Point located centrally along the S shore of Seymour Island, lying SE of James Ross Island at the S margin of Erebus and Terror Gulf. The point was possibly seen in 1843 by a British expedition under Ross, and was roughly charted by Capt. C.A. Larsen who landed on the island in 1892 and 1893. Recharted by the SwedAE under Nordenskjold, 1901-04, who so named it because a large penguin colony was found there.
