"Yakutat" is a Tlingit name reported as "Jacootat" and "Yacootat" by Yuri Lisianski in 1805. La Pérouse, who visited it in 1786, named it "Baie de Monti" for one of his officers. The same year, Captain Nathaniel Portlock named it "Admiralty Bay", while the Spanish called it "Almirantazgo." The name "Bering Bay" has also been applied on the assumption that Vitus Bering visited it in 1741.
