Exploring Prince William Sound

And Surrounding Inlets
Look for Whales

Explore the Coast

Exploring Prince William Sound and the surrounding inlets can be managed a number of ways. Fish Central offers motor boat rentals, a number of fishing outfitters can supply boat charters, and Pangaea offers kayaking tours around Glacier Island and various inlets.

Renting a boat does have a limitation of distances you are allowed to travel. To optimize your experience try to schedule your adventure on a day with 2ft seas or less.

Jack Bay offers a few islands to explore. Be bear mindful when getting out of your boat. Brown (Grizzly) and black bear are found all along Prince William Sound, even on the furthest islands.

Valdez Saltwater Adventures, Valdez Outfitters, Orion Charters, Valdez Water Taxi and Charters, and Aurelia Charters, all offer charter tours of Prince William Sound. Check out our boat rentals page to look into going independent.

Boat Rentals at Fish Central

Fish Central is located right in the middle of N Harbor Dr along the harbor. Renting boats from Fish Central is quick and easy, giving you more time to get out on the water. Rentals start at $250 a day for a whole day of 7am-7pm giving you plenty of time to get out and find that fishing hole or spend the day exploring Port Valdez, Shoup Bay, Jack Bay, Valdez Arm, or Galena Bay.

Save time when you get back from fishing and leave your catch with Fish Central for processing as well.
