Port of Dutch Harbor

Dutch Harbor, also known as Unalaska (the former technically refers to the harbor, while the latter denotes the community on land), in Alaska, is a commercial fishing port famed for being the first site in the continental U.S. to have been attacked during World War II. Dutch Harbor cruises are a fantastic way to take in the breathtaking natural beauty of this historical town on Amaknak Island.

Spot an array of protected seabirds and bald eagles on a Dutch Harbor nature tour, visit World War II historical sites (including the fascinating Aleutian World War II Visitor Center) or take a fishing excursion and catch fresh salmon and cod in the deep waters of the Pacific.
