    Default VTS in Valdez?

    If I were to go to jacks bay at Valdez are there special restrictions to get there and do I need a radio?

    Your boat is a non participant. You do not need to call VTS.

    Default A radio

    A radio, even hand held is a good idea. If you are planning to take the 16 footer out there you had better watch the weather well. I have a 21 foot Aurora and even crossing the port can be interesting on some days. There are halibut within the port. You might have to fish harder and longer, but I have taken on at about 148 pounds and know of one 168 pounder within you range still within the port.

    Make yourself aware of the security zone and the restrictions around tankers too.
