Wake up bright and early to arrive at Alaska Seaplanes for your float ride plane to the lodge by 6:30AM. You will receive safety orientation before taking a scenic seaplane ride over the Tongass National Forrest. After landing at Pybus Bay, we will have breakfast ready to eat as you watch a short safety orientation video and are introduced to our friendly staff.

Glaciers, Icebergs, and Fjords

Things to See: Twin Sawyers Glacier, Glacial waterfalls, seals
We will have the exciting opportunity to take a scenic boat ride up to the majestic Tracy Arm Fjord to see the Twin Sawyers Glaciers. While boating up the fjord we will stop to take pictures of bright blue icebergs and have a chance to spot black bears, brown bears, and mountain goats. Once we arrive at the glaciers, have your cameras ready! Huge chunks of ice often fall off of the glaciers in a process called calving. These ice chunks create massive waves that you won't want to miss. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for seals lounging on the floating ice chunks.

Whale Watching and Deep Sea Fishing

Things to See: Humpback whales, Orca’s, Fish
Our last full day will be spent out on our private boat searching for migrating humpback whales! Southeast Alaska is home to one of the most concentrated populations of humpback whales that come to Alaska to feed it in their rich feeding waters. While we most likely will see whales during the duration of our trip, this day will spent trying to find them breaching, pectoral fin slapping, and possibly bubble net feeding! After whale watching, we will pull out the rods and reels and give our group an opportunity to fish the famous waters of Southeast Alaska. Our captain will keep us on the fish – halibut, five species of salmon, rockfish, yelloweye, ling cod, and more!

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

Humpback Whales

The calm, cool waters of Alaska’s Inside Passage are the perfect habitat for humpback whales. Our guests tell us close encounters with these peaceful giants have changed the way they see the world – and we know just what they mean.

Icebergs and Glaciers

Feeling adventurous? Spend a day exploring the famous Tracy Arm Fjord. You’ll see seals playing among beautiful blue icebergs as you make your way to a huge glacier less than 10 miles from the Canadian border.

Fortress of the Bears

You’ll stay with us on Admiralty Island, called Kootznoowoo by native Tlingit people, which means “Fortress of the Bears.” There are more bears on our island than in all 49 other states combined – and more than 2.5x the number of people here!

Beauty After Dark

If your timing is lucky, you’ll be able to watch the northern lights put on a show from your private balcony overlooking the water. If the aurora aren’t on show, gaze up at the infinite night sky – or walk to the shore and be amazed by the phosphorescent algae that live in the cold waters of Pybus Bay.

Stunning Waterfalls

A short ride in one of our skiffs will take you to the mouth of a river where, if your timing is right, you can watch salmon make their final run to spawn. When it isn’t overrun by bears dining on the feast, you can walk upstream just a few minutes to a beautiful waterfall in the thick forest.

Orca, Seals, Sea Lions

A short ride in one of our skiffs will take you to the mouth of a river where, if your timing is right, you can watch salmon make their final run to spawn. When it isn’t overrun by bears dining on the feast, you can walk upstream just a few minutes to a beautiful waterfall in the thick forest.

Luxury Lodging

Our brand new cabins were designed from the ground up to be the finest accommodations in Alaska. Every guest enjoys the same all-inclusive experience, whether you choose a deluxe room with a private balcony overlooking the bay.

Photography Paradise

Alaska is a photographers dream! With over 18-hours of summer sunlight you can enjoy what we call our eternal golden hour! Your expert guide will take you on an adventure to the most secluded and best spots on our isolated island to see hidden waterfalls, misty fjords, and abundant wildlife.

Executive Chef

Our executive chef developed his art for years running restaurants in 5-star resorts before partnering with us to create the perfect Alaskan menu: Brilliantly conceived dishes so fresh and delicious you’ll look forward to every meal.

Chartered Sea Plane

Your trip will begin in Juneau, Alaska, where you will board our charter sea plane for a once-in-a-lifetime view of Admiralty Island from above. After a scenic 45 minutes, your pilot will dip his wings between two islands and touch down at our private dock in Pybus Bay.

Kayak and Paddleboard

You don’t even need a guide to experience some of the best parts of Alaska. Take kayaks to explore the islands in our protected bay, where you can watch bald eagles above and seals, jellyfish, sea otters, and whales in the clear water below.

Custom-Built Boats
