McCarthy Point (74°25′S 130°59′W) is an ice-covered point that marks the northeastern extremity of Grant Island on the seaward edge of the Getz Ice Shelf, Antarctica. It was discovered and charted from the USS Glacier on February 4, 1962, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Lieutenant J.F. McCarthy, U.S. Navy, disbursing officer on the Glacier at the time of discovery.
