1978

Fast forward to 1978 and most of Admiralty Island becomes a National Monument – but the cannery site continues as private property because it was a commercial homestead site.

1987

In the mid-1980’s the old cannery site was re-discovered, divided into two sections, and purchased by two individuals. The East side of the property became “Pybus Point Lodge” in 1987, and the West side a private residence.
Early Beginning

EARLY Beginnings - PYBUS POINT LODGE

Pybus Point Lodge was born and the transition from a cannery to a world class lodge was just beggining. Early travler’s arrived on boat but then started to arrive in seaplanes. Cabins were built as well as other facilities to accomodate more guests.

1995

For more than a decade, Scott & Jody Jorgensen have been welcoming guests at Pybus Point Lodge. Having met in college and raising of family of 5 kids, their passion for the outdoors, love of the ocean and entrepreneurial spirit made Pybus Point Lodge an easy decision.

2009

Since 2009, their vision of a unique Alaska experience that included all of the elements of adventure and discovery, combined with a dedication to individual service in a family atmosphere, have been the guiding principles that still prevail at Pybus Point Lodge.

2018

In 2018 the Jorgensen’s joined forces with one of their long-time customer’s Redmond Inc. Redmond Inc. is a Utah based business development company well-known for its portfolio of quality products and its culture of “Elevating the Human Experience”.
