Southeast Alaska's clean, cold sea is prodigiously prolific. From sculpins and sea stars in tide pools to humpback whales, orca whales and sea lions feasting in the food-rich waters of our pristine ocean.
Boaters and kayakers may seal seals and sea otters swimming, feeding and playing in coves. Visitors must remember to enjoy marine mammals from a distance as they are federally protected. We try not to disturb them as they share our near-shore waters.
