Description (see definition): Bay 1.5 mi wide in the N side of Ice Fjord, South Georgia. The name North Bay was given to this feature by the Scottish geologist David Ferguson during his visit to South Georgia in 1911-12. Since the same name is well established for an arm of Prince Olav Harbor 20 mi away, the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) recommended in 1957 that a new name be substituted for this feature. Narval Bay is named after the catcher Narval, built in 1929, which was owned by the Compania Argentina de Pesca in 1934.
