What to Do: Summer
Day-long or extended tours of Prince William Sound will take you to the best vantage points for glaciers, sealife, and shorebirds. Excursion vessels, rental boats, charters, and sail boats depart from the Small Boat Harbor for fishing, sightseeing and lodge transport. Flightseeing trips over some of the most impressive mountains and glaciers anywhere are regularly made all summer in helicopters and planes.
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy both inland and ocean options in Valdez. Guided raft trips will take you past towering waterfalls of Keystone Canyon. Fly-outs and drop-offs are possible to remote locations in the Sound and Chugach Mountains. Skim the seas on a guided nature kayak tour or take an extended camping trip. Be sure to sample Valdez's rich history by visiting one or all three of the local museums.
