Detaille Island is a small island off the northern end of Arrowsmith Peninsula in Antarctica. From 1956 to 1959 it was home to "Station W" of the British Antarctic Survey[1] but it closed after the end of the International Geophysical Year. It is now visited with some frequency by Antarctic cruise ships but is otherwise unoccupied.
