Point Bridget State Park

Point Bridget State Park - (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelJuneau’s only state park is Point Bridget State Park, a 2850-acre unit overlooking Berners Bay and Lynn Canal 39 miles north of the downtown area. The park was created in 1988 after a decade and a half of lobbying by locals and conservationists alike who thought Alaska’s state capital should be home to a state park. Point Bridget is an incredibly scenic area, a combination of meadows, cliffs, spectacular views, salmon spawning streams, rocky beaches and the sea. The park offers great wildlife viewing opportunities, both on land and at sea.

Sea Lions At Point Bridget

undefined

Sea lions are another predator group next to the humpback whales and orcas that shows up in large numbers for the annual feeding frenzy on holligans and spawning herring in Berners Bay in spring. In a collaborative effort they dive in unison to corral and capture the fish.
