Fortress of the Bears

If seeing bears up close and personal is on your bucket list, Pybus Point Lodge may be able to help.

Tongass National Forest, and specifically Admiralty Island National Monument, has the highest density of black bears in the world, and one of the highest densities of brown bears as well. Admiralty Island, where our lodge is located, is actually known by the native Tlingít people as “Kootznoowoo,” or “Fortress of the Bears.” There are more than 1,600 brown bears on the island (black bears are found elsewhere in the 17 million acres of the national forest), which is more than all the brown bears in the lower 48 states combined.

Alaskan Brown Bears

Seeing a bear on your trip is not guaranteed because the bears really don’t like seeing you, but if you keep a keen eye on the shore lines or enjoy an afternoon on the river your chances will go way up.

When you’re in bear country it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and take proper precautions. Because of the high density of bears on the island it is not recommended to go hiking alone near the lodge,but our guides can help you increase your chances of seeing a bear as part of your visit.

Incredible Experience!

Pybus Point Lodge has some of the most stunning scenery I’ve ever seen. I mean absolutely breathtaking! In addition to the amazing fishing, I hiked to a beautiful secluded lake, soaked in some hot pots, saw several waterfalls, went whale watching, saw bears and all kinds of wildlife and marine life. As a photographer, photographing a wedding under a waterfall will remain a highlight of my life.

Wonderful and Magical Place

We had an amazing business retreat to Pybus Point Lodge.  Everything was top notch... the fishing, the staff, the boat captains, the food, the accommodations, and especially the scenery.    I really liked that Pybus took care of everything from start to finish. Chef John is an amazing cook. We had delicious hot meals the entire trip.  The cabins were amazing and very comfortable.  The fishing was awesome and that’s coming from a guy that doesn’t fish that much.

We brought home 100lbs of fish!

My wife and I spent a week at Pybus Point this Summer. We had a beautiful, private room overlooking the bay and our own new, ensuite, private bathroom. What an amazing place for couples to get away together. We set our own breakfast time, met our boat captain after, fished the day along, and returned to clean up and enjoy a nice dinner at the restaurant. Next time Alaska is on the trip list, Sherrie and I will go together, and it will be to Pybus Point!

Fun in Alaska

This was my first trip to Pybus Point. I stayed in one of their new cabins. The accommodations were incredible, the view onto the bay in the mornings was stunning. I loved the staff and the food was really very good. All of this and they have new boats to take you out onto fairly calm waters to fish. The fishing guides were great. Overall a great experience. Definitely going back.
