Description (see definition): Bay about 8 mi wide between Cape Ducorps and Cape Legoupil, along the N coast of Trinity Peninsula. A French expedition under Captain Jules Dumont d'Urville, 1837-40, originally gave the name Huon to a cape in this area after Felix Huon de Kermadec, a member of the expedition. A survey by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1946 did not identify the cape but applied the name to this bay which lies in the same area.
