Our Location: The Turnagain Arm was named by Captain James Cook in 1776. The landscape is a narrow channel of Alaskan ocean being flanked on either side by the Chugach mountains reaching up to 6,000 feet. This famous stretch of water is known for its 40 foot tide changes, tidal bore waves, and its ever changing glacial silt channels that have an appearance of mud. The Turnagain Arm is widely regarded as the most scenic drive in North America and can be experienced more intimately on the quiet trail.
