As reported in previous posts, the southern most US Customs station is Ketchikan. They will meet you about anywhere on the island reachable by road with a phone call and there isn't a cruise ship
coming into port.
The next port north is Sitka, I believe.
Both Ketchikan and Rrince Rupert on the Canadian side seem to operate like the old days, very congenial. The lower 48 and BC crossings seem be an escalating **** fight over visas, guns
and ammo. Those crossing by water
seem to be in cross hairs.
I see you list your homeport as Alert Bay? A couple of years ago, we had a great conversation in Port McNeill with a skipper
of a ketch
from Alert Bay that also was a winter caretaker at Sullivan Bay. By any chance, that would be you?

There seams to be one port in the area but it is a long sail from the border. We are looking at moving to the area and would be weekend sailing around he fjords so would not want to have to go a few hundred miles north just to clear in.
Canadian registered boat.
Anyone know the area?
