Lovely little island set in a sheltered cove. The cabins are Clean, comfortable yurts. Owners even provide water taxi transportation from Seward, so plan your activities to coordinate with the schedule. If you like to get away from it all this is the place. Explore, kayak, wander.... Will definitely come again.

Words have no meaning! Words and even pictures have little meaning! Even your eyes and all of your other senses will not believe the things they are being asked to processed for a while! The scenery is spectacular! The owners love what there doing, You can not fake true enthusiasm and the love for what you doing! Del and Linda... More

We loved our stay here, definitely the highlight of our Alaska trip! We stayed for one night and wished we did two. We still crammed in just about everything we wanted to do in that one day though: Kayaking to the waterfall: There is a nice ~30 min (depending on your ability) kayak ride to a beautiful waterfall. One tip:... More

Our stay at Orca Island Cabins was our favourite part of our trip to Alaska. It may be the greatest place that we have ever stayed. It's insanely great. We are a family of four - our two children are ages 11 and 13. On our way to the island, Captain Dennis found a pod of 5 orcas and steered... More

We're glad that you and your family had such a great experience visiting with us at Orca Island. As you experienced, the marine wildlife in Humpy Cove is varied and each day's experience is unpredictable. The young lady catching the octopus was itself an unusual event but one enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing your experience and hope to see... More

Totally enjoyed our 24 hour stay. Words and pictures can't truly describe the beauty of this place. We enjoyed relaxing on our deck with a fantastic view, sea kayaked along the coast to waterfalls, loved finding starfish and other creatures in the tidal pools. Wonderful hosts, location and accommodations.

Thanks for your comments on your stay with us at Orca Island. I'm glad that you had the opportunity to do and see all that you did during your one-day visit. As you experienced, the scenery, marine wildlife and kayaking in Humpy Cove can be awesome, and it's fun to share with friends as you did. More

My husband and I stayed 1 night on Orca Island and loved every minute of it. The island is breathtaking and it was amazing to stay in a Yurt for the night. We enjoyed kayaking and finding the trail to the waterfall. The Yurt were very comfortable. As a couple we love camping and camped most places in Alaska. However,... More

The location is gorgeous. The property is set up in the cove and among these cool little islands so that it allows everything to mesh with the natural beauty. We maximized our two night stay but I could have stayed a lot longer and I would recommend at least a two night stay. We really enjoyed fishing in the cove... More

My friends and I were celebrating the accomplishment of one of our friends and selected Orca Island Cabins as our retreat. As is likely to happen in Alaska, (people this isn't Southern California) it rained during our stay. We were prepared with proper rain gear and kayaked and got outside anyway. It was an amazing time and I highly recommend... More

We have lived in Alaska for 20+ years and this is our #1 favorite place to visit. So much so we spent our 25th wedding anniversary there this June. The location is one of the most spectacular spots in the state - right on the water. We have seen whales, seals, porpoises right off the deck. Kayaks, paddle boards, fishing... More

We went early in the season in May 2015, and thankfully the weather held out for us. Just an amazing place, Susan and Dennis are incredibly gracious, knowledgeable and kind hosts, and the cabins and environment they've created is second to none. The cabins and surrounding area are gorgeous, practical, and comfortable. There are quite a few things to do,... More
