Mikkelsen Harbor (63°54′S 60°47′W / 63.900°S 60.783°W / -63.900; -60.783Coordinates: 63°54′S 60°47′W / 63.900°S 60.783°W / -63.900; -60.783) is a small bay indenting the south side of Trinity Island between Skottsberg Point and Borge Point, in the Palmer Archipelago, Antarctica. It was discovered by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04. The origin of the name has not been ascertained, but it was apparently in common usage by 1913, at the time of the geologic reconnaissance by Scottish geologist David Ferguson in the whale-catcher Hanka.[1]
