Surge Rocks (64°47′S 64°4′W / 64.783°S 64.067°W / -64.783; -64.067) are a group of five rocks, two always exposed, lying 190 metres (0.1 nmi) southwest of Eichorst Island and 1 kilometre (0.6 nmi) south-southeast of Bonaparte Point, Anvers Island. The name was suggested by Palmer Station personnel in 1972. Ocean swells working on the shoal surrounding these rocks, cause breaking and a "surge" of the water level in any weather condition.
