Kasegaluk Lagoon represents a splendid coastal lagoon beautifully rising up in the western part of Alaska. This coastal lagoon system is the largest in Arctic Alaska and features the greatest aggregations of beluga whales, spotted seals and black brant that live along Alaska’s Chukchi Sea Coast. Kasegaluk Lagoon attracts a greater richness and diversity of avian species than any other Arctic Alaska lagoon system could ever attract. The lagoon includes a large variety of seabird colonies, and it is a beautiful and significant nesting area for common eider, which is an important resource for subsistence hunters. The fantastic lagoon is particularly important to the Pacific black brant for molting and fall staging. Polar bears can be admired near the lagoon, and grizzly bears often come at the lagoon to feed on marine mammal carcasses. Just east of the lagoon, in the vicinity of Point Lay, the visitors can see a high-density waterbird nesting site. Maximum depth of the lagoon is less than 4 meters, but much of the area is just 1-2 meters deep. The lagoon is carefully protected from the Chukchi Sea by a series of barrier islands and is fed by five major rivers. It offers excellent ocean kayaking and wildlife watching,making the area a veritabe destination for water sport lovers. This lagoon is an incredible place, that offers spectacular landscapes, where the visitors are suprised and truly fascinated by the picturesque beauty of the nature.
