Whalers Bay

Region: Antarctica

Destinations: South Shetland Islands

The history of Whalers Bay

​A Norwegian whaling company rendered oil out of carcasses that were left by whaling ships that were moored in the bay. Wooden water boats, derelict houses and bleached whale bones remind us of a not so peaceful period in Antarctic history.
