Penguin Harbor is a channel that is under the administrative division of Washington. It is situated between the Guemes and Samish Islands. Furthermore, it can be found 3.9 miles away from Anacortes, Skagit County, and nearby some famous water bodies in the county such as Bellingham Channel, Levant Passage, and Guemes Channel – water bodies which have had historical ties with each other because of the Wilkes expedition (the U.S. exploring expedition authorized by Congress and which was under the command of Lt. Charles Wilkes; hence, the name of the expedition) which has managed to charter all of these areas.
The water body was named (by the Wilkes expedition) in honor of when distinguished American hero James Lawrence (whose name was also used to name an island that sits by Penguin Harbor) captured the English Vessel Penguin in the War of 1812.
