All About Our Biggest Bear

We see a lot of wildlife here in our little slice of paradise on Afognak Island – seals, porpoises, Roosevelt Elk, Sitka Blacktail Deer, Bald Eagles, Salmon, and so much more. To us, every species and creature is beautiful, and they’re all an expression of the wonder and diversity of this glorious ecosystem. But there’s one species that stands out to us: the Kodiak Brown Bear.

The Jewel of Alaska

Over the years, Afognak Island has picked up a lot of titles – but our favorite by far is its nickname, ‘the jewel of Alaska.’ We think this title is well deserved. It’s a reflection of the natural beauty and diversity of the region: you’ll find dense spruce forests populated by brown bears, Roosevelt elk, and Sitka black-tailed deer; narrow, meandering bays where sea otters, seals, and sea lions play; and the great expanse of the Pacific ocean, with regular visits from Killer Whales, Grey Whales, Humpbacks, Finbacks, and Minkes – just to name a few. Afognak Island is truly a special corner of this great, wild state of Alaska.

What Guests Say

“Our third time here and we find something new and wonderful everytime. This has become our Alaskan home.”
Shizuko Kato, Osaka, Japan
How amazing to watch seal lion roar, brown bear cross the beach just ahead of us, see rare sea birds and end the day with a 10pm waterski run down the bay! Also nice to see a family working together so well… many talents here.
Parvis and Kay Sadighi, Massachusetts
This was the BEST lodge we’ve been to. All the comforts of home in a remote setting. Very friendly people, helpful and obliging… like Laura Ashley marries Eddie Bauer! Caught fish here when all were getting skunked everywhere else. The lodge even added extra fish to our box of frozen fish for the trip home.
Don and Joyce Benioff, California
Family feeling… just wonderful with small groups being a plus! Very accommodating. Lots of wildlife that we could get close to. It was truly Wonderful.
