Arrival & Departure Details
Dates are built around the weekly calendar and we have tailored our fishing trip schedule to coincide with a weekend arrival and departure. Guests arrive on Sunday and typically depart on the following Saturday. Our Brown Bear hunts are scheduled to coincide with the season opening in the fall (October 25th) and the season closing date in the Spring (May 15th.) The arrival and departure dates on the Brown Bear hunts are somewhat flexible! We prefer to have the shorter hunts begin on a Sunday for the convenience of a weekend arrival, however for the conveyance of travel on the Alaska Marine Highway System ferry vessels, The M/V Tustemena & M/V Kennicot we will work our schedule to meet yours.
Departures are a very busy time around the lodge as we prepare our guests for their journey back to their homes or on to the next stop in their adventure in the Northland. We encourage our guests to book their flights from Kodiak to Anchorage no earlier than mid-morning (10:30 am).

Accommodations & Lodging
While on a hunt that is run from our lodge here in port Lions, hunting guests are accommodated in our Coho-Nook Inn. This 4,500 square foot facility has four guest rooms on the first floor. Each room has its own private bathroom. This facility offers scenic views of the surrounding mountains and the waters of Settlers Cove are just a short stroll from our front door. The spacious and comfortable accommodations are very home-like, with our guests’ needs first and foremost in mind.
While on a boat-based hunt, our guests are accommodated onboard the Amy Lorese. This vessel houses three guests plus her crew in very comfortable, spacious living quarters while providing a safe and stable platform.
While hunting in the back country, Kodiak Wilderness Adventures extends great effort to provide back country camps that are outfitted with the highest quality camping equipment to assure a dry, comfortable camp. Each location where our hunts are conducted has its own set of weather conditions, therefore these camps are best explained upon the booking of each particular hunt.
Food & Beverage
While at the lodge, meals are prepared with the attention to detail that one can expect at a gourmet restaurant and served family style in our large 1,000 square foot 2nd story living / dining area. Under the direction of Katy ( owner and self taught chef in her own rite), the kitchen staff utilizes the freshest of ingredients from the sea and the garden to prepare meals that are as memorable as the final stalk of a giant Brown Bear.
While onboard the boat or in one of the outcamps, your guide will prepare one of his or her favorite camp meals that will almost certainly leave you with a full belly and wondering thoughts of one Katy’s delicious meals back at the lodge.
