The Delusion Point ( English for imaginary tip) is a headland on the Oskar II coast of Graham Land on the Antarctic Peninsula . At the head of Exasperation Inlet, it forms the eastern end of a mountain ridge that represents the south face of the Crane Glacier .

The Australian polar explorer Hubert Wilkins photographed the headland during his overflight on December 20, 1928. The Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey mapped it in 1947 and made the name. It is named after the name of the Crane Glacier, which for a long time had been mistakenly assumed to be a canal that cuts through the Grahamland in its width.
