We stopped here on a whim on our way back from Seward. Just as we were getting in the car we saw Belugas! To get close to water you have to cross railroad tracks, so you have to be very attentive as these are active railroad tracks. We ended up stuck on the other side of the tracks for about 10 minutes while the train approached. We ended up coming back another day and waited around for about 45 minutes before we saw belugas again! If you want to see Belugas look at the time tables for the tides. The tide comes in very fast and the Belugas come in with it, but when the water is too low you won't see any Belugas. If you have an hour to spare wait around and see if you can spot anything! Make sure to bring binoculars as it can be difficult to see the whales from a distance.

PLEASE follow the signs posted for your safety. On the day of our visit we did not see any belugas but did witness the emergency response teams retrieve someone who'd ignored the signs, went past the railroad tracks, and up to the edge, only to find themselves in an unfortunate outcome. The entire area is beautiful, but there is no picture worth your life.

Must see!! Did get a few blimps of beluga whales, but regardless the place was beautiful. There is a clay beach and the views of the mountains are wonderful!

This is the perfect place to stretch your legs and take some pictures after a long drive. They have some beautiful clay beaches and rocks to take some fun pictures. The views there are beautiful.

Foggy day during our visit but the view of the water and mountains were pretty. However, not much else there and we did not see any beluga whales while there.

We returned to this point several ties during our visit to Anchorage. On a clear day, when you look across the water, you can see Denali Mountain. It's a great place to see the big changes in tide that occur in the Turnagain Arm. Every tie we were there, we saw Dall Sheep on the hillside above us. All around wonderful place!

This is such a beautiful drive between Anchorage and Seward. The Chugach mountain range gleaming with snow and the beautiful waters of Turnagain arm. There is parking and multiple lookouts. Choose your fav spot for a memorable click. It was crazily windy, we could barely stand with the force of wind knocking you back. Its a beautiful place.

Cool place to stop off of Seward Highway. Amazing vistas and watching the tides. The kids could stay here all day climbing on the rocks and playing on the beach. Very windy. TIP - look carefully both ways before walking over the train tack

My wife and I live in Anchorage and we have visited Beluga Point numerous times since 1994. It is located on the Seward Highway that originates in Anchorage. It is a turn out on the right side of the higway (as you drive South) and is located approximately 14 miles South of Anchorage. Just the scenery of the drive to Beluga Point ( and of course the beauty continues for miles heading further South) along the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet is spectacular. In fact it has been rated as one of the most 50 beautiful and scenic drives in the entire United States. We love the autumn of the year to drive the Seward Highway.

Unfortunately the time we arrived at Beluga Point the tide was out and hence no beluga at beluga point. That how ever did not stop visitors from gathering and thanking photos of the beauty on Turnagain Arm.
