Geography

Cape Morton is located west of Cape Lucie Marie, off the mouth of the Petermann Glacier opposite Cape Tyson at the northern end of the Petermann Peninsula. Mushroom-shaped Joe Island lies 3.2 km from the shore west-north-west of the cape.

Together with Cape Baird on the eastern coast of Ellesmere Island this cape marks the northern limit of the Kennedy Channel and the entrance of the Hall Basin, both part of the Nares Strait.
