 1  Rebecca Kopczak / Fishing and Wildlife Viewing
Wow! That is all I can think of to say. This place is amazing! The fishing with Andy was great. The whales that almost hit our boat and the sea otters and sea lions and halibut were wonderful! The fishing at Frazer River was indescribable. Those bears were the greatest thing I ever saw. They were sooo close. I never thought I would come to a place like this! You guys are wonderful all 10 of you!! And of course I can’t forget about that wonderful cooking. This was the best food I think I’ve ever had. Always ... view more looked forward to eating. I hope to come back here in the near future! This place is just soo wonderful. I loved it. Thank you for the lovely hospitality.

 2  Chuck and Karen Kopczak / Best Vacation Ever!
This was the best vacation we have ever had and it is certainly one we hope to repeat. We will recommend Zachar Bay Lodge to all of our friends and family as a great place to experience the wilds of Alaska. We hope it never changes and we hope to return someday. Three cheers for the bears! The fish were great, too.

 3  Pat & Cora Murphy / Little Piece of Heaven
This was our first time here at Zachar Bay. We came here for Pat’s birthday and to fish, but got so much more. What a “little piece of heaven” here. It’s truly beautiful and so peaceful here. Everyone is great. Staff AND guests. Couldn’t ask for a better group of people to spend time with. Dawn’s cooking was the best! And I SO enjoyed not having to cook for a few days! –Fishing was good too. Pat caught a 125 lb. halibut. We released it, but hope the picture we took turned out ok. We have to leave ... view more tomorrow, but hopefully we can return one day. Thanks to each and everyone!

 4  Tim and Tanya Ellis / A Fantastic Time
Our first visit to Zachar Bay. We have had a fantastic time. A different adventure each day has brought us halibut, chum, red salmon and the most impressive bear viewing we have ever experienced. Thank you for your hospitality and allowing us into your wilderness.

 5  Pam and Alan Schmeiser / Raft Trip
As usual, we had a great time. The raft trip was lots of fun and the weather cooperated. Everything else was excellent. The food was too good. See you next time!

 6  Janet & Joe / Thanks!
We’ve talked about a trip to Kodiak for years. Joe researched the various "wilderness” lodges via the internet and found Zachar Bay Lodge to be the most intriguing of all. From the moment we stepped on the floatplane, this trip has been the adventure we had hoped for and more... The excursions were tailor-made for our needs, the guides were professional yet personable, the cook was terrific and the entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Thanks Andy and Ian for navigating us through whale, ... view more halibut, salmon, puffin, otter, sea lion and bear country. Thanks Kyle for navigating us through the air. Thanks Dawn for all the great meals. And thanks to Marty and Linda who ran the show.

 7  Aileen and Barry Konovitch / Fishing with Bears
We arrived on Sunday July 24 to a very warm reception. The family and friends went out of the way to welcome us as friends into their home. Our first day we went halibut fishing. We were able to see sea otters, fin-back whales and puffins. We were able to bring back 3 large halibut. Our second day we went to Frazer Falls to watch the bears. (We actually hung out with the bears!). We also fished salmon in Frazer River. Our third day was spent fly-fishing for salmon. Caught 11 chum. The beauty of this area as ... view more opposed to other park areas is that there are no rules and regulations. One feels that he/she is really part of the environment. To fish in the same stream as a large brown Kodiak bear has been the highlight of our trip. Thank you to the wonderful owners and staff at Zachar Bay Lodge for a true wilderness Alaskan experience. Hope to see you next year!

Had a marvelous time. Seen so much wildlife. Bears, Sea Otter, Fin Whales, Puffins, Oyster Catcher, Deer, Foxes, etc. Mainly been on outings with ‘Ian’! Very good. Ask about “The Kayak Trip” Go where no mountain goats go!! You won’t forget it. I know I wont. This was part of a trip to Alaska that included Brooks Falls. The bears and environment is completely different. They compliment one another. I now feel I have seen some of the wild and untamed Alaska. Thank you for showing me and allowing me to ... view more be a part of your family for a short time. All the very best from the UK.

 9  Caleb Bryan / Wow!
Wow! That is only one of the great things that I have to say. I really love it here. I have had a wonderful time fishing. Everything has met and surpassed my expectations. The food has been wonderful the best I have had in awhile. I really like all the people, you have some great guides. I thought that Jim was exceptional. He was a lot of fun to be with. Thank you for accommodating us and being such great hosts. I hope someday that we will be able to do this again. It has been a chance of a lifetime and will ... view more give me wonderful memories to keep forever. Thank you so much.

 10  Dick Woolsey / Trip of a Lifetime
This has been a trip of a lifetime. I have read and seen pictures of this beautiful area and hoped that someday I could experience it in person. Well I now can say I saw and lived out a dream. You and the staff have made the trip even better than I imagined it to be. Today I turn 70 years old—it took me that long to get here. It has been especially great—my son gave me the trip for my birthday and he and I enjoyed every moment. Thank you for your friendly professional lodge.
