My husband and I had seen Orca Island Cabins on "The Today Show," so I had to go! Dennis and Susan were so nice and hospitable. Dennis picks you up on his water taxi and tries his best to show you a few whales while driving out to Humpy Cove. We stayed here on two very sunny days in early July, but I can see that this experience would have been just as unique and peaceful even with rain or overcast skies. The yurts are so cute......and nicely decorated.....and are absolutely comfy and cozy.......and you can't beat the view and tranquility. We stayed in "Puffin" and it was private and peaceful. Without a doubt, we recommend this place to all. I'd recommend kayaking in the late evening. We were able to catch a few salmon and rockfish. And the walk to the waterfall is so pretty in the evening or early morning. There's something mystical and magical about that place in the evening. Keep a watch out for the curious seals. And waterproof pants and shoes are a good idea.
Keep up the good work, Susan and Dennis. You guys have a really good thing going.........very unique.......very "real Alaska"........and very cool! You inspired us to get the heck outta the rat race...
