AK Adventures | Prince William Sound

I thought I'd start this series off with one of our favourite Alaskan adventures, a fishing trip in Prince William Sound. There really is no other place like it.

Discovered in 1778 by Captain James Cook, Prince William Sound is ringed by the steep and glaciated Chugach Mountains, part of the nation's second largest and northernmost national forest, Chugach National Forest. The coast line is convoluted, with many islands and fjords, several of which contain glaciers. Commercially important for fishing and oil industries, the sound is also prized for its abundance of marine and coastal life, from seals to porpoises, to bears and bald eagles, from spruce and hemlock rain forests to glacier-studded landscapes.

You can't pass through Prince William Sound without being in complete awe.

Have you ever gone deep sea fishing? I'd love to hear about it!
