Whittier, Alaska is a small town with a population of just 190, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in adventure. Originally built as a secret military base during WW2, Whittier is now a paradise for intrepid travelers seeking to explore the depths of the Alaskan wilderness. Paddle a kayak into the unspoiled waters of Prince William Sound, or try scuba-diving for a closer look at the underwater fauna. Boat tours depart regularly, to take you into the many steep glacier-fed fjords along the Sound. Spend a more tranquil afternoon fishing, as you navigate fishing spots in search of halibut, salmon, lingcod and rockfish. You could also take a charter out into the well-stocked waters of the Gulf of Alaska for a day of pitting your rod and reel against some of the biggest catches you could hope to snag!
