Get to Know One of Alaska's Main Fishing Hubs

Kodiak is located in the northwestern part of Kodiak Island, Alaska’s largest island. Kodiak is also the largest city on the island, with scenic views of the ocean and beautiful green landscapes off in the background. When visiting, you will certainly understand how the Sitka spruce, alder, birch, and cottonwood trees all led to the island’s nickname of “Alaska’s Emerald Isle”.

Right from the get-go will you notice Kodiak’s famous fishing industry, as the port is home to Alaska’s largest fishing fleet of over 700 commercial fishing vessels. This is the perfect place to see Alaska ‘in the raw’, as the city revolves around fishing: whether fishing for it, processing it, shipping it, or protecting the local fisherman. Your ship will dock just south of downtown, so on your way in, you will pass by the local fish processing facilities. Summer, otherwise known as “salmon season”, is the perfect time to visit and see the town liven up with events and festivals. Popular Kodiak shore excursions include flightseeing, fishing, and wildlife viewing.
