Naturally the Coast Salish occupied this area long before the Spanish sailors arrived. José María Narváez (1768 – August 4, 1840) was a Spanish naval officer and explorer notable for his work in the Gulf Islands and Lower Mainland of present-day British Columbia. This bay was likely named after Narvaez.
