Kodiak Resort adds Greenhouse for those with Green Thumbs!

June 1, 2013 – Kodiak Island Resort constructed an 8′ x 12′ greenhouse to take advantage of the long summer days in Alaska. We get almost 20 hours of sunlight during the mid-summer months and this provides a great growing season for vegetables, herbs and flowers. Normally the greenhouse will be about 20 degrees warmer than the outside air temperature and coupled with the long sunny days we get lots of great veggies and herbs daily. Many of our guests enjoy relaxing in or around the greenhouse after a long day of fishing.

Kodiak brown bears also stop buy the greenhouse checking out all the freshly grown vegtables and flowers.

came to fish at Kodiak Island Resort the last week of May  The group was not disappointed as they consistently caught limits of halibut, yelloweye rockfish, king salmon and Tanner crabs.

Ocean and bay fishing in and around Larsen Bay is always productive but the diversity sets it apart from any other village on Kodiak Island or the Kenai peninsular. There is not only a diversity of fishing here in Larsen bay but also an abundance. No where else in Alaska can fish and crabs be caught with the consistency as found on Kodiak Island, especially around Larsen Bay.

Alaska Flightseeing at Kodiak Island Resort

May 1-2012 – Guests at Kodiak Island Resort often add a Alaska flightseeing charter to their wilderness adventure. Float planes can be chartered to pickup lodge guests right from our beach to take guests to all of the great sightseeing locations near our lodge. Favorite client sites include Geographic Bay, Frazier Lake,  Karluk River and Halo Bay.  All of these locations offer great bear viewing opportunities as well as spectacular scenery and world class salmon.

Many Alaska fishing lodges offer flightseeing but no where is there a better place to see the varieties of wildlife and majestic scenery as Kodiak Island. These flight seeing trips not only allow guests to see areas of Kodiak from a different perspective but the memories from these trips will last a lifetime. See for yourself why we think Kodiak Island Alaska is one of the very special places in all the world.

New Head of Outside Security Appointed……

May 15, 2013 Abby, a 2 year old Irish Jack Russell Terrier has been named head of outside security for Kodiak Island Resort. Abby is very resourceful and creative when it comes to ferreting out interlopers and un-invited guests, especially the 4-legged kind. Almost all fishing lodges in Alaska have security systems but few are as compact an efficient as ours.

Abby has had numerous encounters with foxes, land otters,  short tail weasels and even a moose. She has proven very efficient in warding off interlopers or notifying the staff of arrivals by guests and friends. Abby  does have one short coming,  she is easily bribed with dog treats. Other than the one short coming she has proven to be exactly what was needed to keep everyone aware of the outside comings and goings around the lodge.Abby007011
