Squaw Harbor from the air

The Squaw Harbor Cannery was located on Unga Island, one of the islands that composes the Aleutian Islands in Alaska. It was one of the canneries acquired by Pacific American Fisheries (PAF) in 1917 when demand for salmon increased during World War I.

Squaw Harbor

The cannery was last operated by Peter Pan Seafoods, Inc., which still maintains limited operations in Sand Point.  Today, the former cannery is privately owned and home to a Bristol Bay fish tender operation.

Squaw Harbor is approximately seven miles from the Sand Point boat harbor and accessible only by boat.  Inquire of the Sand Point Harbormaster for permission and transportation to visit the old cannery.

Beaches

Posted on: July 11th, 2010 | Author: Alaska Political News Wire | Filed under: Areas of Local Interest

Sandy beaches like the one pictured at left are commonplace in Sand Point on Popof Island and on neighboring islands.  This feature makes the Shumagin Islands rather unique in Alaska as much of the state’s coastline is rocky.

Sand Dollar and Salmon Ranch beaches are within walking / driving distance of Sand Point.  Beaches along Red Cove, also on Popof Island, are located several miles off the island’s road system and accessible only by four wheeler, or boat.

Beaches on neighboring islands can be accessed either by boat, or plane.  A Bush pilot can be hired through one of the area lodges, several of which offer guided bear hunting trips.
