  • 5 star for sure. This place is amazing. You can watch over the salmon is such close distance. All four of us liked this place so much that we visit the Hatchery four times within three days. We did not see bears but there are salmon group, sea otter and even four sea lions in distance. Especially if your visit is in the early morning, the fog makes harbor so pretty that you can make a post card with it.
  • Very cool to see the salmon and all the other wildlife they attract; sealions, bears, eagles. Also a beautiful view when you walk the trail behind it.
  • A very cool place. 👍🏻

Because of the many fish here, it's a good place to watch for seals as well. Have seen brown bears around too, so keep your eyes peeled.
  • No fish when I went, but supposedly it's very cool when there is
