Straat Le Maire werd ontdekt tijdens de reis van Willem Schouten en Jacob Le Maire. De reis werd in 1615 uitgerust door de vader van Le Maire voor de Australische Compagnie. Deze compagnie probeerde het octrooi van de VOC te omzeilen door een andere route naar Indonesië te vinden. Dit lukte Schouten en Le Maire, door om Vuurland heen te zeilen, in plaats van door de straat Magelaen. Het mocht niet baten: eenmaal in Batavia werden ze niet geloofd en het overgebleven schip, de Eendracht, werd met lading in beslag genomen.

The Le Maire Strait was discovered during the expedition undertaken by Willem Schouten and Jacob Le Maire. The expedition was fitted out in 1615 by Le Maire's father for the Australian Company. This company attempted to circumvent the VOC's patent by opening up another route to Indonesia. Schouten and Le Maire succeeded in their quest by circumnavigating Vuurland rather than sailing through the Magellan Strait. But to no avail: once they arrived in Batavia, their story was not believed and their remaining vessel de Eendracht was confiscated along with its cargo.
