At the end of the Aleutian Chain Unalaska can be reached from Kodiak in the fall and spring by an Alaska Marine ferry.
The port is home to a busy fishing and seafood processing industry as well as being popular with sport fishing enthusiasts.
Wherever there are fish you will find birds and Unalaska is no exception.
Bird and wildlife tours as well as hiking and beachcombing are popular activities.
For those looking for an alternative to the outdoor activities there is also a cultural and historic vein waiting to be tapped.
