Stickney Islet is located about 7 miles south of Reevesby Island. It is a low-lying rocky island with above water rocks extending about 300 metres from its south-eastern tip. The main anchorage is in a small cove on the north-west coast where the bottom is sand with patchy weed and the holding is good.

Another anchorage exists in a deep bay on the southern side of the island and gives shelter from northerlies. The bottom here is also sand with patchy weed and good holding.

The coast line is rocky on this island, making shore access difficult if not impossible.
