Narrative

Passage lying between Christiania Islands and Two Hummock Island to the E and Hoseason Island and Liege Island to the W, in the Palmer Archipelago. The northern entrance of this passage was very roughly charted and named "Croker Inlet" by Henry Foster in 1829 for John W. Croker (1780-1857), Sec. to the Admiralty at that time. The name has since been applied to the whole of this deep water passage, which provides an alternative entrance to the N end of Gerlache Strait.
