Sam's Exotic Travels to Danco Island, Antarctica

Danco Island or Isla Dedo is an island off Antarctica, 1 mile (1.6 km) long lying in the southern part of Errera Channel, off the west coast of Graham Land. Danco Island is located at 6444S 6237W. Danco Island was charted by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition under Adrien de Gerlache, 1897-1899. Danco Island was surveyed by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) from the Norsel in 1955, and named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) for Emile Danco (1869-1898), Belgian geophysicist and member of the Belgian Antarctic Expedition, who died on board the Belgica in the Antarctic.
