I live nearby and it is actually called 'San Juan de Fuca' and as stated, named for an explorer.

  • I used to fly over the Straits of San Juan de Fuca all the time, working for Horizon Air. That sure is a beautiful area! - JulianChivi Jun 2, 2010 flag
  • Are you serious, Horizon was great, gone now I think? But yes, it is very beautiful, peaceful and wild. - margaretbl Jun 2, 2010 flag

Hi David. "Fuca" is not in the official Spanish dictionary, and I couldn't find any translation online. I'm guessing is a name.

Sorry that I couldn't be of more help.
