BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • When conditions are right, pros say Point Carrew is one of the best surfing spots around. Just watch out for dangerous rip currents.
  • The Point is another of Yakutat's drivable beaches, making it convenient for most visitors, who don't have immediate access to a boat or bush plane.
  • Contact Icy Waves surf shop in town for the best info on what you need to bring.
While no one would call the waters around Yakutat balmy, they're not as chilly as you might think. Thanks to the Japanese current, which pumps temps up to the mid-50s and even 60s in summer. Still, surfing here ALWAYS requires a wetsuit, and a good one.
