Petrel Cove

Antarctica’s Petrel Cove is located at the west side of Dundee Island, near the Argentine Petrel Station, which was completed in 1952. At Petrel Cove you might see (not too surprisingly) petrels feeding just along the coast, and in the late season, Antarctic fur seals and elephant seals.
