U.S. Secretary of State William Seward bought Alaska for about 2 cents an acre in 1867. A lot of people believed it to be a waste of money and nicknamed the land Seward’s Folly, but we couldn’t disagree more. Alaska is an ancient landscape teeming with wildlife. Its human population is sparse, and it sustains rich ecosystems from its snow-capped mountain peaks to its tumbling rivers and plunging oceans. In fact, the state is home to the largest and only sustainable wild salmon industry in the world.
With over 33,000 miles of coastline, it makes sense that the fishing industry is the third largest industry in the state of Alaska, behind the oil industry and tourism. The state harvests nearly six billion pounds of seafood a year. Watch the video above to get an idea of how salmon was caught and processed.
The remote location of Pybus Point Lodge provides for world-class fishing on tranquil waters and proximity to playful sea lions and breaching whales. In the years after the lodge was built, the lodge became more established as word spread of all the island and surrounding ocean have to offer.
Over the last thirty years, we’ve enjoyed sharing our remarkable corner of the world. Our vision of a unique Alaskan vacation includes all the elements of adventure and discovery, combined with a dedication to individual service in a family atmosphere. We’ve modernized our guest accommodations and equipment while still maintaining our sincere care for each visitor’s experience.
From the time we meet you in Juneau you’ll see a lot more whales than people – so it’s a good thing they are some of the best people you’ll ever meet! Even more often than we hear guests raving about the beauty of our bay, we hear compliments about our 28 crew members who work tirelessly to create the perfect Alaskan experience for your group!
