McIntyre Island is a small Antarctic island just west of Blakeney Point, Clark Peninsula, in the Windmill Islands. It was photographed from the air by USN Operation Highjump in 1946-47 and was included in a 1957 ground survey by C. R. Eklund. It was named by the latter for construction mechanic Robert McIntyre, USN, of the Wilkes Station party, 1957.
