The Lemaire Channel is flanked by the Antarctic Peninsula on one side and Booth Island on the other. So photogenic is the channel that it is
sometimes called "Kodak Gap". At the northern end of the Lemaire Channel are a pair of tall, rounded snow-capped peaks known as
Una's Tits. The channel was first navigated by Belgian explorer de Gerlach during his
1898 expedition aboard Belgica. It was somehow
named after another Belgian explorer -- Charles Lemaire, who explored parts of the Congo.
