About Blind Pass Cabin

Overview

Blind Pass Cabin sits on the northwest shore of Hassler Island, on Blind Pass. This secluded retreat is open year-round and makes an ideal base camp for exploring
the various bays and inlets in the northern Behm Canal area.

The site can be accessed by float plane, boat or kayak, depending on conditions. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring
several of their own amenities.

Recreation

The area is noted for king salmon runs into the Unuk River, with other salmon species, halibut, red snapper, Dungeness crab and shrimp also in abundance. A freshwater
lake with trout is located about a half-mile upstream from the cabin. There is no trail to the lake.

Sea kayaking is a popular mode of transportation, and many kayakers use this cabin as a base for exploring Bell Island, Gedney Pass and Bell Arm. It is also possible to
kayak to Bailey Bay and hike to the Lake Shelokum Hot Springs. Guests must supply their own equipment and should consult local tide tables before departing.

Hunting is also possible in designated seasons with a permit.

Facilities

This 12-by-14 cabin ( pan-abode style ) has two single bunks and two double bunks, to sleep up to six people. It is also equipped with a table and benches, broom, oil heater and an outhouse. A mooring float is available, but it is not for the exclusive use of cabin guests.

Water, heating oil, and electricity are not provided. Guests must bring No.1 diesel oil or kerosene (five gallons will last about a week). Water is available from a nearby
creek, but guests should be sure to treat any water taken from a natural source prior to drinking or cooking with it ( water safety tips ).
It is recommended that guests bring their own water supply.

Other items to pack include sleeping bags, sleeping pads, lanterns or flashlights, cookware, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, garbage bags, a fire extinguisher
and matches, among other necessities. Guests are expected to pack out trash and clean the cabin before leaving ( click
here for more cabin details).

Natural Features

The cabin is tucked into a sheltered cove, surrounded by old-growth forest. Low tides reveal a long beach in front of the cabin, and there is an adjacent stream. Guests
have views of Blind Pass and densely forested Black Island, which makes up the opposite shore.

Wildlife in the area include Sitka black-tailed deer, black bears and wolves (bear
