This cove, about 12n miles northward of Comodoro Rivadavia, is a terminal for loading crude oil. In the SW of Caleta Córdova, close in shore, there is a breakwater forming a small harbor. There are two short concrete landing stages, one for use at HW, and the other, covered at half tide, only available at LW. Small fishing vessels discharge their catch here, and anchor and shelter. Launches also use there landing stages for taking crew to/from shore and for loading small quantities of provisions. There is also a small jetty in the harbour.
