Narrative

in Fildes Strait between King George Island and Nelson Island, was charted by DI in 1934-35 when the name 70 Islets was applied to this island and the two islands to E and S, because two of them were reported to be "70ft high" (Nelson and others, chart, 1935g); following air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, and in association with the names of nineteenth-century sealers in this area, named after the British sealing ship Dart (Capt. Thomas Duell) from London, which visited the South Shetland Islands in 1822 (APC, 1962, p.10; DOS 610 sheet W 62 58, 1968). Ilha Dart (Brazil. PenĂ­nsula Fildes map, 1984 )
