ACCOMMODATIONS

Description

Our beautiful Kodiak Island lodge is located in the tiny Kodiak Island fishing village of Port Lions, Alaska. The Coho-Nook Inn is the center-piece of our community. We operate year-round to accommodate sportsmen who travel to our island home in pursuit of trophy fishing and hunting opportunities, as well as travelers staying in our community for business.

The Coho-Nook Inn is a modern, well-appointed lodge with a feel for the Alaskan in all of us. The decor throughout this comfortable 4,500-square foot facility is one that appeals to the outdoorsman and as well as the guest looking for a great place to get really comfortable. Our guests are accommodated in four private, double-occupancy guest rooms, each with its own adjoining private bath.

The great room separating the guest quarters is both spacious and cozy with its large wood stove and beautiful view of Settlers Cove right out the front window.

The large adjoining deck is a great place to enjoy an early morning cup of wake-up before breakfast or an evening beverage before dinner. Stroll from the front door past our onsite Post Office and you’ll find yourself standing along the shore of Settlers cove where the Bald Eagles, Harbor Seals, and Gulls of several varieties bid for the bounty of the sea.

On the second story, our guests are treated to a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding mountain peaks and rugged hillsides while enjoying delicious meals served in a large dining area.

Meals are prepared with the attention to detail that one can expect at a gourmet restaurant and are served family style in our large 1,000 square foot, second-story living / dining area. Under the direction of Katy (owner and experienced chef) the kitchen staff utilizes the freshest ingredients from sea and garden to prepare meals as memorable as a great day of fishing.

    BOATS

    Description

    The Amy Lorese is our incredibly safe, stable, and spacious custom-built 38-foot sport fishing boat.

    Since you will be spending most of your Kodiak Wilderness Adventure with us aboard the Amy Lorese, comfort is of the utmost importance. This vessel has that and more.

    Full sized walk-around decks, ample room to fish without being crowded, and room to stretch out is what this boat is all about. When it’s time to travel, our guests enjoy the comforts of a classic soft ride that only a deep-V hull can provide. The sette area is laid out in a manner that comfortably seats 6 people, and a large bathroom (head) is easily accessible in the main cabin.

    These amenities along with a modern electronics package, for safely navigating and finding fish in the icy cold Alaskan waters, three independent sources of cabin heat, a barbecue to cook up the freshest fish you’ll ever eat, and a 20-knot cruise speed make the Amy Lorese a truly unique Alaskan fishing platform.

    The Amy Lorese went through a complete propulsion re-power retro-fit in 2014, and we’re happy to say that our efforts to turn this classic fishing boat into a high performance, state-of-the-art fishing platform have paid off! We’ve installed a pair of Cummins marine diesel engines that produce 425-horsepower each which also meet the highest level of EPA requirements. We have gone to these great lengths to be responsible to our environment while simultaneously providing an even more enjoyable (and diesel-fume free!) experience for our guests.

    Our goal is to ensure that this Kodiak Island fishing trip is one of your fondest lifelong memories. Here at Kodiak Wilderness Adventures, we are committed to every detail and spend a great deal of time selecting fishing gear, terminal tackle, and the best fishing locations.

    We use only fishing lures and bait proven to catch fish! Our bait is refreshed often and our gear is kept in excellent condition to ensure our guests’ success.

    Details

    When booking your flights into Anchorage, you have the option to choose many carriers. Most major airlines fly into Anchorage. Most of our guests choose to connect with Alaska Airlines because of its daily service between Anchorage and Kodiak.

    The first flight each morning arrives into Kodiak at 7:00 am and other flights arrive periodically throughout the rest of the day until late evening. Alaska Air is also a partner with Ravn Alaska Air which has 4 to 5 daily flights from Anchorage into Kodiak. The flight times from Anchorage to Kodiak vary from 50 minutes on the Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 to just over an hour on the Ravn Air DeHavilland Dash 8 turbo prop aircraft.

    Although the Ravn Air turbo prop planes are smaller and traveling on them is less comfortable than travel aboard an Alaska Airlines 737, they are allowed to operate at lesser minimum weather clearances than the larger jets and will make it in and out of the Kodiak State Airport with greater frequency. For this reason we encourage our guests to utilize Ravn Air rather than Alaska Airlines for at least the departure leg of your travel.

    Our scheduled arrival and departure dates are arriving between 4-6 PM on Wednesdays and departing back to Kodiak by 9 AM on Tuesdays. If you are with us for a shorter stay (4 days/5 nights) the arrival day pick up time is the same but departure would be at 9 AM on Mondays. We have scheduled these in and out days to take advantage of as many open fishing days for Halibut as possible.

    Some folks prefer to arrive a day ahead of the start of the fishing trip and explore Anchorage for a night or fly on down to Kodiak and spend a night there. We encourage guests to do this for a couple of reasons. First, for weather related delays ( FOG or WIND ) and secondly to get yourself good and rested before you start catching large numbers of huge fish!

    Important to note is that we cannot pick you up or take you back to Kodiak early in the morning which means please do not book an early morning (9 AM or earlier) flight into or out of Kodiak (unless you are planning to spend the night in Kodiak). These include very early morning pick-ups or departures. Our lodge is located about an hour to an hour and a half travel time via our fishing boat and vehicle from the Kodiak Airport or a 15-minute flight from our airstrip here in Port Lions to the Kodiak Airport.

    humpbackMany of our guests have commented that the trip to our lodge in Port Lions is the perfect start to an Alaskan Adventure because of the views and marine life seen on the way when traveling by boat to the lodge. Travel to the lodge by plane and see the amazing snow-covered mountain peaks and incredible views of the waters you’ll be fishing. Either way, you’ll want your camera handy along the route for some great photo opportunities. We call these “Kodiak Moments.”
