Pybus Point Lodge sits at a major crossroads for a wide variety of fish as they feed and travel to the waters of Frederick Sound, Stephen's Passage and Chatham Straits, giving our guests access to some of the best fishing in Southeast Alaska.

When you're not with your experienced guide, feel free to take one of our fleet of 18' Smokercraft skiffs to explore Pybus Bay's thriving fishery. Halibut, salmon, rockfish, shrimp, and crab are all plentiful – and our attentive dockhands will fillet, vacuum seal, flash-freeze, and box everything you catch so you can take it home.

Stunning Alaskan Eco-Tourism

Experience Alaska with an experienced guide to get you up close.

There is no better way to experience Alaska than from our comfortable touring boats as we travel north to explore the famous Tracy Arm fjord and its icebergs and glaciers. Along the way we always see plenty of humpback whales, sea lions, seals, and orcas in the cold, clear waters of Alaska's Inside Passage.

Our experienced guides will be able to show you hidden waterfalls and natural beauty that will leave you speechless, including a 600-foot waterfall on Baranof Island that rivals anything we've seen around the world. And closer to the lodge, on an island native Tlingit people named Xootsnoowú, or "Fortress of the Bears," you'll be able to spot brown bears and bald eagles who live nearby.

And, of course, your guide knows the best fishing holes along the route – if you're feeling the itch to fish, we can customize your day to include a little (or a lot) of everything.

Every week in Alaska is a good week in Alaska

Everyone asks the best time to visit Pybus Point Lodge, and the answer depends on what kind of Alaskan experience you’re looking for.

Fishing in September

If you have a group of hardcore fishermen, these dates probably aren’t your best bet. Casual fishermen love late season trips – there’s still plenty of halibut, rockfish, and yellow eye in the waters near our lodge – but you’ve missed several species of salmon, and the fishing is about 20% slower than peak July and August trips.

Touring and Northern Lights

On the other hand, if you’re a photographer or whale enthusiast who has always wanted to see the northern lights, stunning waterfalls, and even bioluminescent algae, September is an excellent time to visit us. Alaska puts on a brilliant show late in the summer.

We often see the northern lights from our balcony bedrooms in September – but it’s far from a sure thing. We need clear skies down here and solar weather up there – plus a moon phase that doesn’t compete for light, and the stamina to stay up late after a long day spent exploring. But aside from winter (when our lodge is closed) September is our best shot. The unpredictability is part of what makes the northern lights, and Alaska in general, so magical to experience.

What to expect from a typical this date trip

Northern Lights

100%

Whales

95%

Salmon

20%

Halibut

80%

* We’re comparing time frames in our part of Alaska, not laying odds. For example, king salmon pass through most often in late July and early August, so those trips score 100 on our king salmon line. But nature is unpredictable, and king salmon don’t take our requests – guests usually do use that king salmon stamp during those trips, but even a 100 on our typical week chart can’t out-nature mother nature.

Comfortably Secluded

Experience Alaska the Pybus Bay Way

We're lucky to have the best view in Southeast Alaska. Your first glimpse of Pybus Point Lodge comes as your float plane drops between two islands to land at our private dock, nestled in a beautiful cove beneath Bear Pass Mountain.

We may be several hours from the nearest traffic sign, but our rooms are every bit as welcoming as a comfortable, modern home. Built for the 2019 season, each room has its own thermostat-controlled fireplace, private bathroom, and daily maid service from our attentive crew.

No matter which cabin you're in, you'll be mere meters from the sea at high tide, with the scent of old-growth Sitka spruce trees drifting on the cool Alaskan sea breeze.

Gourmet meals are served in our log lodge at the center of the property, overlooking our private dock, where you'll find a hot tub and sauna and gather to relive the excitement of each day with friends and crew members.

Late May in Southeast Alaska was perfect for us. We came home with enough halibut to share with friends and stunningly beautiful pictures to keep the memories alive.
