Narrative

La Expedición Británica cazadora de focas de 1820-1822, al mando del capitán George Powell, en la nave foquera "Dove", hizo un mapa de las islas Shetland del Sur, publicado en 1822, en el que esta bahía figura como Admiralty Bay. El nombre actual, que ha figurado en las cartas chilenas desde 1947, es una traducción de este topónimo al castellano. Bahía de forma irregular que mide 4 millas de ancho en su boca por 9 millas de saco. Se forma en la costa S de la isla Rey Jorge, islas Shetland del Sur.
