Yachting Views: Lituya Bay, Southern Alaska (Video)

Apart from a minor date correction, this is a re-issue of an existing video describing our first visit to one of the more interesting and potentially hazardous anchorages we have visited.

Lituya Bay is a fjord located on the coast of the south-east part of the U.S. state of Alaska. It is 14.5 km long and 3.2 km wide at its widest point. The bay was noted in 1786 by Jean-François de Lapérouse, who named it Port des Français. Twenty-one of his men perished in the tidal current in the bay.
