Point Dume (Dumé)
On November 24, 1793, English explorer George Vancouver, commander of an expedition to determine the extent of settlement of the north west coast of America, named this rocky promontory, Point Dume, after his Franciscan friend, Father Francisco Dumetz, at Mission San Buenaventura. Point Dume is the western terminus of Santa Monica Bay and has been an important landmark for navigators since Vancouver’s voyage in 1793.
