Narrative

Descubierta por un destacamento al mando de J. Gunnar Andersson, de la Expedición Antártica Sueca de 1901-1904, al mando del comandante Otto Nordenskjöld, llamada así por el teniente Samuel A. Duse, hidrógrafo de la expedición. Bahía que penetra la costa SE de la península Luis Felipe, se abre entre la punta Vista y el cabo Burn, extremo SW de la península Tabarín. La costa SW de la bahía tiene una longitud de 4 millas, una serie de contrafuertes de piedra de 150 metros de altura, separados por angostos glaciares de superficie muy quebrada, espaldeados por una montaña cubierta de nieve, de cima redondeada, con 600 metros de altura. La costa N se alza en suave pendiente.
