If you're going across Kachemak Bay, a boat ride or paddle to Gull Island is a must. This is the second largest black-legged kittiwake rookery in Alaska. This means a lot of gulls. Offshore you will see pelagic, double-crested and red-faced cormorants, common murres, marbled murrelets and tufted and horned puffins. Often times you can see bald eagles hunting for birds here which will create total chaos at the rookery and a spectacular show of flight from the birds.
