History

Name derived from The Nunatak mountain; published by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) (Twenhofel and others, 1946, pl. 2). The name Ankorage Cove was given by members of the Glacier Bay Expedition of 1941 (Field, 1947, map) because since 1931 the cove has offered the best anchorage in the area.
