Cape Fie ( Norwegian Kapp Fie , also known as English Discovery Point ) is a small cape on the southeast coast of Bouvet Island . It separates the Vogt coast in the west from the Mowinckel coast in the north.

The first mapping was carried out in 1898 during the Valdivia expedition under Carl Chun . Cape Fie was mapped again and finally named in December 1927 during the first Antarctic voyage with the whale and sealer Norvegia (1927–1928) under Captain Harald Horntvedt (1879–1946), which was financed by the Norwegian whaling entrepreneur Lars Christensen . It is named after Christensen's youngest daughter Augusta Sofie (* 1919), known as "Fie".
