About Kodiak, Alaska
The City of Kodiak is located on the N.E. end of Kodiak Island. 250 miles S.W. of Anchorage with travel to the mainland available via Alaska Airlines (brief 50-minute plane ride) or the Alaska Marine Highway System (ferry service) to the City of Homer on the Kenai Peninsula. The island population ranges from roughly 13,000 permanent residents up to 15,000 in the summertime. Kodiak offers great schools with a brand-new state-of-the-art High School recently built in 2014. Shopping options include a mixture of big box stores including Walmart and Safeway, plus a host of local favorites including Spenard Builders Supply, Sutliff's Tru-Value Hardware, Kodiak Marine Supply, and more. The city features an Olympic-style indoor swimming pool, a new public library, and a well-supported civic arts program and senior center. Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center provides full medical services for island residents, with several eye care and dental providers on the island as well. There are 5 native villages located around the island accessible only by boat or plane, along with the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge which takes up almost two-thirds of the island’s land mass. Kodiak is home to the world-famous Kodiak Brown Bear, boasting a population of over 3,000 bears (or almost 1 for every square mile of the island!). Wildlife abounds with bears, bald eagles, foxes, black tail deer, a multitude of other birds, whales, dolphins, and more! There is a movie theater, auditorium for concerts and plays, many delicious restaurants, and even a 9-hole golf course for entertainment opportunities.
