My husband, son (2.5 years old), and I will be visiting Dutch Harbor in September on a cruise ship. We have contacted Bobbie (Extra Mile Tours) for a tour but have not heard back from her yet. As a plan B, we are thinking of renting a car for the day. Can anyone recommend an itinerary or places not to miss?
We love driving through beautiful scenery, stopping for photographs, viewing wildlife in their natural habitat, and learning about different cultures. I read in a previous post that Captain's Bay Road is a great place for whale watching. We were thinking about stopping at the Holy Ascension of Our Lord Christ. What else?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Hi, I apologise for the boring question, but I would appreciate a reply.
We will be going to Dutch Harbour on the 5 October, and we are wondering if it will be to late to spot some humpback whales in the harbour....or it too late thanks max
Where is the best and cheapest place to stay in dutch harbor?
I want to study surimi/crabsticks and the pollock fisheries. How do I get from Japan to Dutch Harbour(!)? Can I get an impression of the fisheries by making a visit to Dutch Harbour. Others things of interest in the area for my mission? Would it be possible to go out with a boat/commercial vessel? Whisch season would be the best?
I'm from Kansas, but recently I came into possession of a bottle with a message in it found on the beach at Seaside, Oregon. There is a faded date on the message, September 1970 or 1980. The message is rather cryptic and I am trying to figure it out; one part of it reads, "The Sea Star, Dutch Harbour, Alaska." This could be a ship or a boat from Dutch Harbor, or it could be one that was just visiting; or it could be a restaurant or something completely different. Is there anything in Dutch Harbor named "The Sea Star"? How can I track down information on a ship or a boat from twenty or thirty years ago? Are there any locals I can contact who might know more about this? If anyone can suggest any leads it will be really helpful, and thank you!
