    Default Remote Public Docks???

    I was wondering if there was a list somewhere of remote docks for the public, where I can spend the night, have a campfire, etc. I spend a lot of time each summer running around Icy, Chatham, Petersburg, Kake, Juneau, etc. I am aware of Eight Fathom Dock, and Bohemia Dock. I run a 37' Carver Voyager. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Not sure if any such list exists. Most boaters anchor up and use some form of skiff/raft/kayak to get to shore when they want to. That allows a lot more flexibility than trying to find a dock in the middle of nowhere.

    You can contact the Fed Park people, State Forest Service.

    • Baranof Warm Springs is a small, primarily seasonally-occupied community in the U.S. state of Alaska, located on the eastern side of Baranof Island, from which it likely derives its name, in the Alexander Archipelago. It is occasionally referred to simply as Baranof. Baranof Warm Springs is located at 5705′22″N 13449′59″W / 57.08944


    • Tenakee Springs is a city on Chichagof Island in Hoonah-Angoon Census Area, Alaska, United States. At the 2000 census the population was 104.


    Mist Cove, has no dock last time I was there, but is a must see in late summer due to the late run of silvers! PM me for any questions.

    Some public floats I can recall:

    Meyers Chuck

    Hobart Bay, Entrance Island cove

    Taku Harbor (both attached to shore and unattached)

    Funter Bay (unattached)

    Swanson Harbor (unattached)

    Excursion Inlet, just N of cannery

    Port Frederick, south of Neka Bay

    Elfin Cove, both inner and outer

    Peril Strait, False Island (across from Rodman Bay)

    Baranof, Warm Springs Bay (often requires rafting)

    Port Protection, Wooden Wheel Cove

    Trawlerman or anyone else interested I have a trip planed for next spring. Plan is to leave Haines the last of May and then head to Juneau and on south. The plan is wide open as to where and when. I have done the south end of the inside passage before but not the north end. Not sure what your plan or schedule is, but always open to a second or third boat, for just a few days or over night on the hook. If you are interested PM me and we can talk about it. Thanks Dan

    That was a huge help, thanks a lot!

    Trawlerman question when you advise "unattached " are you referring to mooring bouts or flooring docks. I loved the floating docks in the Portland Channel on the BC side when I was there a few years back. Thanks Dan

    I'm referring to floating docks that are not connected to shore.
