    Take enough fuel with you as there are no gas stations in PWS outside of Whittier, Valdez or Cordova.

    They will sell fuel but only in an emergency. They do not accept credit cards. cost a couple of years ago was double Whittiers price.
    Remember that they only get a fuel barge once a year or so. Because of that they do not want to become a gas station for all the PWS boaters.

    The folks there are very nice though

    Another thing to keep in mind is that the fuel pump is not down at the dock, so you will have to hand carry it to the dock. A lot of the tenders out there also carry fuel for sale to fill up the commercial fleet. If you ask nicely, they will sell you fuel too.

    They have both gas and diesel but in all my years in the sound i've never seen a rec boat get fuel from a tender.

    I was at Sawmill Bay last weekend, and there was a fellow rec boater that was able to buy gas from a tender that was out of Kodiak. I know this because had he not been able to buy any gas I was going to follow him back to Whittier and tow him if he ran out. Chenega would not sell him any.

    I think if you run out of fuel in PWS you are being very irresponsible and a danger to those in your boat. There is simply no excuse for running out of gas/fuel, none what so ever!

    Know your limits and stay within those and keep you and your passagers safe.....
