Turnagain Arm


Turnagain Arm south of Anchorage has the second highest tides in North America after Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. Each time the tide goes out it exposes extensive mudflats which are composed of glacial silt carried down by rivers. These mudflats exhibit a quicksand-like quality and it’s extremely dangerous to venture out onto them during low tide because of the very real possibility of becoming seriously stuck.
