The Goff Glacier is a sweeping glacier on Thurston Island off the Eights coast of west Antarctic Ellsworthland . It flows from Parker Peak in the Walker Mountains into the head end of Koether Inlet on the island's north coast.

The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names named him in 2003 after Lieutenant Robert G. Goff of the United States Navy , co-pilot of a Martin PBM Mariner in Operation Highjump (1946-1947) for the creation of aerial photographs of Thurston Island and the neighboring mainland coastal region.
