Access to the parcel is by boat or float plane and is restricted to mid to higher tide cycles. Depending on boat draft and tide height this could be limited to several hours after or before low tide and through a high tide cycle. Water taxi operators report needing a 4-6' high tide to access the channel into Little Tutka and an even higher tide to reach the rear lots. The channel along the west side of the island is deeper and likely provides the best place for access and moorage.

Municipal Authority

Electricity is in the area. There are no public water and sewer services available. Water is typically handled by private wells and sewer is typically handled by private septic systems which will have to conform to Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) requirements.


The island has approximately 1400 feet of shoreline, which  consists of a low to medium high rock face bank. The island is most accessible at lower grass covered tidal affected areas at both the north and south ends. Site terrain is mostly level, somewhat hummocky and gently rolling over moss covered fallen trees, rocks, etc. to the edge of the mostly low, steep rocky shoreline down to the water. The overall terrain provides a buildable location above inundation from tide but also readily accessible to the water and exposed beach at lower tides.
