The particulars of St. Andrews Bay

Saint Andrews Bay, more commonly abbreviated as St. Andrews Bay, indents the northern coastline of South Georgia just south of Mount Skittle. The name was established at least as far back as 1920, though St. Andrews Bay was probably first sighted by the British expedition under Captain James Cook in 1775.

St. Andrews Bay penguins, seals, and surroundings

St. Andrews Bay is best known for its huge breeding colony of king penguins, numbering about 150,000 pairs, the largest in South Georgia. But the beaches of St. Andrews Bay are also great for viewing fur seals, elephant seals, and mountainous snow-capped surroundings.
