Taku Harbor

…. another “last chance to see” …



This is another of those spots that is slowly disappearing back into the rain forest.  Evidently there was a huge cannery here at one time but now all that remains is the stumps of the pilings and some rotting machinery in the bush.  The locals have built a really good float with probably 400 feet of face available with direct shore access plus another detached float with roughly 200 feet of face.  And its all free.  Can’t argue with that price.  Its about a 3 hour cruise out of Juneau and obviously popular with the locals.  There was one little sailboat on the dock when we arrived that has since left and been replaced by 3 large cruising boats, all local.
