Names that other countries have for this feature:
Bay 6 mi wide, lying between False Round Point and Brimstone Peak along the N side of King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name Esther Bay was used for this feature by Scottish geologist David Ferguson in 1913-14. Since the ship Esther is already commemorated on two neighboring features, the UK-APC recommended a new name in 1960; Venus Bay is named for the schooner Venus from New York, which visited the South Shetland Islands in 1820-21, and was wrecked on a reef in the entrance to nearby Esther Harbor on Mar. 7, 1821. Her crew was rescued a few days later by the Esther and Emerald.
