To the southeast lies Bathurst Inlet. The gulf is home to several hundred islands and small islets. Major groupings include the Duke of York Archipelago, the Jameson Islands (guarding the entrance into Bathurst Inlet) and the numerous small islands found in the southwest.
Inside the gulf lies the Duke of York Archipelago. The gulf receives the Coppermine River, Tree River, Rae and Richardson rivers. The small settlement of Kugluktuk lies at the mouth of the Coppermine River. The gulf was named by Sir JohnFranklin in 1821, in honour of the coronation of King George IV.
