Pybus Bay Fishing

The Lodge is located on the lower end of Admiralty Island overlooking Pybus Bay, which is part of the northern region of the famous Alaska Inside Passage. Shaped over millions of years by the powerful force of glaciers, you’ll be able to see local fjords with lush landscapes and amazing wildlife. The island and the nearby waters is the habitat for some of the most incredible species, including brown bears, bald eagles, sea lions, otters, humpback whales, and orca (killer whales) that are often visible from the boats.  

Your stay at our all-inclusive lodge includes free use of our private jet skiffs. These skiffs are perfect for everything from bear watching to halibut fishing. In fact, it's not uncommon for our guests to bring a 100+ pound halibut to our docks after taking one a skiff out on a self-guided adventure.

Skiff Exploring

Every skiff adventure is included as part of your stay with us at Pybus Point Lodge. This makes it easy to see all the marvelous wildlife and beautiful natural surroundings of the area in between your guided fishing trips. Just come on down to the docks and a member of our dock team will show you how to pilot the skiffs and provide you with all the necessary safety gear to ensure a fun-filled adventure whenever you want to go.

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.
