The Harney Channel, between Shaw and Orcas Islands, is the approach to West Sound from the E. General depths in the channel range from 11 to 30 fathoms with a 9-fathom shoal 700 yards E of Broken Point, the northernmost extremity of Shaw Island.
Orcas, a village located on the N shore in a cove at the W end of Harney Channel, has a public wharf with about 9 feet alongside. A rock, covered 2½ fathoms, is about 125 yards S of the wharf; deep water is between the rock and the shore.
