Nomad Rock (63°13′S 57°42′W / 63.217°S 57.700°W / -63.217; -57.700Coordinates: 63°13′S 57°42′W / 63.217°S 57.700°W / -63.217; -57.700) is an isolated rock in Bransfield Strait, 5 nautical miles (9 km) off the north coast of Trinity Peninsula and 9 nautical miles (17 km) northeast of Cape Legoupil. So named by United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) because of confusion about the identity of geographic points along this coast, and because of the wandering of features and names on charts of this vicinity.
