St. Lazaria Island is located northwest of Sitka off of Cape
Edgecumbe. A federally protected bird sanctuary, St. Lazaria is
home to thousands of breeding pairs of tufted puffins. The
island itself characterizes a jurassic looking landscape
featuring sea arches, pinnacles, ragged cliffs, and caves.
Quietly drift at the base of a cliff full of nesting birds - puffins,
murres, auklettes. Marvel at the abundant marine life as the boat
noses its way into the entrance of the cave offering first class
views into the heart of the island.
