Walker Cove, AK

Walker Cove is among the most scenic anchorages in Southeast Alaska. Mountain walls rise dramatically from the water to thousands of feet and waterfalls cascade from alpine snowfields. It is part of Misty Fiords National Monument.

A free public mooring buoy is in the bay that indents the south shore. This buoy is first-come, first-served. Anchorage is possible nearby, although the bay is deep and steep-to. Anchorage is also possible at the head of the bay off the drying flats. Use caution when approaching the flats, since the bottom shallows quickly. We’ve had success dropping about 250 feet of anchor rode in 120 feet of water and backing towards shore. If the anchor sets and the boat stops in sufficiently deep water, we’re happy.

Exploring by dinghy is a highlight. Bears frequent the shoreline, particularly near the streams when the salmon are running.
