Narrative

Descubierto por la Expedición Antártica Francesa de 1908-1910, al mando de Charcot, quien lo llamó Fjord Bourgeois por el apellido del coronel Joseph E. Bourgeois, director del Servicio Geográfico del Ejército de Francia. El contorno de este seno fue delineado más exactamente en 1936 por la BGLE, al mando de Rymill, y por el FIDS en 1948-1950. Desde 1962 se emplea seno en vez de fiordo. Seno que se abre entre la isla Pourquoi-Pas y la isla Herradura, en el lado NE de la bahía Margarita. Sus aguas se extienden hacia el NE por 30 millas, hasta alcanzar el pie de las montañas que forman la meseta continental.
