About Bearing Island

Bearing Island (or also Direction Island) is a small antarctic island lying midway between Nansen Island and Enterprise Island in Wilhelmina Bay, off the west coast of Graham Land. Bearing Island is located at (64°33′S 62°2′W / 64.550°S 62.033°W). The name Bearing or Direction Island was used for this feature by whalers in the area because the island and a rock patch on Nansen Island were used as leading marks when entering Foyn Harbor from the southeast.
