On our trips from Wrangell to Craig and Klawock on the TWINKLE we carefully cruise through El Capitan and Dry Passes that separate Kosciusko Island and the west coast of Prince of Wales. In the beginning, the entire length was known as Klawak Passage. When the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey explored this area in 1904, there was a marble quarry called El Capitan being developed. Thus, this protected pass became known officially as El Capitan Pass. At that time two shoals blocked navigation except at flood-tide stages for everything except a canoe. At some point, Captain Cyrus Orr of Shakan began to use the name Dry Pass for the middle section that went dry about four feet at lowest tide.
