Narrative

Descubierta pero no completamente definida por la Expedición Antártica Alemana de 1873-1874, al mando del comandante Eduard Dallmann, quien la denominó Hamburg, por el puerto de Alemania de donde partió la expedición. La bahía fue más tarde cartografiada con exactitud por la Expedición Antártica Francesa de 1903-1905, al mando del Dr. Jean B. Charcot. Se abre esta bahía en la costa NW de isla Anvers a 6 millas al SW de punta Giard y a 15 millas al NE del cabo Alberto de Mónaco en el archipiélago de Palmer.
