Gently sloping valley, filled with ice, lying E of Suspiros Bay in the W part of Joinville Island. Surveyed by the FIDS in 1953-54. The Balaena (Alexander Fairweather, master) was one of the Dundee whaling ships that visited the Joinville Island group in 1892-93. The name was applied in 1956 by the UK-APC and derives from association with Cape Kinnes 4 mi to the SW; Robert Kinnes was the Dundee shipowner and merchant who equipped these ships for their Antarctic voyage.
