Edisto Inlet (72°20′S 170°5′E / 72.333°S 170.083°E / -72.333; 170.083Coordinates: 72°20′S 170°5′E / 72.333°S 170.083°E / -72.333; 170.083) is a rectangular arm of Moubray Bay, 7 nautical miles (13 km) long and 3 nautical miles (6 km) wide, entered between Cape Hallett and Cape Christie. The USS Edisto (Commander Roger W. Luther) was the first ship to enter this branch of Moubray Bay in February 1956, and the name "Edisto Bay" was given at that time, but "Edisto Inlet" has overtaken the earlier name in usage.[1][2]
