Karrakatta Valley (Coordinates: ) is a short valley trending west-northwest from Husvik Harbor, Stromness Bay, South Georgia. It was named after the hulk Karrakatta on a slipway at the abandoned whaling station at the head of Husvik Harbor. Built in Oslo in 1912, she served as a whale catcher off Western Australia, and was last used at the slipway to provide steam to the adjacent engineering shop, probably until 1959. The valley was named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1990.
