Names that other countries have for this feature:
Island 7 mi long marked by numerous small coves, lying on the NW side of Edisto Channel in the Highjump Archipelago. Mapped from air photos taken by USN Operation HighJump in February, 1947. Named by the US-ACAN in 1956 after the USS Currituck, seaplane tender and flagship of the western task group of USN Operation HighJump, Task Force 68, 1946-47. At that time, the northern portion was thought to be a separate feature and was named "Mohaupt Island," but subsequent Soviet Expeditions (1956-57) found that only one large island exists.
