Explorers Cove is a cove at the northwest head of New Harbour, Victoria Land, Antarctica, on the west side of McMurdo Sound, where the Taylor Valley hits the seashore. The name was applied by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names in 1976 in recognition of the large number of explorers that have worked in the vicinity of this cove.[1]
