There have been tremendous improvements to cell phone and internet coverage in Prince William Sound. There are still gaps in the coverage. Depending on our route it may take a day or two to respond to an email or voice message.

Auklet Charter Services is based in Cordova but we work out of all Prince William Sound ports: Cordova, Valdez and Whittier. This means your trip does not have to start and finish in the same community.
