Beach Combing

It is always a quiet adventure to explore Kodiak’s beaches.  Shells and curious objects of all kinds are found on the black (and occasionally white) sand beaches.  Sea glass and remnants from the commercial fishing industry make their way to shore for your discovery. 


Kodiak Island has a wide selection of accessible surf breaks – perhaps the best in Alaska! Most of these tend to be fairly inconsistent except during the winter months.  Surfers are sometimes spotted off Mill Bay just a few miles from downtown Kodiak, but more often they frequent areas north of Kodiak City and along the scenic coast road south to Cape Chiniak. Surfer Beach in Pasagshak is a popular destination for surfers year round.  A few hardy souls even brave the frigid winter waters to surf Kodiak. 


A beautiful 9-hole golf course at the foot of emerald green mountains is owned and operated by the U.S. Coast Guard. There you will find a driving range, putting greens, snack bar and pro-shop. The course is open to the public and, weather permitting, opens May 15 each year.


Hunting is a time honored tradition and a way of life on Kodiak Island.  Local families and those who practice a subsistence lifestyle count on their harvest to provide food for their families alongside fresh fish.  Sitka blacktail deer, bear and goat hunting are all carefully managed by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. For information regarding hunting in the Kodiak Island Archipelago, contact the ADF&G (907) 486-1880or  Besides large game hunts, waterfowl, small game such as rabbit and ptarmigan are also popular species.
