King-Cove is located on the Aleutian Islands off the southern coast of Alaska. As of the 2010 census, the population was 938 residents. King Cove sits on the Pacific side of the islands about 18 miles southwest of Cold Bay. It is about 600 miles southwest of Anchorage. The fishing community of King Cove is situated in a narrow valley surrounded by rugged mountains reaching down to the waters edge. The location of King Cove on the Aleutians puts it in the midst of a storm corridor, which often brings extreme fog and high winds. The citys economy depends on the year-round commercial fishing and seafood processing industries. King Cove is home to Peter Pan's Seafood, which is one of the largest cannery operations in Alaska. Up to 500 non-residents are brought up to work in the cannery at peak season. The community of King Cove offers a full-service dockage and marina for commercial fishing, cargo, passenger and recreational vehicles. Large vessels, including the state ferry, cruise ships and cargo vessels can moor at the deep water port. All five species of salmon are abundant in the waters around King Cove.

Surrounding areas: Cold Bay, Alaska (18.9 mi)
