Sebree Island is an island in Muir Inlet, Glacier Bay in Alaska. It is named for United States Navy officer and Governor of American Samoa Uriel Sebree. Sebree Peak is named for the same officer. The island is located approximately 22 miles from Bartlett Cove in Glacier Bay. The entire area of Glacier Bay National Park, including Sebree Island is well worth visiting for its magnificent views and the vast amount of wildlife. Many visitors to the area utilize the services of The Spirit of Adventure, a tour boat from Glacier Bay Lodge that travels the 65 miles from Glacier Bay to the Glaciers at the top. The boat is a floating wildlife viewing platform. The catamaran is able to get close to Sebree Island and other shorelines enabling passengers to get up close to the many species of animal, mammals, and birds that inhabit the island and Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.
Glacier Bay and Sebree Island have no roads, so seeing the sights is possible only by cruise ship, tour boat, or kayak. Sebree Island is an excellent spot to be dropped off because it enables tourists to avoid the long paddle from park headquarters at Bartlett Cove. Kayakers often travel the length of the inlet to various scenic locations before returning to Sebree Island for pick up by the tour boat.
