Kårhamn (coord|70|32|35|N|23|9|0|E|type:city(30)_scale:10000) is a small fishing village on the island Seiland southwest of Hammerfest.

Kårhamn has an approximate population of 50 people, where most are employed in fisheries. The village also has a small school and a grocery store with post office. The grocery store has also recently begun to function as a small library, taking over this service from the school.

Kårhamn was previously located in Sørøysund municipality, but became a part of Hammerfest when Sørøysund was incorporated into the latter on 1 January 1992.
