Named after King George III, King George Island is recognized as the largest of the South Shetland Islands. It is surrounded by three major bays, including Admiralty Bay, which is a protected area for seabird breeding colonies. The surface of King George Island is nearly all ice and glaciers, but a small portion of the land acts as permanent bases for nations such as Chile to conduct research. During the summer months, visitors will find the inhabitants typically associated with Antarctica: Weddell and Leopard seals, Gentoo and Chinstrap Penguins, and various other seabirds.
