    Favorite thing: I'm not sure how this science center works, are they like able to host visitors anytime, or do you need to book time in advance. They do arrange all kinds of environmental education for the kids and educate younger people.

    Fondest memory: This is very interesting place and I highly recommend visiting there. It has a broad history of Exxon Valdez for example and it can provide everykind of information of marine life. The workers are nice and wise, this is very unique place:)

    Fishing

    by Scandic Written Apr 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Exxon Valdez Oil Spill really affected to the fishing industry of Prince William Sound. Cordova was one of the cities that suffered most. It hasn't recovered yet, but it will heal. It may take centuries though and some of the species won't probably never be like they were before Exxon Valdez.
    But the fishing is coming back. It is not anymore the main source of living to Cordova, but it attracts tourists to the town.

    Fondest memory: From the small boat harbor you can book your own fishing trips and decided whater you would like to catch a halibut or maybe even a shark. Cordova has the largest wet land delta on the coast of north America, with hundred's of streams, beaver dams and rivers winding through the delta, for the great runs of Silver Salmon, Sockeye, Pinks, Dollies and Cutthoat.

    Eyak Lake

    Favorite thing: If someone had never been to Cordova before I would recommend taking them to Child's Glacier and Sheridan Glacier. Both are unique in their own ways. At Child's Glacier you can watch it calve off into the Copper River. At Sheridan Glacier you can walk on part of it.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memories of Cordova are the years that I lived there as a child and teenager. Mostly I miss my friend, Pam, and the beautiful, serene scenery.
