Names that other countries have for this feature:
Rocky point forming the SE side of Biscoe Bay, immediately N of Access Point on the S side of Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. The FrAE under Charcot roughly surveyed the SW coast of Anvers Island in 1904. They gave the name "Presqu'ile de Biscoe" to a small peninsula on the SE side of Biscoe Bay, honoring John Biscoe who may have landed in the vicinity in 1832. When the coast was resurveyed by the FIDS in 1955, two rocky points were found in approximately that location; the name Biscoe Point has been applied to the more prominent of the two.
