Portage Bay, AK
Portage Bay is a huge anchorage, with room for literally hundreds of boats. We typically anchor near the entrance in 25 to 40 feet, but beware of current to several knots and lots of kelp. The kelp has fouled anchors and inlet strainers in the past.
A dock on the east shore seems to serve disused logging roads. A US Forest Service public use cabin is on the northwest corner of the bay, near the entrance
Mooring Ball: No
Fuel Available: No
Potable Water: No
Cell Service: None
Strong currents run near the entrance and we’ve had kelp foul anchors and intake strainers.
