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.

Fortress of the Bears

You’ll stay with us on Admiralty Island, called Xootsnoowú 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 do the shore and be amazed by the phosphorescent algae that live in the cold waters of Pybus Bay.

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.

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.

Sea Lions, Otters, and Seals

Several sea lion colonies make their home nearby. Our guests love to float offshore (and up wind; sea lions have quite a smell!) to watch these playful, aggressive animals interact on the rocks. Along the way we typically see curious seals and camera-shy sea otters, who love to swim in groups.

Fishing and So Much More

There is world-class salt water fishing here in Southeast Alaska, to be sure. But the Pybus Bay experience is so much more than just fishing. Come experience Alaska for yourself – you’ll understand why Pybus Point Lodge guests tell us they leave Alaska different people than when they arrive.
