Located on the southwestern coast of Kodiak Island, Olga Bay is a remote community that offers unparalleled salmon fishing and is home to the famous Kodiak bears.
Olga Creek Lodge is the sole hotel on the bay, and visitors will be in awe of the amenities and activities available. The lodge offers extensive fishing and hunting packages, and provides access to Kodiak Island’s remote wilderness. Anglers from all over the world come to Olga Bay, and for good reason. With multiple river systems feeding into the bay, all pacific salmon species find their way to the bay. Deer and ptarmigan hunting is also available in the area.
Aptly named, Kodiak bears roam the forests on Kodiak Island. They are the largest brown bear subspecies and can weigh over 1,500 pounds. Standing at over 10 feet tall on its hind legs, the Kodiak bear is as large as a polar bear. Multiple bear-watching tours are available for visitors who want to catch a glimpse of the infamous bear.
A jet charter airport in Olga Bay takes visitors to a quiet section of Kodiak Island. The northeastern tip of the island is home to a small population of locals, though a steady stream of visitors flock to the area. While the majority of the area’s draw is due to its natural beauty and resources, visitors can also visit the Alutiiq Museum to learn more about the Alutiiqs. The Alutiiqs were the original inhabitants of the Kodiak archipelago, and the museum dedicates exhibits to their tools, dances and rock carvings.
