Kodiak Island boasts some of the world’s most breathtaking outdoor photography landscapes. Torrential waterfalls cascade through glacially-carved, statuesque mountains that are covered in green grass, vibrant wildflowers, and abundant wildlife. Kodiak Brown Bears, mountain goats, Sitka Blacktail deer, as well as foxes, hares, weasels and river otters all can be seen in and around the mountains of Old Harbor.
The waters around Kodiak are filled with marine wildlife and natural beauty that will satisfy the desires of every novice, amateur and professional photographer. You can expect to see humpback, gray, and killer whales, Stellar Sea Lions and Harbor Seals, numerous species of marine birds, jellies, starfish, and every type of fish found in the North Pacific.
The waters of Kodiak Island near Old Harbor also offer rare and unique photography opportunities that capture Alaska’s native and non-native history. Russia’s first settlement in Alaska was located in majestic Three Saints Bay, which is a 20 minute boat ride from Old Harbor. There is an old commercial whaling station on nearby Sitkalidak Island, and a famed Russian Orthodox Church that survived the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 1964.
