Ocean Ports of Call

Chatham Strait - USA, Alaska Highlights:
Alexander Archipelago, narrow inlets, secluded bays, wildlife
Chatham Strait is a canyonlike channel in the northern Alexander Archipelago in southeastern Alaska. It extends for 150 miles (240 km) from the junction of Icy Strait and the Lynn Canal, past Chichagof and Baranof islands to the west and Admiralty and Kuiu islands to the east and on to Coronation Island and the open sea. The deep navigable strait is 3-10 miles (5-16 km) wide and forms part of the Inside Passage. Along the Baranof side, many narrow inlets and secluded bays penetrate deep into the rugged, mountainous interior of the island where you can keep an eye out for wildlife activity . To the south, ruins of failed enterprises, now reclaimed by the forest, might be glimpsed: old whaling stations, salmon salteries and canneries, mines, and fish-meal plants. It was named in 1794 by the British navigator George Vancouver after the 2nd Earl of Chatham.
