Welcome to Yakutat

Our fishing village is remote yet accessible, in one of the most spectacular settings on earth

Let's go

Come and find the place where canoes rest

We’re a small village located on beautiful Monti Bay – the only sheltered deep water port in the gulf of Southeast Alaska.

There are no roads to Yakutat, travelers come by ferry or by air.

Although Yakutat’s mainstay is definitely commercial and sport fishing, the area has much more to offer visitors than just world class Steelhead, Salmon & Halibut fishing.

The Tongass National Forest claims top titles as the largest national forest in the United States, the largest remaining temperate rainforest, and the largest population of Bald Eagles in the world with an estimated 7000 residing throughout.

The forest is primarily made up of western red cedar, Sitka spruce, and western hemlock. Some of the oldest Sitka Spruce in the forest are found to be 800 years old, over 12 feet in diameter, and 200 feet tall.
