Explore the beauty, culture and history of Alaska during this memorable journey to Kodiak.
Depart the pier for the scenic drive into Kodiak, passing Cannery Row and the boat harbor along the way. Upon arrival in Kodiak, a stop will be made at the Baranov Museum, which offers an eclectic blend of native, Russian and American history.
Next, you will continue on to the Alutiiq Museum for an in-depth look at native Alaskan culture. From here, you will cross over the bridge to neighboring Near Island for a visit to the Alaska Fisheries Research Center. Here, you will enjoy the aquarium and touch tank, a popular year-round attraction for visitors to the area. After a short drive north, you will arrive at Ft. Abercrombie State Park, an historic World War II site. The park offers a wonderful bunker museum of wartime memorabilia, as well as beautiful land and sea views.
Your tour will conclude at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium, where you will view a lively performance by either St. Innocents Academy, a local group of dancers and musicians, or the Kodiak Island Drummers, a multi-aged group of drummers and performers.
Following your visit, you will re-board your school bus for the return drive to the pier.
