D'Urville Island is an island of Antarctica. It is the northernmost island of the Joinville Island group, 27 kilometres (17 mi) long, lying immediately north of Joinville Island, from which it is separated by Larsen Channel.
The single island was charted in 1902 by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition under Otto Nordenskiöld, who named it for Captain Jules Dumont d'Urville, French explorer who discovered land in the Joinville Island group.
