Narrative

Nom donné par Paul-Émile Victor à une petite baie située dans la partie nord du cap Bienvenue entre les deux pointes, en souvenir de l'une des deux embarcations hydrographiques détruites au cours d'une tempête d'été (1961-62) à leur mouillage habituel (maintenant appelé baie des Épaves) dans l'archipel de Pointe-Géologie. Toponyme non retenu sur une carte marine classique, mais pouvant présenter un intérêt scientifique ou patrimonial.
