Kodiak Island: Wildlife Viewing and Photographer’s Dream…abundant wildlife, breath taking scenery, and pristine wilderness. Kodiak is wild, remote and stunningly beautiful, Alaska’s famed “Emerald Isle.” Accessible only by plane or ferry, Kodiak is about 252 air miles south-west of Anchorage in the Gulf of Alaska. It is the second-largest island in the United States, with an area of 3,595 square miles. Kodiak Island has rugged lush green mountains that rise 4,000 feet out of the Pacific Ocean, shoreline accented with fiords, and deep glacial valleys. Our Alaska Kodiak Guides camp is a short air charter flight from the city of Kodiak to Ugak Bay.
Our clients stay in a comfortable wilderness cabin with home-made meals. You may watch Kodiak bears or whales breaching from the deck of our wilderness cabin. Guides will take clients on boat charters cruising the shore and/or hike up valleys and streams exploring for wildlife.
