Petersburg, Alaska

Petersburg, Alaska is located in the heart of southeast Alaska's Inside Passage and just about mid-point between Juneau and Ketchikan, Alaska. Petersburg's central location provides a unique opportunity to enjoy real wilderness adventures in an unspoiled Alaskan community.

The town's five-block-long main street parallels the waterfront with its canneries, wharves and fuel docks perched on pilings driven deep into the ocean floor.It is also a very tidy city, with the natural beauty of the island-dotted seascape, great wildlife viewing and whale watching in the Summer.
