Alaska has more miles of coastline than any other state. The coast extends for 6,640 miles, a distance greater than that of all the other states’ combined coastlines. Including islands, inlet sounds and bays, the total is 47,300 miles. Scenic wonders abound in coastal Alaska. Orcas, humpback whales, sea lions, playful sea otters, puffins and countless bird rookeries thrive in Alaskan waters. Dense forest islands provide sanctuary for bald eagles and roaming bear. Massive ice fields stretch for hundreds of miles, reaching the coast in massive calving ice-blue glaciers.
