We visited Kodiak on board of the Azamara Quest. Kodiak island is home to about 6,000 people and about 8,000 bears. To get to Kodiak you can fly commercial, use the Alaska Marine Highway or a cruise ship. The island's main economy is commercial fishing and not tourism. When arriving at the island your mode of transportation might be by school bus. The preferred mode of transportation is still by float plane, and if you have never taken a float plane, it is an experience and one of the best ways to see the country side.
Wild life you will see during the season are whale, puffins, Sitka deer and the Kodiak beer. Salmon and Halibut are the most common fish.
The Bridge and River tour is a scenic 3-hour bicycle tour will take you from the Upper West Side of New York City up and over the George Washington Bridge for a ride along the river on Route 9W. Get the full touring experience and leave New York City for a few hours. During the ride, we make stops at Grants Tomb Memorial on the Upper West Side.
