Smith Sound is an Arctic sea passage between Ellesmere Island, to the west and northwestern Greenland to the east. The sound is over 30 miles wide and runs northward for 55 miles (88 km) from Baffin Bay to the Kane Basin. The sound was discovered in 1616 by William Baffin and named after Sir Thomas Smythe (Smith), promoter of voyages to find a Northwest Passage. It was not until the mid 19th century that any explorer reached a more northern latitude. Here you will find Pim Island where Adolphus Greeley's men struggled ashore and died at Starvation Camp.
