Stepovak Bay is a bay located on the Alaska Peninsula, Alaska, on the Gulf of Alaska. It is framed by the Stepovak Bay group of volcanoes, a chain of 5 cinder cone volcanoes in the Aleutian Arc. The volcanoes include Kupreanof[1] and four numbered volcanoes (1, 2, 3, 4).

It was named Stepovakho Bay or Stepof's Bay by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey in 1888 for Stepanof, a captain.[2]
