Experience the North Pacific’s Emerald Isle

Referred to by locals as the Emerald Isle for its rolling green mountains, Kodiak is a verdant paradise. Nearly leveled by the Good Friday Earthquake, today Kodiak has fully recovered as one of the top fishing ports in the US for salmon, halibut, crab, and more.

Originally inhabited by the Alutiiq natives, Kodiak has been both a site for Russian fur trading and a naval base during World Word II. Remnants of each of these influences can still be seen today as you walk the streets of Kodiak. From the blue cupolas of the Holy Resurrection Orthodox Cathedral to the Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park, Kodiak is a history buff’s dream. Step into the Alutiiq Museum and Archeological Repository to explore the largest collection of Alutiiq artifacts in the state, or stroll along the docks at St. Paul Boat Harbor and explore the Kodiak Maritime Museum.

A short distance from downtown, the rough gravel roads that surround Kodiak beg to be explored by Jeep, ATV, or mountain bike. Back at sea level, hop on a charter boat to see minke, humpback, orca, and even gray whales. Throughout the island, you can spot its most famous resident—the Kodiak bear—seen most often hunting salmon along the waterways. The richness of these waters attracts more than just bears. With more than 240 species of birds—including eagles—Kodiak is a birder’s paradise. From rich history to scenic coastlines, you’ll find plenty to write home about.
