A Migration Celebration!


Whale Fest Kodiak celebrates the return of Eastern Pacific Gray Whales to Alaskan waters. Here on scenic Kodiak Island in the Gulf of Alaska, we are privileged to have nearly all of this population pass by on their journey north - the longest migration route of any mammal on earth. Some of these gray whales remain here all summer to feed before returning south. This celebration spreads out to all species of whales and other marine mammals and birds.

Whale Fest Kodiak 2014, will mark the 18th year that the festival has been running. It is not only anticipated by locals, but also attracts Eco-tourists who travel to Kodiak to take part in the festivities. Whale Fest events include scientific forums, harbor tours, marine mammal-inspired music, traditional Native art and archaeology, various children's programs, and guided hikes out at Narrow Cape near Ugak Bay. This is the only area in Alaska where you can stand on ground and watch hundreds of whales go by. Most of our programs are led by volunteers and are available at no charge.

Our festival welcomes Spring and helps to get people outdoors and experience the thrill of seeing marine wildlife up close. We publish "Whale Alerts" in the local newspaper, as well as public service announcements on local radio stations so people know where to go to see whales. The educational forums teach environment conservation and inform people of all ages how we are all connected to the ocean and have the responsibility to care for it and it's inhabitants.Through our efforts, many people have been able to see whales for the first time and have learned how to identify what species they are seeing.
