The waterfront in Valdez is set up to accommodate fishermen and visitors out for a stroll. Restaurants, shops, boat and kayak rentals line one side of North Harbor Drive, while across the street the public promenade offers fine views of—and access to—the small boat harbor where you may see fishermen clean their catch. Many fishing charters, tour boats and kayak rentals operate out of the Valdez harbor. Valdez is accessible via the Richardson Highway or the Alaska Marine Highway.
