An extensive bay lying immediately westward of Cape Cheetham in Oates Land. Discovered in 1911 by Pennell, in the BAE vessel Terra Nova. Named by Pennell in honour of Lieutenant Henry E de P Rennick, RN, who was one of the officers on the ship and who was responsible for the soundings taken on the voyage. Aerial photographs taken by the US Navy "Operation Highjump", 1946-47, indicate that this bay extends inland as much as 50 miles.
