Narrative

Fue descubierta por una partida al mando del Dr. J. Gunnar Andersson de la Swed AE, 1901-1904, quienes invernaron en bahía Hope en 1903. Fue denominada así en 1945 por FIDS debido a que ellos, al igual que los del Swed AE, establecieron un campamento en la playa sur de esta caleta. Pequeña caleta situada al E de bahía Hope, se abre hacia el N entre la punta Seal y los islotes Grunden, en el extremo NE de la península Tierra de O'Higgins.
