Missing this take out by taking a wrong channel has dire consequences. Either way, the take out involves some serious logistical planning, as the town of Cordova is only accessible by Alaska State Ferry or commercial airline. You will need to coordinate a driver and vehicle to arrive in Cordova by ferry, the day before your takeout date. Then everyone and all gear will board the return ferry to Valdez for the drive home or to Anchorage. You could send just gear and vehicle by ferry with people flying Alaska Airlines from Cordova to Anchorage.
