Kodiak Island is the second largest island in the United States, it was also the first Russian capital of Alaska. Saint-Paul is one of the top 3 fishing ports in the USA. On its own, it is home to a fleet of 800 trawlers active in all seasons: summer is the season for salmon, cod and halibut, fall is the season for king crabs, winter that for snow crab, spring being the herring season. This mountainous island has many deep bays, hunting grounds for the huge Kodiak bear in search of salmon.
Our navigation will take us from the Kodiak Archipelago to Katmai National Park where bears proliferate, estimated to number over 2,000. Its direct access to the ocean makes it the place of passage for the summer migration of a very dense marine fauna: orcas, sea lions, seals and many species of whales, from the beluga to the blue whale.
Please note that the vagaries of the weather require you to adapt to sometimes rough seas and could modify the program indicated. Sailing experience would be required (however do not confuse the adaptation of the first few days with recurring seasickness).
