The trip from Hoonah to Point Adolphus is not outstanding but the destination is. Point Adolphus is arguably the best place in Southeast Alaska to watch humpback whales. I don’t think there is any summer day when you will fail to see several humpbacks feeding and cavorting in the nearshore waters. This is also the place to see a pod or two of sea lions, orcas, porpoise, and most anything else that comes in pods—except peas. An occasional sea otter will swim by, while eagles soar overhead. There is excellent camping in Pinta Cove and on the west side of Point Adolphus.
