History

Named in 1867 by George Davidson, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), for the vessel Iphigenia Nubiana, commanded by Captain William Douglas in 1788. Davidson said "No name having been applied to this bay, we have designated it as Iphigenia Bay, after Douglas's vessel" (U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, 1869, p. 95).
