Helm Point is located on the south tip of Coronation Island, Alaska. The headland was named in 1886 after Lieutenant James M. Helm, of the U.S. Navy, a member of the survey party led by Lieutenant Commander A.S. Snow.

Coronation Island is about 10 miles (16 km) long, located between Chatham and Sumner Straits. The island was named by Captain George Vancouver, of the Royal Navy, on September 22, 1793, in honor of the anniversary of the coronation of George III.

In 1908 the Alaska Packers Association steel square-rigged ship "Star of Bengal" was lost off Coronation Island in Southeast Alaska. Read more here and here. Click here to download the CoastView app and explore Coronation Island.
