Located in the Gulf of Alaska some 250 miles southwest of Anchorage, the city of Kodiak can be reached only by air or by sea.  There are several commercial flights to Kodiak from Anchorage each day and the average flying time is about an hour.  For travelers who enjoy taking a more leisurely scenic route, there is the Alaska Marine Highway System, which provides ferry service from Homer or Whittier several times a week.  A ferry trip from Homer, Alaska is about 9.5 hours.  

There are car rental agencies and cabs available at the airport.  Cabs are readily available at the ferry terminal and some car rental agencies will pick ferry passengers up at the terminal to bring them to their car.  Many of the hotels and bed and breakfasts have courtesy vans available for arriving and departing guests.   

From the city of Kodiak, travelers can get to locations around the archipelago via small planes or boats.  Some lodges are accessible only by sea-plane while others are accessible by boat.  There are six communities other than the City of Kodiak scattered around the islands - all of the communities have air strips with scheduled flight service.  The community of Port Lions is also accessible by the Alaska Marine Highway ferry.
