Juan de Fuca was the name of a Greek ships' pilot who reported visiting what is now known as the the Strait of Juan de Fuca in the 1590s. His account has been considered fictitious (just as this likeness). Nevertheless, his published reports of the fabled strait attracted many other explorer to this region. The Strait, once verified, was named in his honor. (photo: Olympic Coast NMS)
