The Town that Fish Built!
Petersburg is a quaint, friendly, waterfront community located on the northern shore of Mitkof Island; just one of a thousand islands that comprise the Alexander Archipelago of Southeast Alaska. Petersburg's main economic base is commercial fishing, and home to the largest fishing fleet in Southeast; the reason being ... we are right in the middle of some of the best fishing in Alaska!

     The Petersburg area is ideally suited to the outdoor enthusiast, with boating experience, looking for a self-guided boating adventure.
Jensen’s Boat Rentals will provide you with a sea-worthy, dependable, and well-maintained, 18’ - 22' aluminum skiff; outfitted as needed for your expedition.
Get out on the water and fill your day with sport fishing, seasonal hunting, cruising/exploring, camping, beach walks, or spend your time observing the magnificent humpback whales of Fredrick Sound.
  • Sport Fishing:  You may choose to saltwater sport fish for halibut, salmon, or Dungeness crab; or freshwater sport fish for trout or steelhead. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game provides a great seasonal chart for your favorite fishing activity.
  • Camping:  Pick one of eleven  US Forest Service cabins (direct saltwater access) in the area and spend time enjoying the quiet solitude you will experience while camping, hiking, or viewing wildlife in our amazing coastal rain forests.
  • Cruising & Exploring:  Plan a relaxing cruise and explore just a few of the many pristine bays, sloughs and small rivers, along the hundreds of miles of our island coastlines.
  • Hiking/Backpacking:  Walk the beaches-have a picnic, take a wilderness hike to an inland lake, or climb your way to the top of Petersburg Mountain for a spectacular view of Petersburg and our inland waterways.
  • Alaska Photo-Ops: During the summer, the waters of Southeast Alaska become the feeding grounds to the awesome humpback and killer whales. You will find sea lions lounging on their rookeries or taking a time out on the local channel buoys. To the southeast of Petersburg, you may - from a safe distance, view the very active and spectacular Le Conte glacier. On occasion you will catch a glimpse of local wildlife: black or brown bear, Sitka black-tail deer, moose, wolf; and observe our plentiful bird life - the American bald eagle, seabirds, waterfowl and migratory birds that are here for the summer.
  • Hunting: Bear hunters arrive in April-May for the spring hunt; deer hunters arrive in August; waterfowl hunters in the fall; several local, hunting areas are accessible by skiff.
  • Local Lodging: Check out the Lucky Loon, a waterfront beach house just minutes from downtown. We have many very friendly and comfortable vacation rentals and  local hotels to serve you.
  • Please note: for fishing or hunting you will need a State of Alaska fishing/hunting license, available from Alaska Department of Fish & Game.
