Seaside Communities: Dutch Harbor

May 04, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Dutch Harbor is located along the Aleutian Island chain and is one of the biggest fishing ports in the world.  In recent years it has been made famous by the Discovery Channel with its Deadliest Catch reality show.


We had the opportunity to spend a long weekend there while we were living in Anchorage.  Getting to Dutch Harbor is interesting - our flight had to stop at Cold Bay (a town on Alaska's mainland) to pick up more fuel in case of fog at Dutch Harbor.  The extra fuel is needed to be able to return to Anchorage.
