The George Inlet Cannery
The George Inlet Cannery property is owned and operated by CFC. This historic landmark is truly impressive to see. The Cannery operated from 1913 until 1958 when salmon was in huge demand, and the Cannery had the inlet full of salmon outside. During its years of operation, the Cannery was a self-sustained community of 200 people. Today, you can see the little cove where the Cannery still sits, walk the great trails in the rain forest of the Tongass National Forest, and tour the original Cannery with all the original equipment inside. Together, with Allen Marine, we offer five to six “Taste of Alaska” tours of the Cannery a day during the tourism season. After each tour is complete, we recommend picking up an Alaska-made product at the Galley gift shop for a souvenir. The Cannery can also be booked as a venue for large events such as weddings.
The Village Store is a local gift shop in Saxman, Alaska. This store offers a glimpse into the lives and art of Alaska Natives through a variety of unique, local handmade art created by Alaska Natives like totems, drums, beadwork, and jewelry. The Village Store also offers an assortment of souvenirs like t-shirts, keychains, caps, dreamcatchers, and so much more. We let the tourists take a piece of our heritage home with them, and we do it all with a warm smile and service.
