To be able to sit 40 feet away from a bear hunting for fish was simply amazing, but we also got to see more bears, sea otters by the dozen, seals, bald eagles, puffins, foxes and a wolf in only two and a half days. Angela and Perry (with Bob and Sherri the chef) run the very comfortable lodge and... More

If you want to see bears close up then this is the place to go. We have just had the most amazing experience sitting within 50 feet of huge bears while they fed. No fences, no crowds and no time limits. You can just sit and watch them for hours. Perry and Bob were our guides and they know their... More

We were recommended the lodge by the agent we used and he was full of praise for them. He was not wrong, the place is the best. The location nesteld between sea and mountains is stunning, the accommodation simple but perfectly adequate, the staff could not be more helpful and friendly, and Shawns food out of this world. Perry the... More

Two things in this life cannot be organised and they are the weather and the wildlife! Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us and we had one complete day out of our 4 when we could not go out as there was a storm. Also the bears did not want to catch salmon when we were there. We did... More

If you are looking for a wilderness lodge with first class service you cant beat this lodge. The bear viewing is great in Kukak Bay along with seals, sea lions, eagles, puffins, and those cute sea otters. The boats are easy to get on and off with a ramp that lowers to the beach. The food is out of this... More

The Katmai Wilderness Lodge is situated in the most amazing setting right at Kukak Bay. All the food is wonderfully home cooked. The little huts are simple but tidy. It's bears-lover's paradise. They take you on boat trips through the bay to look for bears. Once they spotted one (or more) you step ashore and can sit (on little folding... More

The setting of this lodge right on Kulak bay is superb. The views of the bay from the deck are beautiful both when the tide is in and when it is out. There is the added bonus that on a clear day you get very nice views of kodiak Island in the distance. I was to see in the bay... More

If you cam afford it - this place ain't cheap - it is worth staying. Cabins are OK, some more than others and in summer, the daylight might be bothersome, especially in the cabins facing sunset, which get very warm. If you hit on the right cook, as we did, food is fine. Nothing fancy or gourmet, but plentifull and... More

It is expensive, but, at Katmai Wilderness Lodge, you are certain to get close to bears in the wild. We took stools and sat less than 10 metres from bears eating clams and vegetation. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, except that the double beds, which are against a wall, have a bunk bed above, which restricts headroom and access.... More
