Explore the coasts of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and California

The goal of CoastView is to encourage exploration of the coast. Our intent is to provide a moment of appreciation and to leave a lasting impression of the magnificent coastline of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and California. Our library has over a half million images, thats an average of one picture for every 500 feet (150 m) of shoreline from California to the Alaskan Arctic, and thousands of interesting places to read about. Don't miss our daily posts that highlight stunning close-up pictures and tell stories about interesting places along the coast. 

Each story has links to more in-depth articles, as well as a link to the same picture in the CoastView mobile app. Use the link to open the CoastView app and explore more of the same area and keep track of where you are with an interactive map. The app can also be used for exploring the coast on your own without using any links from the articles. So now you can sightsee along the coast - whether you're traveling in “real-time” by bike, car, boat or airplane, or traveling “virtually” from a comfy chair at home.

An easy-to-use and fascinating way to learn about the history, nature, and geography of the west coast of North America, let CoastView help you plan an adventure (an Alaska cruise, or a fishing, kayaking, or flightseeing trip) and take a stress-free ‘virtual trip’ anywhere along the coast. Or use it while traveling to see and learn about the coast right next to you, no wifi required. Subscribe to receive daily stories and download the app today and take your first trip!
