1853 Survey of the Olympic Coast by Lt. James Alden. (photo: Olympic Coast NMS)

Text in Upper Left Corner of Chart:

In rounding Cape Flattery into the Straits of Juan De Fuca, an anchorage is found in Nei-ah Harbor on the southern shore. Anchor in this harbor well in, close to the kelp, where the heavy swell, which comes in from the Northward, and Westward, will be felt less than farther out. The best anchorage for small vessels, at all seasons, is in the channel between the shore and Wa-ad-dah Island, where, if necessary, they can moor with a stern line to the shore. Other good anchorages are found on the South shore of the straits of Juan De Fuca.

Cape Flattery and Nei-ah Harbor as also the Harbor of False Dungeness have been surveyed and preliminary charts published.

Note The North shore of the straits of Juan De Fuca, and a portion of the soundings on the South shore are from the survey of Capt. Henry Kellet R. N. Entrance of Admiralty Inlet, and Gray's Harbor are from the charts of the US Exploring Expedition.
