Description From Owner:
  • Discovery Passage - Named by Captain Kellett, RN, in 1847.
  • Apparently Kellett was mindful that Captain George Vancouver's HMS Discovery, 340 tons, mounting ten four-pounder cannon and ten swivel guns, had sailed through this passage during Vancouver's circumnavigation of Vancouver Island in 1792.
  • Cape Mudge - Named by Vancouver in 1792 after Zachary Mudge (1770-1852), his first lieutenant on HMS Discovery. Mudge was again on this coast in 1796 as first lieutenant on HMS Providence.
  • He commanded the frigate Blanche when it surrendered to a French squadron in 1805, but a subsequent court martial acquitted him and congratulated him on his 'very able and gallant' conduct.
  • He subsequently rose to the rank of full admiral in the Royal Navy.
  • Quathiaski Cove - From the Island Comox Indian word meaning 'island in the mouth,' referring to the island at the cove's entrance.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
