The owner says

Orca Adventure Lodge has 40 guest rooms each with private baths, and offers guided fishing trips by boat or plane, remote fishing cabins, hiking, kayaking, and glacier tours in one of the most beautiful parts of Alaska. Combine all this with the long history of the restored Orca Cannery, and you get one Alaska's most unique adventure destinations!
Nestled peacefully at the head of Orca Inlet in Prince William Sound, Cordova, Alaska has a mystique all her own. She dazzles you with glacier-carved mountains, wildlife-rich wetlands, lush forests, and countless waterways. Then, she blends this natural grandeur with exciting activities such as skiing, hiking, wildlife photography, boating, sport fishing, flight seeing, and more.


About

Your host at Orca Adventure Lodge: Steve Ranney, Owner. A cannery town 3 miles north of Cordova originally built in the 1880's, Orca has recently been rebuilt into Alaska's finest adventure destination. While retaining its historical flavor, Orca has full amenities to offer the most discerning guest. Each of the forty rooms have private baths and great ocean views overlooking Orca Inlet.  Access to wireless internet service and coin operated laundry facilities help to make your stay as comfortable as possible here at the Lodge, and our dedicated staff will do whatever we can to further enhance your experience with us. Our chef and crew cook up delectable delights in the cannery cookhouse next door, while great guides offer unique and safe excursions into the wilds of Alaska.  

Fly-fishing experience at Orca Adventure Lodge: Fishing trips based at our main Orca Adventure Lodge offer the most variety of any of our fishing adventures.  From our private dock, we offer daily departures for both deep sea and stream fishing destinations via boat.  Our skiff fishing trips are popular in the summer as a fun and inexpensive fishing option. Fishing trips include salmon filled streams within the Orca Inlet area as well as fishing the shallow waters for halibut. While these fish are typically smaller than their gulf cousins, the fun of catching fish within a few miles of our base can’t be beat! Our Marine trips fall into two types - we utilize our highly modified and high speed boats as a transport to fresh water streams for spin and fly fishing a great variety of rivers and streams. Summer fishing trips see the greatest variety of fish with incredible numbers of fish returning to the 40 rivers we fish. In the fall, from mid August on, we concentrate our efforts on the returning Silver Salmon. We also offer saltwater fishing expeditions for halibut, salmon and rockfish. Fishing the protected waters of Prince William Sound is a pleasurable experience. Click here for quick link country guide.
