Activated March 1, 1902, the Sentinel Light Station was one of the first light stations in Alaska. The lighthouse and island are located 25 miles northwest of Juneau, which is just a few minutes ride in a helicopter.
Thanks to the efforts of the Gastineau Channel Historical Society whose members have been working to preserve the historical site and building for the past several years, couples seeking a truly unique and historical location to have their Alaska destination/elopement wedding ceremony can now chose to do so on Sentinel Island.
