Glacier wildlife

As tidewater glaciers, they flow from the mountain peaks above, through a valley down to the ocean. At the edge of the glacier you can often see large chunks calving (breaking off) with a splash and sending smaller icebergs floating into the fjord. When conditions are good our Sawyer Glacier Day Trip tours can get very close to the glacier, providing a perfect view of mountain goats at the base, as well as other wildlife like black and brown bears, harbor seals, and a wide variety of arctic birds. We’ll get as close as we safely can so you can photograph the glacier and wildlife.

Get ready to be impressed

You’ll experience some of the most incredible natural beauty of cobalt-blue ice disappearing deep into the sea, towering cliffs on either side of the fjord, and gorgeous waterfalls stretching hundreds of feet above the water. The weather and the water can be unpredictable, so tours may not be available on every day of your trip. Bring warm clothing (hat, jacket, gloves) and a rain-proof cover to stay comfortable on the trip.

Incredible Experience!

Pybus Point Lodge has some of the most stunning scenery I’ve ever seen. I mean absolutely breathtaking! In addition to the amazing fishing, I hiked to a beautiful secluded lake, soaked in some hot pots, saw several waterfalls, went whale watching, saw bears and all kinds of wildlife and marine life. As a photographer, photographing a wedding under a waterfall will remain a highlight of my life.

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.
