Long Island - Military Outpost


(907) 486-8766

A Treasure and Whale of a Journey
Exclusive Price: $374 (1 person)

Whale TailThis 6-hour journey begins charting a course for Long Island.  The island, it self a treasure to explore, mingle amongst the historic remnants of Ft. Tidball with the wildflowers and bird sanctuaries.  The fort, a World War II coastal artillery fortress, is now shrouded in decades of moss covered Sitka spruce trees.  The scattered Quonsets huts built in the 1940’s still lingers and a 6 inch gun now shattered in pieces as a cast off - both serving a purpose to shelter and defend. Fireweed, chocolate lilies and lupine wildflowers soften the hillside while puffins and kittiwakes all make the morning a ‘treasure and truly memorable’.  The 360° angle provides the hikers a rare opportunity to look for Hawaii on the horizon.

After hearty lunch, it is off again – this time in search of the pods of whales to include fin, Orcas, humpbacks, minke, sei and gray whales.   Whale Fest opened the season (in April) for whales migrating north from South America.  Look out on the horizon for spouts or blows and know where ever there is one, there will be a couple more following. Whales getting a late start heading south will still be in Kodiak waters through November.

The marine mammals and year around residents of the Stellar sea lions, sea otters, harbor seals, Dall’s and white-sided porpoise will also be easy to spot in the pristine waters of Kodiak.

The Signature Tour Package also includes a Museum Pass to the Kodiak Military History Museum located in Ft. Abercrombie State Historical Park.  The museum is only open on weekends however with sufficient notice, a volunteer will open the museum (during the week) with a group of 3 or more. We will gladly substitute the pass with another museum such as the Alutiiq or Baranov Museums if schedules do not align.
