The name Anse Denais, after a seaman in the expedition ship Pourquoi Pas?, was applied to a small cove below the ice cliffs on the NW side of Ezcurra Inlet, SW of the present feature (Charcot, 1912, Pl. 9), and also to a cove close to the present feature (Bongrain, 1914, Pl. 3 (upper photograph) following p.60). Denais Cove, in Charcot's position (BA chart 3213, 14.i.1929). Caleta Denais (Chile. DNH chart 502, 1947; Pierrou, 1970, p.306; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.99).
