Point lying 3 mi NW of Duthoit Point on the E side of Nelson Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name O'Cain's Island, after the American sealing vessel O'Cain (Capt. Jonathan Winship) from Boston, MA, was applied by the Stonington sealers in 1820-21 to Nelson Island, but this name did not become established. O'Cain Point was applied by the UK-APC in 1961 to preserve the American name in the area.
