Description (see definition): Small, bay-like body of water near the center of the Bay of Isles, South Georgia, whose limits are formed by the semi-circular arrangement of Crescent Island, Invisible Island, Hogs Mouth Rocks and Albatross Island. Its entrance, between Crescent Island and Albatross Island, faces northwest. The arrangement of the islands was first mapped in 1912-13 by Robert Cushman Murphy, American naturalist aboard the brig Daisy. The bay was surveyed by Discovery Investigations personnel in 1929-30, and presumably named by them for the Discovery Committee, sponsors of Discovery Investigations.
