To celebrate our 40th anniversary, we planned an Alaskan vacation with an emphasis on fishing, bear viewing and Denali. Our first stop was Zachar Bay and it gave us both fishing and bear viewing! Andy was an excellent fishing guide. In fact, the entire family and staff participate in making the trip as good as it can be. From the comfortable cabin, the excellent meals provided by the chef and the welcome by the Eaton family, there was nothing we lacked. We would highly recommend a trip to Zachar Bay. We saw a sow feed her triplet babies, another sow try to teach her toddler bear to fish and we caught loads of fish, which we will eat in the coming months. Absolutely wonderful!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At Zachar Bay Lodge our guests enjoy the remote wilderness of Alaska's Kodiak Island while relaxing in accommodations that are both welcoming and comfortable. Our lodge offers a variety of different options for daily excursions ranging from sport fishing trips on both fresh and saltwater, to other outdoor activities such as wildlife viewing, sea kayaking, and hiking. We would love nothing more than to show you a Bear, help you catch a Halibut, and share with you for a short while the pleasure that is life on the Kodiak Island. ... more less
