Big Crater Bay is a large body of water on the surface of the Human Inner Colony world of Reach. It was south of the Babd Catha Ice Shelf.[1]


During the Fall of Reach, a Covenant force attacked an island in the middle of the bay.[2] The 2nd Shock Troops Battalion were also deployed to this island, while the 7th Shock Troops Battalion, 22nd Shock Troops Battalion, elements of the 124th Infantry Brigade and an element of the 34th Infantry Brigade were all deployed to locations near the rim of the bay.[3]

On October 7, 2559, during Operation: WOLFE, the Owl Insertion Craft Special Delivery flew over Big Crater Bay on its way to the Highland Mountains.[1]
