Vermillion Bay

A bay, frequently spelled Vermilion, with only one "L," located in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana, southeast of Vermilion Parish and southwest of Iberia Parish.

Vermillion Bay (CVE-108), a Commencement Bay-class escort carrier, was renamed Kula Gulf (q.v.) on 6 November 1943, prior to the laying of her keel.
