Dutch-Harbor is the harbor and port area that lies within the city limits of Unalaska in the Aleutian Islands. Known as "Dutch" by locals, it's connected to Unalaska by a bridge. Dutch Harbor is the only deep draft, ice-free port from Unimak Pass west to Adak and north to the headwaters of the Bering Straits. It's a designated "Port of Refuge" that provides year-round protection for disabled or distressed vessels. Dutch Harbor includes Dutch Harbor Naval Operating Base and Fort Mears, U.S. Army, a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Nearly one million tons of frozen seafood is shipped annually from Dutch Harbor to markets in North America, Europe and Asia. This makes it first in the U.S. in the "quantity of catch landed" and first or second in the nation in "value of the catch" for 22 years in a row. Dutch Harbor is part of the city of Unalaska, which has a population of 4,376. About 59 percent of the city's residents live on Amaknak Island. Unalaska and the surrounding area is known for it's breathtaking scenery, as well as its' fantastic fishing opportunities. Other things to do include hiking, tide-pooling, wildlife viewing and birding. Unalaska is home to an annual 4th of July parade and fireworks and an Aleutian Life Festival.

Average temperatures range from 20 to 60 degrees F., but wind chill factors often make it feel frigid. Winter squalls may produce wind gusts of up 120 miles per hour. Summer weather is much cooler here than in southeast Alaska, and summer fog is persistent. The islands in this part of southern Alaska receive abundant rainfall, with 263 rainy days per year.
