Location in Antarctica
|Administered under the Antarctic Treaty System|
The Outcast Islands are two small islands, nearly 0.9 km (0.5 nmi) apart, and a number of surrounding rocks lying 3.7 km (2 nmi) southwest of Bonaparte Point, off the southwest coast of Anvers Island in the Palmer Archipelago of Antarctica. 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.
