Bulcke Finger (64°28′S 62°37′W / 64.467°S 62.617°W / -64.467; -62.617Coordinates: 64°28′S 62°37′W / 64.467°S 62.617°W / -64.467; -62.617) is a prominent finger-like pinnacle, projecting from the western slopes of Mount Bulcke in the southern part of Brabant Island in the Palmer Archipelago. It was first seen and photographed by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition, 1897–99. It was photographed by Hunting Aerosurveys Ltd in 1956–57, and mapped from these photos in 1959. The name derives from association with Mount Bulcke and came into use among members of the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey.
