Narrative

La Expedición Antártica Francesa al mando de Jules Dumont D'Urvillle que se llevó a efecto en los años 1837-1840, le dio originalmente el nombre Huon a un cabo de esta área por Félix Huon de Kermadee un miembro de la expedición. Un siguiente levantamiento, ejecutado por el FIDS en 1946, encontró que dicho cabo no existía. Sin embargo el nombre Huon, se mantuvo para la bahía poco profunda situada en esta misma área. Bahía poco profunda de aproximadamente 5 millas de ancho entre los cabos Ducorps y Legoupil en la costa NW de la península Tierra de O'Higgins.
