Port Frederick offers generally calm and protected paddling. Forest clear-cutting detracts from some views, but the trade-off is the opportunity to view humpback whales, porpoises, seals, sea lions, and a variety of waterfowl in quiet waters close-up. Eagles diving for fish are a common sight, and it is an unusual day if you don’t see a brown bear shuffling along the beach in more remote locations. Day trips from Hoonah can take you to the entrance of Neka Bay with a turnaround at Grassy Rock, Chimney Rock, or Midway Island. If you camp a few miles inside Port Frederick, there is ample time for exploring Neka Bay and adjacent North and South Bights—remote places you will likely have all to yourself.
