History

Spanish name given in 1775-79 by Don Juan de la Bodega y Quadra and Francisco Antonio Maurelle as "Bocas de Finas," "final (?) passage." According to Wagner (1937, p. 389), "It is perhaps an error for fines- probably the limit of Bucareli Bay at the north end of Mourelle's (sic) reconnaisance in 1779."
