Bahía del Faro [=lighthouse bay], so called from the light sited on Py Point by AAE in 1947 (Argentina. MM chart 106, 1949; Pierrou, 1970, p.359). Bahía South (Chile.

A station for summer occupation was established on the SE shore of the bay by the Chilean Navy, 18 February 1962, and called "Yelcho" after the Chilean oceanographic ship "Yelcho" (BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/3, 1-DOS 1979).
