Narrative

La Expedición Antártica Francesa de 1908-1910, al mando del Dr. Jean B. Charcot, la denominó Ansedes Baleiniers ensenada de los balleneros porque en esa época era usada por los cazadores de ballenas noruegos y chilenos, que se dedicaban a su actividad con base en la isla Decepción. Los noruegos la llamaban New Sadefiord por su puerto de origen en Noruega. El nombre en uso es una traducción al castellano que se ha usado en las cartas chilenas desde 1947. Pequeña caleta encerrada entre la punta Fildes y la punta Penfold, en el lado E de puerto Foster, isla Decepción, islas Shetland del Sur.
