Come for a Day, Make Memories for a Lifetime

Welcome to Elfin Cove, Alaska  

Our community is nestled into a naturally protected harbor off of Cross Sound on Chichagof Island. Elfin Cove is the last community as you exit Icy Strait heading into Cross Sound and the Gulf of Alaska.  Whether you are coming in from the coast or just heading out, stop in for a fuel up, some provisions and even a bite to eat. While in Elfin Cove take a step back in time, enjoy the beautiful scenery, stretch your legs on the boardwalk, visit with longtime locals, and enjoy our museum depicting early life in Elfin Cove. Finish exploring the Cove while enjoying some locally smoked fish.  Be sure to keep your camera at the ready as you experience the rich variety of commercial fishing boats, scenery and wildlife.  You never know know what amazing picture will be just around the next corner.  Before you continue your journey beyond Elfin Cove, stop in and enjoy a drink with your new found friends. You may have only stopped for a day or two but Elfin Cove will call to you for a lifetime.
