Alaska Islands & Ocean Visitor Center
A state-of-the-art center focused on marine life. Discover the wonders of marine life through interactive exhibits and enjoy naturalist-led walks to Bishop's Beach on Kachemak Bay. Admission is free. Our friendly staff will offer tips on wildlife viewing, wildlife refuge information and points of interest. Join us for one of our Ranger-guided talks or walks or take a self-guided tour of the Visitor Center, featuring sculpted re-creations of wildlife and settings and interactive stations, simulating a journey through the nation's most far-reaching wildlife refuge. We also feature an award-winning movie, the Journey of the Tiglax; a nature-oriented bookstore, and outdoor trails to Bishop's Beach through adjoining wetlands.
