Welcome to Waterboat Point

Chile’s air force built Presidente Gabriel González Videla Station (www.inach.cl) in 1951 amid a large gentoo rookery that covers almost the entire area, including the site of Bagshawe's and Lester’s hut. Occupied now only intermittently in the summer, the station is named for the Chilean president who, in 1948, became the first head of state to visit Antarctica – with an entourage of 140 that included his wife and daughters. Station members used to keep pigs, sheep and chickens, all of which roamed freely.
