Explore the coast of Alaska,

the Pacific Northwest,

and California


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

Each story has links to more in-depth articles, as well as a link to the same picture in the CoastView web (coming soon) or mobile app. Use the CoastView app to 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.

CoastView is 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) or take a stress-free virtual trip anywhere along the coast.
