Narrative

Su nombre recuerda a Svend Foyn, ballenero noruego de Tonsberg, inventor del arpón explosivo. Sobre la costa oriental de la isla Lientur, más o menos a un tercio de su extremo sur, se abre este puerto, que mide 2,5 cables de ancho en su boca por 4 cables de saco orientado al WNW. El puerto es de profundidad moderada y de fondo algo irregular, pero limpio. Los antiguos balleneros conocían este puerto y lo visitaban con frecuencia.
