It might surprise you to learn that orcas are not whales,despite commonly being referred to as “killer whales.” They are actually the largest member of the dolphin family, and just like dolphins, they travel in pods that include adult males, adult females, and calves. Their name actually comes from orcas that were spotted eating whales—whale killers—which eventually became killer whales.Book Now
The orcas you’ll see in Alaska fall into two groups—residents that travel in pods from 10 to 50 and are more stable in the area, or transients that travel in smaller pods of three to seven and travel greater distances for feeding and hunting. These animals grow as large as 30 feet and tend to travel near the surface of the ocean, coming out of the water to spout every few seconds along the way. With their trademark black body, tall triangular dorsal fin, and small white patch near the eye they are easy to spot and identify.
Many orcas populate the waters around Southeast Alaska near Pybus Point Lodge, and they occasionally come right inside the bay not too far from our docks. During our guided saltwater fishing excursions and daily adventuring, our guides can help increase your chances of seeing these awesome creatures.
When you fish the waters of Alaska, you need a boat that can handle any situation. That's why we are proud to partner with Wooldridge boats who has over a 100 years in the industry. Our boats have wrap around decks, advanced GPS, and they even have a bathroom just in case nature calls. But don't take our word for it, check out their video featuring one of our very own 33' deepwater series custom built boats you'll see at the lodge.LEARN MORE

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.
