Names that other countries have for this feature:
The largest of several small islands lying in the W entrance to Fildes Strait in the South Shetland Islands. This island and the two islands to the E and S of it were first surveyed and named collectively "70 Islets" by DI personnel on the Discovery II in 1934-35, because at least two of them were reported to be 70 ft high. The name was rejected by the UK-APC in 1961 and a new name substituted for the largest island in the group. Dart Island is named for the British sealing vessel Dart from London, which visited the South Shetland Islands in about 1823.
