Narrative

La Expedición Antártica Chilena de 1947-1948, al mando del capitán de fragata Ernesto González Navarrete, que levantó completamente esta zona, le dio el nombre de puerto Fragata Covadonga, por uno de sus buques expedicionarios, figurando en cartas chilenas de 1948 con ese nombre y también como bahía Covadonga. En 1951, para evitar el nombre compuesto, se dejó en puerto Covadonga. Desde 1961 se está usando en su forma actual, rada Covadonga, que da una idea mejor de su naturaleza. Rada que se forma entre el cabo Legoupil, la península Schmidt y la isla Kopaitic, en la costa occidental de la península Tierra de O'Higgins.
