Safety Cove State Marine Park

Western Side of Day Harbor
Seward, AK 99664


Safety Cove is located along the western side of Day Harbor to the east of Resurrection Bay, a twenty-eight mile boat ride from Seward. The park's 960 acres include the cove's marine environment and an upland spruce, hemlock and alder forest. An attractive geologic feature of this park is a three acre fresh water lake just above a gravel storm berm at the head of the cove.

Safety Cove SMP offers excellent beach camping as well as safe anchorage for recreational boats. Upland exploration is also an appealing activity in the park, with excellent views of Ellsworth Glacier, an arm of the Sargent Icefield, near the cove's entrance. Fresh water can be taken from the lake at the head of the cove.
