Visitor Information

Public Use and Access

Tugidak Island is remote and undeveloped. There are no protected boat anchorages along its shoreline and no developed landing strips. There are no public use facilities on the island. Several seasonal mining camps are operated along the southwestern shore. Infrequent visitors from Kodiak Island arrive by boat and float or wheel plane for waterfowl and ptarmigan hunting, beachcombing and clamming in storm-pounded beaches, and wildlife/nature watching. Use of motorized vehicles in the critical habitat area requires a special area permit from the Department of Fish and Game.
