SS Baychimo was a steel-hulled 1,322 ton cargo steamer built in 1914 in Sweden and owned by the Hudson's Bay Company, used to trade provisions for pelts in Inuit settlements along the Victoria Island coast of the Northwest Territories of Canada.

The Baychimo became a notable ghost ship along the Alaska coast, being abandoned in 1931 and seen numerous times since then until her last sighting by a group of Inuit in 1969, 38 years after she was abandoned.
