Map of Holgate Cabin (166 KB)
Holgate Cabin is located on the northeasterly shore of Holgate Arm in Aialik Bay. It is approximately a 2-4 hour boat trip or 35-minute flight from Seward.
The cabin sits on a small bluff above a cobble beach. There are spectacular views of Holgate Glacier from the cabin’s front porch and you may be treated to sounds of the glacier calving. There is good berry picking in the open spruce forest that surrounds the cabin. Bears, attracted by the berries, are commonly seen on the beach and mountain goats can often be spotted on Holgate Head. The entrance to this bay is a shallow shelf that attracts large numbers of seabirds and an occasional Humpback Whale.
