Fortuna Bay is a bay 3 miles (5 km) long and 1 mile (1.6 km) wide, entered between Cape Best and Robertson Point, near Atherton Peak on the north coast of South Georgia. It was named after the Fortuna, one of the ships of the Norwegian–Argentine whaling expedition under C.A. Larsen which participated in establishing the first permanent whaling station at Grytviken, South Georgia, in 1904–05.
