Dry Pass in Detail.


in W end of El Capitan Passage, 2.5 mi. E of Shakan Bay, between Prince of Wales and Kosciusko Is., Alex. Arch.


Local descriptive name obtained from Captain Cyrus Orr, of Shakan, reported in 1904 by E. F. Dickins, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS); so called because "in the narrows it runs dry at ebb of every large tide." This feature was called "'Klawak Passage' by the local fishermen because it is the beginning of the inside passage taken * * * from Shakan to Klawak."
