Getting Here and Around in Kodiak
Getting Here and Around
Access to the island is via the Alaska Marine Highway (which makes several stops a week) or by plane. A few roads stretch out of town, perfect for a day of sightseeing. The action, however, is in town. Kodiak is the entry point for Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge.
Your first stop in exploring the island should be the Kodiak Island Convention & Visitors Bureau. Here you can pick up brochures, pamphlets, and lists of all the visitor services on Kodiak and the surrounding islands, and get help with planning your adventures. If you want to strike out and hike the local trails, there's an informative Hiking and Birding Guide published by the Kodiak Audubon Society.
