WILDLIFE VIEWING and PHOTOGRAPHIC ADVENTURES

The Island of Kodiak is the second largest island in the United States, approximately 250 air miles southwest of Anchorage in the Gulf of Alaska. South Kodiak Adventures is located in the native Village of Akhiok (pictured above), on the Southern coast of Kodiak Island. For a map of Kodiak Island, CLICK HERE.



KODIAK BROWN BEAR VIEWING
is our specialty

Alaska's wildlife will take your breath away. We have many years of experience living with these magnificent bears and they still leave us in awe. See them first hand with a tour customized by South Kodiak Adventures and utilizing it's deluxe 33 ft. all aluminum cabin cruiser. Fully guided boat trips from the lodge offer you the opportunity to view and experience kodiak brown bear undisturbed by civilization in a real wilderness setting. Watch them fish for salmon. You can also see ancient petroglyphs in addition to a variety of marine and land animals in their natural surroundings. We suggest a minimum of a week stay to be able to view all the wildlife, native culture and scenery that we have to offer.

South Kodiak Adventures operates from it's full service cabins in, on and around the bays and fjords of the Southern tip of Kodiak Island. The 100 mile-long island is the main land mass of an archipelago in the Gulf of Alaska, Southwest of Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula.
The protected bays and fjords of the island offer a perfect opportunity for whale, seal and other marine mammal watching.

Kodiak Island offers unique beauty and wilderness which should inspire every visitor. Even long time Alaskans are continually amazed
at the wildlife and spectacular nature that Kodiak has to offer. Our surrounding crystal waters, pristine land and endless sky provide you unequalled exposure to mother nature and Alaska's wildlife inhabitants.
Our lodge adventures offer photographic tours by small boat, or our cabin cruiser with hiking and sightseeing, all at your fingertips, just waiting to create some wonderful memories that will be yours to share for a lifetime.

Most activities take place close to water, one way or the other, and accordingly all clients should have rubber boots and raingear. Species of wildlife to view are bears, various types of whales, eagles, sea otter, deer, fox, river otter, seals, sea lions, sea birds, including puffins, oyster catchers, mergansers, gulls, kitty wakes, terns, and many more. Tide pooling at low tide is very rewarding for those interested in shell fish and other marine life.

A typical day would include a boat ride in the morning to a location
from which we would look for Kodiak brown bears. After a few hours, we would do some marine viewing and then return to base camp or pull up
on a beach for lunch. The late afternoon and/or evening hours, are again spent looking for giant brown bears or checking out the Aleut arts and
crafts in the village. Midday provides time to observe the commercial
fishing fleet, check out the petroglyphs, do some beach combing,
whale watching, take a short hike, etc. Since we only take small groups, we can cater to each client's special interests.

We invite you to start by letting us know even before you arrive
which of the following activities interests you the most:
: • Bear viewing and wildlife photography
: • Native Aleut Arts, Crafts and Dancing right in the traditional
native Village of Akhiok where you will be staying.
: • Seabirds, marine mammals, eagles
: • Visiting seal rookeries & Whale watching
: • Hiking, beach combing, etc.
: • Visiting Native and Russian historical sites including the
old Russian Orthodox church in the Village of Akhiok


Clients who want a structured schedule may be disappointed. A true wilderness experience is one which must be flexible in order work around bad weather days, and days when bush airplanes can't fly due to wind and/or fog. Our lodging facilities are clean, dry, and warm, with plenty of good food, including fresh Kodiak seafood. The village housing is first rate with your room cleaned and beds made daily. Clients should
however bring the usual personal items. We provide all linens, bath
towels, wash cloths, etc.
