In the 16th century, the area was explored by English explorer Martin Frobisher, who named it "Frobisher's Fjord".

In the 19th century, Sermilik was an important whaling station. In 1892, the whaling station was destroyed by a large fire, which is believed to have been caused by a lightning strike. In the 20th century, Sermilik was the site of a Danish military base during World War II.
