By boat, it is a 18 mile trek from Whittier. Check local tide reports to determine the most ideal arrival and departure times.

The topography is very rugged, which limits hiking in the area. Visitors can bring kayaks to explore the bay and along the coast of Port Wells, but should consult the local tide reports in advance for their safety.

Fishing is fair for pink salmon in late July and early August in freshwater streams and the saltwater of the bay. Saltwater fishing is possible for halibut and red snapper (rockfish) near Pigot Bay and the western shore of Esther Island.

Pigot Bay also offers some good shrimping spots. Digging for butter clams is possible on the few gravel beaches at the head of the bay. Hunting for deer and bear is allowed in designated seasons with the proper permits. Blueberries and raspberries are also available for picking in season.
