Baranof IslandsBaranof Island, also sometimes called Baranov Island, Shee or Sitka Island, is an island in the northern Alexander Archipelago in the Alaska Panhandle, in Alaska. Baranof Island hosts the highest mountain in the Alexander Archipelago, and is the eighth largest island in Alaska. Sitka is set on the outer banks of Baranof Island on the waterways of the Inside Passage. Almost the entire area of the island is part of the City and Borough of Sitka (Sitka also extends northward onto Chichagof Island). The only part of Baranof that is not in Sitka is a tiny sliver of land at the extreme southeast corner, which is in the Petersburg Census Area, and includes the town of Port Alexander.
