Admiralty Island
At the heart of the Inside Passage sits Admiralty Island, called Kootznoowoo by the native Tlingit—a word that translates to “Fortress of the Bear.” And with good reason: The island is home to the Admiralty Island National Monument and boasts the world’s highest concentration of brown bears (about 1,600 in total). The island is also home to around 5,000 bald eagles, with an average of one nest for every mile of coastline along Seymour Canal, on the east side of the island.
