Narrative

Fue descubierta por la Expedición Antártica Belga de 1897-1899, al mando del teniente Adrien de Gerlache, quien le dio el nombre por J.M.A. Cavelier de Cuverville, vicealmirante de la Armada Francesa. En algunas cartas chilenas de 1947 se aplicó este nombre erróneamente a la isla De Ronge. Isla constituida por roca oscura y que alcanza una altura de 252 metros, que está ubicada frente a la costa NE de la isla De Ronge y separada unos 3 cables de esta última, en el canal Errera, frente a la costa occidental de la península Tierra de O'Higgins.
