Rookery Falls can be seen across the bay from the town of Whittier, one of many waterfalls dropping off of Learnard Glacier. It can be accessed up close from a kayak or one of the many cruise ships heading into Prince William Sound from Whittier.

The very interesting thing about Rookery Falls is the kittiwake rookery located here. You will see hundreds of these birds flying and nesting around this waterfall. It is very interesting and unique.

I named this waterfall Rookery Falls because of the kittiwake rookery here. It is an unofficial name, though I have heard it called by this name before.
