Overview

Amagat Peak is the highest point on Amagat Island, a small, uninhabited island near the mouth of Morzhovoi Bay, on the south side of the Alaskan Peninsula. It is about 20 miles east of False Pass, 25 miles west of King Cove, and 10 miles south of Frosty Volcano.

The island is .8 miles long and .4 miles wide, about 200 acres in area. Amagat Peak is the southeast peak on the island. At 1065 feet it is significantly higher than the 660-foot northwestern peak.

Amagat Island has an itinerant population of more than 450,000 seabirds, including large numbers of tufted puffins, horned puffins, and glaucous-winged gulls, along with various petrels, murres, mullelets, auklets, and terns.
