Description (see definition): Point forming the W side of the entrance to Collins Harbor in the SW part of King George Island, South Shetland Islands. On his chart of 1825, James Weddell, Master, Royal Navy (RN), applied the name Nebles Harbour to Collins Harbor, or possibly to an anchorage close N of Ardley Island; the detail of this part of his map cannot be interpreted with certainty. Nebles Point was given by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1960 in order to preserve Weddell's naming in the area. The point lies between the two possible positions of his name.
