English: Whalers Bay is a small bay entered between Fildes Point and Penfold Point at the east side of Port Foster, Deception Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The bay was so named by the French Antarctic Expedition, 1908-10, under Charcot, because of its use at that time by whalers.
Norsk bokmål: Whalers Bay er en bukt på Deceptionøya i øygruppen Sør-Shetlandsøyene. Bukten var havn for flytende hvalkokerier i første del av 1900-tallet, og fra 1912 til 1931 drev hvalfangstselskapet A/S Hektor fra Tønsberg en landstasjon her.
