ABOUT EXCURSION INLET
Excursion Inlet, located on the north side of Icy Straits in Southeast Alaska, is about 40 miles from Juneau. Home to Ocean Beauty Seafoods, the first cannery opened in the early 1900’s. The cannery was used as a prisoner of war camp and, as a deep water port, was a strategic base for the Aleutian Campaign during WWII. Today Excursion Inlet is home to several fishing lodges, vacation homes and a year round population of 12 residents. The cannery has a museum, general store with ice, bait and supplies, and fuel and propane are available at the dock.
The Retreat is located in the Tongass National Forest, America’s largest at 17 million acres and 30% of the world’s remaining old growth temperate rainforest. It is claimed to be home to 7000 grizzlies, 10,000 bald eagles and 4000 salmon spawning streams. Excursion Inlet is about 10 miles long and is bordered by Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve and Glacier Bay National Monument.
Wildlife is abundant in the inlet. Common sightings include black and brown bear, moose, wolves, mink, otter, humpback and orca whales, porpoise, seals & sea lions, flocks of seabirds, eagles and heron.
Recreational activities include world class fishing for all five species of salmon-silver, sockeye, chum, pink & king, halibut. Cast for Dolly Varden or steelhead trout. Go beachcombing and explore tidal pools for mussels, butter clams, cockles, star fish and sea anemones. Crabbing and shrimping, hiking amongst the stately stands of old growth forest, berry picking, hunting, birding, kayaking, canoeing, photography or even water skiing!
