Walker Cove, Alaska
Walker Cove, located just 41.8 miles from Ketchikan, extends about 8.5 miles into the mainland. The scenery is stunning with towering rock walls on both side and hundreds of waterfalls plunging down into the fjord. There is always the possibility of seeing bears, Harbour Seals Bald Eagles along the shoreline. The British explorer George Vancouver noted this bay on his chart in 1793, although there was no mention of it in his log. It was named after Dr. William Walker, the physician on board the HMS Chatham. The Chatham was the survey brig that accompanied the HMS Discovery during the 1791 – 1795 expedition of the west coast of North America.
