We recently took our family to Kodiak Island Resort and had a great time. The lodge is very nice and comfortable. Jessica the hostess took care of all of our needs while inside the lodge including serving unbelievable meals prepared to perfection by Chef Jeremy. The evening meals consisted of seafood bisque, salad, fresh seafood and homemade desserts. Our days on the water provided us with spectacular scenery, wildlife viewing, whale watching and the best fishing anyone could ever hope for. We limited out on halibut, salmon, yelloweye rockfish and also caught several large ling cod. We also put out a crab trap our first day fishing and caught 24 snow crabs on our third day. We had a great, all you can eat crab cookoff that night for our evening meal. Our boat crew Capt Jim and Capt Bobby took very good care of us keeping our hooks baited and assisting us when we hooked fish that fought harder than we expected. Overall, from the scenery, to the wildlife, to the fishing to the lodge and location I can't come close to explaining how great a trip this is. We highly recommend a trip to Kodiak Island Resort for anyone seeking a wilderness, fishing adventure.

We are so glad to hear that you had such a wonderful trip when you came up last summer. We are delighted to let you know that Captain Jim Rinckey, Master Guide, and Chev Jeremy Capari will be returning this summer. We plan on keeping all the experiences the same but adding a fleet of kayaks, and even “pedal assist”, battery powered, ebikes for trekking, beach exploring, remote river fishing, or just a fun cruise down to the vintage cannery store. Jim will not only be able to captain the 36 foot long, 14 foot wide beam cat fishing boat that has bean at the lodge, but a true luxury 33 foot North River boat that we are adding to our fleet as well. Jeremy will be cooking in a true commercial kitchen that is getting fully remodeled and will be completed shortly. We've also done some amazing new things to the property, including all new carpet and a new fishing processing building. We are excited to share these adventures with so many new people and hope to see you again one day.

We just spent 4 days at the Kodiak Island Resort. Eight of us took over the entire lodge. What an awesome place. The people at the lodge were wonderful; Jessica was fantastic at keeping things organized and the chef, Jeremy, was top notch, making us gourmet meals three times a day. The two skippers, Bob and Jim had every fishing hole mapped out. We caught every kind of fish and the crab pots provided a great crab cookout for us. Allen, the owner is a character, very entertaining and larger than life. The lodge is perfectly located right next to the dock and boat launch. Both boats owned by the lodge were great. The lodge provides rain gear, including rubber boots for the boat. There is no cell coverage and only limited wifi. Larsen Bay is a bit of a challenge to get to, especially with Covid. If you charter a flight from Anchorage to Larsen Bay, as we did, keep in mind that there are weight restrictions. This wasn't an issue on the way in, but we caught so much fish, which created a problem on the way out. If you are catching a lot of fish during your trip, contact the charter company mid trip and they can pick up fish and store it for you in their freezer. I highly recommend the Kodiak Island Resort

We've made more than a dozen fishing trips all over Alaska, but Alaska's Kodiak Island Resort at Larsen Bay was, hands down, the best. The accommodations were first rate, the staff was well trained and attentive and the food was five star. Most importantly the guides, boats and equipment were first rate. I've never seen guides that were as good at finding the fish. They worked hard for us and they did an incredible job of cleaning and vacuum sealing the fish. So far we haven't found a single bone! Overall it was a grand experience and I recommend Alaska's Kodiak Island Resort. There is no better way to experience Alaska!

This place is remarkable. Our group is already planning a return trip. The accommodations were very nice & very comfortable. The front porch over looking the harbor is breathtaking. We caught fish after fish and saw a lot of wildlife as well. The staff at the Kodiak Island Resort became friends. They worked hard to show us a good time and make sure we were well taken care of. The food was delicious, no one went hungry to say the least.

Location= Amazing, great view of the harbor. The lodge is very tired and in need of maintenance and repair. The staff did the best they could with what they had to work with. The fishing guides were amazing and had us on the fish constantly. The cook worked wonders with nothing. Each day when the fish were cleaned a person came from the kitchen to take fish from our catch to be prepared for the evening meal. Nice job of cutting corners on the cost of food. The second night was the highlight as we were served all the crab we could eat. Served in a garage, on a folding table with a tarp under it, paper plates, red solo cups and plastic forks. No melted butter or lemon and no side dish ONLY CRAB! As an additional perk the owner stood over the table watching us eat while his little dog ran around under it. Very sad. The owner Micro Managed the staff and the guest. Coasters under your drink, shoes off in the mud room, constant reminders to be punctual at meal times and fishing time. Very Relaxing With proper management this could be a wonderful place. As it is, it is a night mare. Many other lodges close by, choose one of those for a better vacation

Response from Allen Walburn, General Manager at Alaska's Kodiak Island Resort
Responded Jul 28, 2020
We have been open for 15 years and operate one of the nicest, most well appointed lodges in Alaska. This group was obviously looking for a product we did not provide for them?They were offended that we requested they enter and exit through our mudroom so that could change, into and out of, their rubber fishing boots for clean indoor shoes. Dirty/muddy rubber boots don't wear well with our Persian rugs or read oak hardwood floors. They did not think it appropriate for us to request they place their cocktails and beer cans on coasters instead of our polished wood tables. Most importantly, they were asked to eat their fresh caught crabs in our fish room so they would not get crab debris all over our dining room carpet. . Lastly they were upset that we cooked their catch for them instead of something else. They said it was our job to clean up the crab shells and juice from the carpets after we got finished removing the water rings from our tables All of our previous guests relished the outdoor crab cook off and eating the fresh caught fish of the day so they could experience fresh caught fish while obtaining cooking ideas and techniques from our chef. Lastly the party complained about our spacious bedrooms and bedding. The beds are almost new full-sized Serta mattresses, covered in 600 thread count sheets and designer comforters. Many of our clients rave as much about our beds/sleeping conditions as they do our fishing. I can't understand what we could offer that is better than maybe a four poster king sized bed with silk sheets and an Egyptian cotton duvet? We also think it is appropriate to have a dependable schedule so we can serve timely/hot meals and the boat crew knows when to prepare the boat for the day's fishing adventure. Up here you can't just snap your fingers and receive four course meals or, a completely outfitted fishing boat ready to sail at a moment's notion. There is a lot of work, daily, for the entire lodge staff so, schedules are a very important part of providing a quality experience as well as keeping staff morale high. We try very hard to provide a great wilderness property as is reasonably and logistically possible but. It is unfortunate we failed to live up to this group.s expectations but we did provide them with an amazing fishing trip in the greatest location Alaska has to offer. As an aside, they took home over 300 pounds of halibut and each one admitted they had never eaten more or better crabs. In the future we will better inform our guests of our lodges practices and what to expect so they will not be so surprised.
