Maritime sights in Valdez
- Sort by:
Valdez' harbor is a classic: raucous with gulls and eagles, reeking of fish guts and sea salt and creosote, and home to all manner of vessels - even a Chinese junk. The benches and long boardwalk are ideal for watching lucky anglers weighing in 100lb or 200lb halibut, and for taking in the fairytale mountainscape in the background. Nearby is the civic center, which has more picnic tables and panoramic vistas.
