When approaching Juneau, Alaska's capital city, look starboard and spot the
landmark ruins of the A.J. (Alaska-Juneau) Gold Mine on the side of the
mountain. As you travel up Gastineau Channel towards Juneau, you will see the
Juneau-Douglas bridge (66.4 feet on a 0.0 tide), a graph at the base of the
bridge measures the current height. When leaving Juneau, exit south, down
Gastineau Channel. The shallow channel crosses the Mendenhall Bar north of
Aurora Harbor, connecting to Auke Bay (Fritz Cove), goes dry daily at tides less
than 10 feet. It is marked during the summer, and may be used by small craft
during extreme high tides, but it is not recommended.
