History

Named in 1895 by Lieutenant Commander Moore, U.S. Navy (USN); published in 1899 by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) on Chart 8050. So named because "at the head of the bay is a waterfall***and near the waterfall there are several warm mineral springs." (U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, 1943, p. 332).
