About City of Unalaska
Whether the sun is setting behind snow-covered mountains, shining on the rich green of our summertime valleys or trying to break through the chaos of a hurricane force storm, Unalaska is breathtaking in all of its natural beauty and inherent charm.
Located just 50 miles from the Great Circle route, Unalaska, the 12th largest incorporated city in Alaska, is 800 miles southwest of Anchorage in the heart of the healthy and robust North Pacific/Bering Sea fisheries. Our community is a vibrant mix of industry and history connected by 44 miles of roads linking our port, harbors and private docks with local businesses and our thriving residential community of 4,768. We work hard to provide steady support to one of the busiest and most prosperous stretches of coastline in Alaska.
For the last 30 years, Unalaska’s economy has been based primarily on commercial fishing, seafood processing, fleet services and marine transportation. The Port of Dutch Harbor is the only deep draft, ice-free port from Unimak Pass west to Adak and north to the headwaters of the Bering Straits. Our port has been designated a “Port of Refuge” and provides year-round protection for disabled or distressed vess...els as well as ground/warehouse storage and transshipment opportunities for the thousands of vessels that fish or transit the waters surrounding the Aleutian Islands. Annually, more than 1.7 billion pounds of frozen seafood is shipped to domestic and export markets in North America, Europe and Asia, making the Port of Dutch Harbor first in the nation in the quantity of catch landed and first or second in the nation in value of the catch for more than 20 years.
Life is good on our island. We are the home of a creative, friendly, industrious and positive community, and a Blue Ribbon of Excellence Award school system. No wonder many who first come here to work choose to make Undiscovered-Unforgettable-Unalaska their home.
