History

The name "Isla San Juan Bautista," i.e. "St. John the Baptist Island," was given to this feature by Francisco Antonio Maurelle who "in his exploration of the bay (Baucareli) examined the northern part of this island on May 30, 1779, but no doubt he had discovered it before" (Wagner, 1937, p. 410).
