Jutting into the Bay on the southern tip of the Kenia Peninsula is the mysterious ghost town of Portlock, Alaska. Legend has it that this once peaceful and successful canary town, hugging the coast of Chatham Bay, fell victim to a primal (perhaps supernatural) darkness between the 1920s and 1940s, suffering bizarre tragedies and disappearances, which culminated in the shuttering and abandonment of the town around 1950. And there it sits to this day. Like a Ghost.

Some say it was a natural transition. Others, including some locals and natives of the area, lay the blame at the Nantinaq – a fearsome and elusive creature from Aleut legend.

From murdered loggers to giants in the woods, we dig through the original sources to get to the heart of this hairy darkness. So, get out your Belief Hole compass and set a course with us for Alaska Bay as we explore this haunting mystery, trying to separate fact from fiction in the terrifying legend of Portlock Alaska.
