More Information

Admiralty has high densities of Alaskan Brown Bear which travel throughout the different drainages, and visitors would be wise to take proper precautions. Seymour Canal and other bays such as Mitchell, Hood, Chaik, Whitewater, Pybus and Gambier contain marine mammals such as harbor seals and porpoises, sea lions and occasionally humpback whales. Waterfowl and seabirds overwinter in these bays in abundance and many of the tributary streams have strong runs of salmon in the late summer and fall.

A unique feature of Admiralty is the Cross Island Canoe route which connects Mole Harbor in Seymour Canal to Angoon. The route passes through as many as eight lakes connected by maintained portage trails dating back to the l930's. Some of the lakes have Forest Service public recreation cabins available for rental from the Forest Service. Others have rustic three-sided shelters and others have only primitive campsites. Ducks and loons nest on the lakes, and most have good populations of cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden char.
