A promontory on Bridgeman Island
|Highest point:||787 feet|
It is an almost circular, volcanic island marked by steep sides, half a mile long and 780 feet high, lying 23 miles east of King George Island. The island is the remnants of a much larger volcanic edifice that is now largely submerged. The eroded volcano does not display youthful volcanic features. Several reports of 19th century fumarolic activity may instead refer to the much younger Penguin Island.
Bridgeman Island is an established name dating back to about 1820.
