Sand Point – Largest Fishing Fleet in the Chain

Known as Qagun Tayagungin, Sand Point is the largest community in the area and is located in the eastern portion of the Aleutian Chain. A treasure nestled in the heart of the Alaska Peninsula, the community of 1,000 rests on the northwest corner of Popof Island. Sand Point was originally a cod-fishing station and trading post, a collective of the surrounding Aleuts and many Scandinavian fishermen that plied their trade in the area. Today, the community boasts the largest fishing fleet in the Aleutian Chain. Visit Sand Point on a 9 Day Aleutian Islands Adventure, or spend three days in Sand Point and catch the ferry back to Homer.
