Gerlache Strait

A famous body of water in the Antarctic Peninsula, The Gerlache Strait is a must see for many people visiting this part of Antarctica on board an Antarctic Cruise, due to its spiky blue icebergs, humpback whale spotting, snow and mountains. It can be found between Anvers Island and the Danco Coast and is usually visited en route to Neko Harbour or the Lemaire Channel where ships cross the Antarctic Circle at 66 degress.

The Gerlache Strait is named after the Belgian Adrien de Gerlache, who explored the Strait in 1898.
