made it around the Horn and arrived at the island of Chiloé, off the west  coast of southern South America, on June 6, 1834. From there they went to Valparaiso
