Narrative

A bay, 1.5 mi wide, on the inner (west) side of Pampa Passage, indenting the east coast of Brabant Island in the Palmer Archipelago. Malpighi Glacier and Mackenzie Glacier flow into the bay. The feature was roughly mapped in 1898 by the BelgAE. Mapped in greater detail by Argentine expeditions from 1947-48 onward and included as part of "Bahia Pampa" (now Pampa Passage, q.v.). This bay was so named by UK-APC in 1986 in reference to the sea canoes of the British Joint Services Expedition that passed through the bay on a circumnavigation of Brabant Island in Feb. 1985.
