The Outcast Islands are two small islands, nearly 0.5 miles (0.8 km) apart, and a number of surrounding rocks lying 2 miles (3.2 km) southwest of Bonaparte Point, off the southwest coast of Anvers Island in the Palmer Archipelago of Antarctica. The Outcast Islands are located at 64°49′S 64°08′W / 64.817°S 64.133°W / -64.817; -64.133. The Outcast Islands were named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) following a survey in 1955 by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS). The name arose because of their isolated position some distance from the other islands in the vicinity of Arthur Harbor.
