Humpback Whale

From June to September, Humpback Whales Frequent the Waters near Pybus Point.

Alaska has long been one of the best places to catch a glimpse of humpback whales in the summer months. These whales travel to their summer polar feeding grounds off the coast of Alaska before migrating back to tropical waters for breeding in the winter.

Come See The Humpback Whales

Humpback whales get their name from the distinct “hump” at the top of their head and the pattern of black and white on the underside of their flukes, which are visible as the whales dive from the surface down below. These vocal creatures can grow as large as 50 feet (more than six times the sizeof an average adult man) and weigh up to 35 tons (70,000 pounds). They string together a variety of sounds to form “songs” that can last anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes, and are fun for whale watching tours as they acrobatically leap out of the ocean belly-up or take a deep dive and show their entire tail fin heading down under the water.

Exploring With Whales

While there were once thought to be only a few hundred humpback whales off the coast of Alaska in the summer, today a population of thousands (and growing) have been tracked and spotted each year as they feed on shrimp-like krill, small fish, and plankton.  

From June through September you can find humpback whales in the ocean waters near Pybus Point Lodge. The whales around the lodge are so prevalent we don’t really go looking for them, we just see them daily as we are fishing and exploring our amazing part of the world. In fact, we sometimes think the whales are doing more people watching.

Hook, line, and sinker.

Amazing Alaska Lodge!

We have been all over Alaska lodges, cruises, b&b and nothing can compare to this amazing lodge. You can catch fish, watch whales, view wildlife, eat great food, warm, clean and luxury rooms but the best thing of all was the wonderful service! From the owners taking personal time to make you feel like family and the entire staff making every moment special it could have been no better. This was our first trip to pybus point and we have already signed up to come back next year!


Rename to Paradise Point Lodge

A few friends I’ve kept in touch with since college have been wanting to do a trip together for the last 5 years or so. After deciding on Alaska, we researched different lodges and ultimately decided Pybus Point was where we wanted to go. We could not have been more pleased with the experience as a whole and it was so much more than just a fishing trip. Pybus Point is truly located in paradise.

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.
