Map of Cape Chaplin area

The area was first surveyed described and mapped by Russian mariner Count Fyodor Petrovich Litke during the First Kamchatka Expedition and it was named by Litke in honor of midshipman Peter Chaplin Avraamovich, a member of the expedition.
Cape Chaplino was the site of the Yupik village named Ungazik (Chaplino; Unisak on USCGS charts) which gave its name to the Chaplinski dialect of the Siberian Yupik language. The cape is shown as "Indian Point" on a USCGS chart from 1897.
