About The Auke Bay Loading Facility

The Auke Bay Loading Facility (ABLF) is a work station that is located down from the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal (approximately a 20 minute boat ride from Statter Harbor). Complete with a 180’ drive-down dock, cranes, power, and water, and long-term or short-term storage capabilities for various necessities, it is the ideal locale for loading and unloading vessels with materials (groceries, fishing gear, etc.) and performing maintenance on vessels. There is also a commercial launch ramp available at the ABLF. To use this launch ramp, you must purchase a commercial launch ramp permit ($250) and schedule with the Statter Harbor office a reservation for using the launch ramp. Click on Auke Bay Loading Facility at the top of this page to be able to purchase your commercial permit online.

General Rules

The ABLF is a RESERVATION ONLY facility. Any vessels who moor at the ABLF without a reservation will be asked to leave.  Please note, this is strictly a working facility; there is no moorage allowed; someone in your work party must be with the vessel at all times. If you are using the ABLF to load and unload materials and you do not need a crane, please keep the cranes clear for others who may need to use them.
