Whittier is located approximately 70 miles southeast of Anchorage, in Prince William Sound, on the northeast shore of the Kenai Peninsula, at the head of Passage Canal. Seward is approximately 125 miles southwest and Valdez is 97 miles northeast. Whittier was an active U.S. Army port until 1960. Most of the town’s buildings reflect its military origins, including the 14-story Hodge building (now known as Begich Towers) which was converted from army housing into condominiums in 1964. The transfer time between Whittier and Anchorage is approximately 1 1/2 – 2 hours, via the Whittier Access Tunnel.
