False Pass Things to Do

  • Shishaldin Volcano

    Shishaldin Volcano rises 9372 ft and is one of those perfect cone volcanos. It is on Unimak Island, though you can not see it from the village of False Pass. You can see it from Grant's Point in the Izembek Refuge near Cold Bay, and you will see it as your voyage continues toward Dutch Harbor.

  • Thar be Dragons!!

    This Photo is (I think) of Cape Pankof on a peninsula that sticks out from Unimak Island. To me, it looks like a dragon in repose. His head down on the ground, the long neck, and then his massive body, with his wing folded neatly by his side. Please do not wake him, as he might attack the boat.I love old maps, the kind that state "Thar be Dragons"...

  • Changable Weather

    As we departed False Pass on this dreary, drizzly day, the sun started peaking out and we were treated to a rainbow.The Aleutian Islands are sometimes dubbed "The place were storms are born" but as you can see, it can also be the place where the rainbow starts.

  • Send your friends a postcard from the...

    Friends love to get postcards from exotic places, and Alaska may be exotic enough, but write a few cards on the boat, then post them from False Pass in the Aleutian Chain. It still costs only 23 cents either from Anchorage or way out inFalse Pass.A great souvenier for stamp collectors.

    General Simon Bolivar Baker built a runway and a secret base on Unimak Island during WWII to stage bombing runs on the occupied islands of Kiska and Attu. in what is known as the thousand mile war.

False Pass Shopping

  • Good Bargains on the Dock

    The villagers of False Pass were more industrious than in any of the previous villages we stopped at. With the ferry only making monthly appearances, we thought there would be more of this dockside selling. Glass floats from fishing nets, grass weaving, sealskin hats. There were some wonderful bargains here. I have seen the prices in the tourist...

  • Trade paper for sand

    These two cuties were selling sand dollars they had found on the beach. A dollar for a dollar. The girls were irresistable, but I am not quite sure of the names. I think they are Coral and Jewel, but it could just as easily be Pearl and Jewel. No matter though, they are very cute.False Pass was the first village that people greeted the boat with...
