From the boat ride out from Seward, to the accommodations and wonderful hosts this is the perfect getaway from civilization spot. Fishing, kayaking and most of all just the serenity of peace with nature. Bring in what food/drink you need for your stay and you'll never forget this trip. Stay at least 2 nights for the best pleasure. If we... More

Are you kidding? This place was amazing. We are kayakers and were so excited to visit Orca Island Cabins on our first trip to Alaska. It sure wasn't a disappointment. We loved our yurt and the owners were great. We had fun watching the porpoises, otters, jelly fish, eagles, fish and sea lions right outside our door every day. Kayak... More

We absolutely loved our 2 night stay at the remote Orca Island Cabins! Dennis and Susan were great hosts and we made full use of all the amenities they had to offer: kayaking (both individual and double), paddle boarding, row boating, fishing, exploring, and just hanging out enjoying the spectacular views and wildlife! The yurts were decently equipped and heated... More

I hardly have words to describe Orca Island. We had a fantastic time! The island was beautiful, the sea kayaking to the water falls was fantastic, and we also enjoyed just sitting on one of the decks and staring out at the beautiful scenery for hours. Everything you could need or want is provided for you on the island and... More

This place...oh my gosh, it was amazing. It was such a feat to build this place on a rock in a cove 30 minutes by water from Seward. From the instant I discovered this place on TripAdvisor to even still now weeks later I am excited about it. It is spectacular. Denis picked us up as scheduled from the K... More

Jason, We're glad that you had an enjoyable experience at Orca Island Cabins and look forward to seeing you again in this very special wilderness setting. Susan will have a lot of new art to display when you return. And, hopefully, you will have the same good luck fishing in Humpy Cove. Our very best to you. More

Remote getaway with all the needed amenities. I wish we would have stayed more than two nights. Before going, make sure you plan accordingly. Dennis and Susan were so helpful in that area for the three of us from Texas who had no idea what to expect because it was our first time. Along with ample time of relaxation and... More

We spent 3 nights in one of the 2 yurts across the bridge for maximum privacy. The yurt entitled "Stellars Joy" has a bigger view than "Puffin" but all the views are great. We kayaked over to a pristine stream where we did a very short walk to a waterfall and caught pink "humpy" salmon. We enjoyed just sitting on... More

We were very short on time and decided to opt for only one night on the island. What a mistake. We so wished we had spent at least two nights. Our visit was the highlight of our trip. The scenery from the yurts is beautiful. Sitting on your balcony watching the seagulls and occassionally getting a visit from the local... More

My wife and I stayed one night in Orca Island and really enjoyed it. Its a very welcome change from the Seward harbor area as its very isolated that the Yurts were very cool and well equipped. There is not much to do this other than enjoy the spectacular setting and kayak around the bay but that's great if you... More

Orca Island is situated in a beautiful bay and offers stunning views and a truly unique experience. The cabins for comfortable and cozy despite our spat of bad weather. On a nice day, if you really liked kayaking, I'm sure this place would be fantastic. However if you you want to do anything else, you're out of luck. I booked... More

We are certainly sorry that these guests did not have, primarily due to the rainy conditions they encountered during their stay, the kind of experience that they had hoped for or expected. Although we provide basic fishing tackle, consisting of a variety of lures and fishing rods and reels, we always encourage guests, who express a strong desire to fish,... More
