Charlotte Bay - Antarctica Highlights:
Charlotte Bay hut, Leopard Seals, Crabeater Seals and Minke Whales.
Charlotte Bay is located on the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula between Brabant Island and the Danco Coast. There is an old Falkland Islands Dependency Survey (later British Antarctic Survey) hut here at Portal Point. In the 1956-57 season, six men from a British expedition and their dogs were forced to stay in the hut for a period of about three months without knowing their fate, and with diminishing food supplies. The Bay was discovered by de Gerlache in the 1897-99 Belgica expedition and named after the fiancee of Gerlache's executive officer Georges Lecointe.

This area of beautiful landscapes offers zodiac cruising among icebergs, and encounters with Leopard Seals, Crabeater Seals and Minke Whales.

There are no cruises currently listed for this port of call.
