Description (see definition): That part of the coast of Antarctica extending from a point opposite eastern Dean Island, at 7442S, 12705W, to Cape Herlacher. The coast in this area is bounded by several large ice-covered islands and the very extensive Getz Ice Shelf.

Byrd. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) completely mapped the coast from ground surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1959-66. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for R. Admiral Fred E. Bakutis, Commander of the U.S. Naval Support Force, Antarctica, from 1965 to 1967.
