DIPAC is one of the few accessible salmon hatcheries in the state for visitors to see. Located just 3 miles from the downtown area, it is an easy stop on your way too or from the Mendenhall Glacier and whale watching excursions out the road.
DIPAC's Macaulay Salmon hatchery houses over 150 local marine species in our various aquariums. Our 5,000 gallon tank, seen here, is a great way to see eye to eye with some of Alaska's large undersea critters.
