Seymour Canal is an inlet penetrating deep into the southeastern part of Admiralty Island, Southeast Alaska, United States.[1] The inlet was first charted in 1794 by Joseph Whidbey, master of the HMS Discovery during George Vancouver's 1791–95 expedition. Vancouver later named it "Seymour's Channel".[2] Two large islands are located within it: Swan Island to the north, and Tiedeman Island just to its south.
