This includes many species of sea ducks, like the Harlequin & Golden Eye, the greater Pacific Loon, Arctic and Aleutian Terns, Fork-tailed Storm-Petrels and Tufted and Horned Puffins. Red-faced Cormorants and thousands of Common Murres and Black-legged Kittiwakes are assembling near their nesting sites on Gull Island.

"A Once in a Lifetime Experience

"Our first time to Alaska and we couldn't have asked for anything more... The view was amazing and so peaceful. Throughout our stay we would see otters, eagles and even a bear across the cove... You really feel like you're part of a family.
