Activities & Adventures in Prince William Sound

Wildlife abounds here in the remoteness of Prince William Sound. On land at any given moment you can be enthralled by the presence of the mysterious Black Bear or look up and see soaring Bald Eagles looking at you from high in the sky. You might even catch a glimpse of a Sitka Black Tail deer feeding on lush green grass near the shoreline. The island is great for hiking and the shoreline is great for beach combing.

When on the water you may get a surprise visit as Dall Porpoises play right beside the boat. It is very common to view Sea Otters looking curiously as you pass them by. If you’re lucky you will see them with their young pups riding on their belly or floating next to them. To top your adventure off, you may witness whales flourishing at certain times of the summer as they come in to the Sound to feed. Try a kayaking excursion or a wildlife tour to get up close and personal with the Sound’s fauna.

There are 5 species of salmon that inhabit Prince William Sound. Regardless of when you come, be prepared for a spectacular sight as you see the salmon migrating through the passages to spawn by the hundreds or even thousands in the small streams along the coastline.

In addition to salmon, Prince William Sound offers world class fishing for “barn door” halibut, ling cod and rockfish. Go out on a fishing charter to catch these monster fish.
