Located on the west side of Cook Inlet on Chisik Island, Snug Harbor originally was built as a cannery in 1908. After it closed, the Porter family had the chance to acquire the site. Since they had spent years fishing the waters and enjoying the island, they bought it. After enjoying the area as a family retreat, the renovations began.
Today, guests can enjoy comfy accommodations while exploring “the forgotten shore” on the edge of Lake Clark National Park.
Guests typically stay for one or two nights, which affords time to fish, to see the bears and to learn about the history of the cannery—and its special place as Alaska’s “forgotten shore”.
Here’s what’s included in your package:
– Roundtrip boat transfer from Homer or Kenai to Snug Harbor Outpost on Chisik Island
– Charter fishing for halibut
– guided bear viewing
– all meals
– orientation about the cannery’s history and the surroundings
