Port Description

Wrangell, Alaska

The Stikine River beside this town swells with five types of salmon, which attracts hungry bears on a mission. It is possible to safely spy on the feast from the Anan Bear Observatory, where the lucky get a glimpse of the sweet salmon practically leaping into greedy open jaws. In spring, the town also hosts the state's largest concentration of bald eagles, and at all times of year the fishing is spectacular. A tribal house and totem poles await on Tlinget Chief Shakes Island, and treasures from the past are preserved at Petroglyph Beach State Historic Park.
