Elfin Cove & George Island, Alaska

The southeast Alaska community of Elfin Cove lies on the northern shore of Chichagof Island, 70 miles west of Juneau and 33 miles west of Hoonah, and is only accessible by small seaplane or boat. IT has a total area of 10.7 square miles of land and 0.1 square miles of water. Historical accounts suggest the well-protected, flask-shaped harbour was originally called "Gunkhole" by local fishermen seeking anchorage. Its safe anchorage and close proximity to Fair-weather fishing grounds made this natural harbour an optimal location for fish buyers and supplies. View more
