Astrolabe Island ist eine in der Bransfieldstraße westlich der Trinity Peninsula gelegene Insel. Sie ist unbewohnt, hat eine Länge von etwa 4,8 km und beherbergt verschiedene Pinguinarten (u. a. Esels- und Adeliepinguine).[1]

Entdeckt und benannt wurde die Insel während der ersten französischen Antarktisexpedition (1837–1840) unter Jules Dumont d’Urville. Eines seiner Schiffe hieß Jean-François de La Pérouse. Dieses Schiff war auch namensgebend für die Insel.[2]
