The owner says

Whale Pass Lodge has been turned into the ultimate do-it-yourself vacation spot in the Kodiak Islands, Alaska. If you’re looking for an all inclusive Alaskan vacation, please visit our sister property Ashama Point Lodge. We rent it by the night week or month.
It’s best if you have your own boat so you can explore Kodiak on your own. If not, day charters can be set up for you. Enjoy panoramic views of Whale Pass fishing boats passing by on their way to the fishing grounds, as Whale Pass is the main passage between the east and west side of Kodiak. In addition to the fishing boats you will get to see all of wildlife including several different types of whales, sea lions, sea otters and a wide variety of birds. These animals use Whale Pass for their migration route. All amenities are here waiting for you. This includes; bedding, kitchen utensils, a freezer, a generator with gas and all your basic spices. The lodge can sleep up to six people and there is a cabin that can accommodate three people also. There is also a Banya (sauna)… a great way to relax after a long day of fishing or hunting. For the hunter. Whale Island is home to the Sitka Blacktail deer and elk as well as the Kodiak bear.
If you want a vacation ware you can relax and make your own decisions, Whale Pass could be the spot for you!


About

Your host at Whale Pass Lodge: Bob May. Owner. In one of the most remote and rugged places on the planet, expert hunting guide Bob May has led scores of outdoorsmen and adventurers during their dream trips on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska. Now it’s his turn to do some dreaming. Bob sets out to build the ultimate hunting lodge that will become his own piece of heaven on earth. But even the most rugged Alaskan needs some help from time to time. That’s where his son and team of experts come in. Watch as they battle the elements and personal challenges to make a dream home a reality in DIY Network’s Building Alaska.

Hunting and fishing experience at Whale Pass Lodge: Alaska is home to America’s finest water fowling and Whale Pass Lodge is located in the midst of some of the state’s best sea and puddle duck wintering grounds. The Japanese Current makes winters here temperate, accounting for the large populations of waterfowl that spend autumn and winter in this part of Alaska. Collectors journey here for the area’s saltwater lagoons and harbors abundant populations of Barrow’s goldeneyes, three species of scorters, oldsquaws, buffleheads, and several other varieties of sea ducks. Puddle duck enthusiasts will also find mallards, pintails, widgeon and green winged teal on Kodiak. There is the possibility of taking several species in a single day. Whale Island and its surrounding land masses including Kodiak, Raspberry and Afognak Islands are all home to the magnificent Sitka Blacktail deer – a unique subspecies of mule deer. The Sitka Blacktail provides both challenging hunting and excellent venison. A stalk for Blacktail will take you through magical rain forests which are also home to the world famous Kodiak brown bear. Click here for quick link country guide.

Fly fishing or rod and reel fishing around our area is spectacular. Several streams located in close proximity of the lodge makes for easy access to Red Salmon in the month of June, Pink Salmon in the month of July, and Silver Salmon in the months of August and September. All summer long Arctic Char and Dolly Varden are abundant. Sea Bass are another species available and fun to catch because they are a scrappy fish that weigh up to seven pounds. There is always Halibut fishing just five minutes by boat from the lodge. Click here for quick link country guide.
