Long Beach is a stretch of beach along Keku Strait a few miles north of Kake. This is a good spot for spotting whale activity offshore, as there are a few rocks out in the water that the whale like to rub against. Generally you would see humpback in this area, but once in awhile you might see a pod of orca.

Drive north on Silver Spike Road Turn right on Church Street and head uphill. You’ll end up driving about 3.5 miles. Once you see an area with a compost pile, turn left and drive on another logging road until you can pull off and park. Long Beach is on your left.
