General Information

Description - *This information is provided by Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation*

In Lynn Canal, weather and winds are unpredictable, making anchoring very difficult. Be sure to bring your boat above high tide mark when pulling it on shore. Beaches are rocky.

Attractions - Kayaks have the best bet since they can be brought on shore and have a shallow draft.

Recreation - Two bays on east side provide access, but no anchorages.

Climate - The climate in Alaska varies with terrain and region. The south-central region of the state is most temperate because it is protected from cold northern winds by the Alaska Range. The large bodies of water that lies closely to this area create a stabilizing factor for the air temperature. Southeast Alaska is wet. An average of 80 inches of rain comes to this region directly from the Gulf of Alaska.

In contrast to the southeastern region, the interior receives very little precipitation. The winters are long in this region with spring, summer and fall taking place from May through September. The western coast of Alaska experiences long, cold winters and short, chilly summers. This area is very far north and at the mercy of huge water bodies that don't warm. Southwestern Alaska experiences foggy, wet summers with high temperatures reaching 60 degrees F. Winters are severe on this long peninsula of land with storms rising from the surrounding waters frequently. The average rainfall for the region is 75 inches/year.

Location - Sullivan Island State Marine Park is south of Chilkat Island SMP and 20 air miles south of Haines.
