- 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.
