Swanson Harbor, where Icy Strait, Lynn Canal, and Chatham Strait all meet up, is a popular anchorage. But a word of caution for boaters who are not local: stay clear of the reef, known as Sharp Ledge, on the southwest side of the entrance. Stay on a course for Rocky Island until well past the kelp. When leaving the harbor it can be tempting to turn west into Icy Strait towards Glacier Bay too soon. Also be aware of a drying spit at the NW tip of Couverden Island just outside the State float.
