Seeadler Harbor (147.37E 2.036S) is the principal harbor of the Admiralty Islands. A superb natural anchorage, 15 miles long by 4 miles wide (24 km by 6km) and 120' (37 meters) deep, it was almost entirely undeveloped in 1941.

The harbor was secured by the Allies in February-March 1944 (Operation BREWER) and became a major forward base.
