In 1907, a group of Norwegians started a whaling station on Akutan Island near Unalaska. Today, you can fly to Akutan and ride the Alaska Marine Highway ferry to Unalaska to watch for whales and sea lion haulouts. (This requires planning in advance, as the ferry only runs twice a month during summer).
