Read what our guest have to say about their experinece at Larsen Bay Lodge

"From the Lower 48, specifically PA, we are back from our OUTSTANDING trip to Larsen Bay Lodge. And as you know, we have enough fish to feed the entire neighborhood, but I am sure we will eat most of it! On the flight back, I looked at E and said "Can you believe what we just did?" He smiled so big, I thought his face would break, and said "No, I really can't believe we just did that!"

You all, and I mean everybody, made this an unforgettable experience for my son and I. Your lodge, your staff, your boats, and everything we did was so much better than my last trip to Alaska. Just saying how great a time we had doesn't seem to express how much fun we had. Truely a trip my son and I will talk about for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much! When someone wants to go to Alaska fishing, you can bet I will point them your way! "

"Thank you for hosting our trip to Larsen Bay Lodge! Everything from the accommodations to the meals was outstanding and then there was the fishing. Limiting on salmon and halibut while enjoying the scenery of Kodiak Island was inspiring. Our floatplane trip to the river, casting for salmon while watching the bears fish, was such a special day. Our trip was more than a vacation. It was an adventure of a lifetime."

"We are writing to try and express the true appreciation we have for Larson Bay Lodge. Impossible in this quick note, however just know we loved every minute from start to finish. Cindy, a little apprehensive before arrival about so much fishing, got "hooked" in the first five minutes. She fished hard for four days, caught more than her share, and would have fished more if we could have stayed longer. Obviously the quality of fish we caught was a big part of that, but Frank really made it an unforgettable experience with his knowledge, helpfulness and great attitude. Ryan also on the fly out to the river could not have been better. He was right there for any questions or anything we needed with a great attitude making it even more memorable than it would have been. Tim the pilot, another great guy gave us a fun, smooth and exciting flight to the river we will talk about for ever. We could go on and on about the food, but briefly, Debbie did a great job on every bite. We got her cook book and will be trying one of her recipes tonight. Can't forget our Isabel. She made us feel like we had our own personal assistant, taking care of any little need including that ice bucket in the room when we'd get back from fishing. Then there was Gabriel and Omar. Coming in with all the fish, there they were to take care of it for us, but first hanging it all up on the rack for those bragging rights pictures. You have created a perfect balance of family and professionalism. All your crew made it one hundred percent fun for us, while seamlessly taking care of business. LBL exceeded our expectations in every area including all the other guests we met that were great, fun people. By the way Mike, we can't thank you enough for the over the top offer of the truck in Kodiak to help with the layover timing. THANK YOU Mike and Tamarin for everything. We are already working on trying to get back there."

"Thanks for making our Kodiak adventure a lifetime memory! Every aspect of the trip was fabulous. From the transportation, accommodations, dining, guides, equipment and beauty we could not have expected anything better. Planning on seeing you again next year."

"I want to think Mike, Tamarin, and the entire staff for a great trip to Larsen Bay Lodge. I hunted out of Larsen Bay Lodge several years ago with a group of men. I wanted to take a group of six couples there on a fishing trip. I was the only person that had been there before so the entire group was trusting my opinion. I could not be more please at the level of service we received. Anytime 12 people are involved on a trip and all are pleased when we leave it has to be a great trip. Thanks for making me look good with the group."

"We had a great fishing trip to Larsen Bay. The fishing guides (Wes, TJ & Eric) were Fantastic!!! The chef and the crew that worked at the lodge were also outstanding. I would recommend Larsen Bay to anyone looking for a great fishing experience."

"Mike and Staff, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay at LBL. All of your staff did such a fantastic job in making our stay pleasant, relaxing and memorable. The food with Chef Debbie was exceptional and all of the kitchen staff did a great job. Fishing and wildlife viewing created memories and pictures for a lifetime. I certainly hope we will returning to Larsen Bay Lodge very soon for another adventure!
Best Wishes."

"My time at Larsen Bay Lodge was absolutely fantastic! From the scenery to the food, everything was first class. The thing that most impressed me however, was the staff's passion for what they do and their desire to bring that same joy to me as their guest. When we were out fishing, every time we brought in a fish the guides had a genuine excitement, even though they have helped bring in thousands of fish throughout their time there. I could tell this was an authentic response and just portrayed their passion and desire to be doing exactly what they are doing. This excitement was contagious and only made my trip that much more enjoyable. Thanks to all!"

"Mike and Tamarin, we wanted to take a moment to thank you guys and your crew for showing us a great time. We have been thinking about that trip, planning and saving for years and you guys made it worth while for us. From the food, to the fishing, to the company everything was more than we hoped for. You have put together an amazing crew that worked hard to make everything just right and we wanted to make sure you knew how much we appreciate the hard work everyone put in for us. I have hunted with several outfitters over the years and have never come across a group of guides, cook and camp help that was as hard working, polite, helpful and friendly as the group you have working there. We were especially impressed by the language/lack of cussing by everyone that works for you. It is a rarity these days and was good to see.

Based on the number of years that Eric and TJ have been there I am sure that you guys are aware of how good they are with clients, but we had a ball hanging out with both of them. They are both top notch guides who played a huge part in how our trip went. Wes was also great and we really like to watch how he treated [our five year old] Mya. The time he put in with her on the day he fished the saltwater with us allowed us to relax and have even more fun as it felt like she had her own personal guide that day. We wanted to make sure that he knows how much we appreciated that.

On our flight home we were already planning as to how we could make another trip like that work out, hopefully in the very near future." Thanks again

"We had a great time and wish to mention the guides and staff who all made the trip more memorable. Captain Mike made sure we knew what to expect and that we got to do what we wanted to do.

The camp is run so professionally, the program so well presented that I am at a loss to suggest improvements. I especially want to mention Pitot Lazard, who flew us with care on our river fishing adventures. The kitchen and dinning staff were also excellent
I hope we can join you for another trip in the future."

"We had an absolutely awesome stay at the Larsen Bay Lodge. Our trip was a birthday gift to our 70 year old father. He had the time of his life! Our favorite day was the fly out salmon fishing day. We saw 8 bears and limited on Silver Salmon! It doesn't get any better than that. This is a gotta do trip! Thank you to all the great staff at LBL. You are all fantastic."

"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. My stay at Larsen Bay Lodge was all that I hoped for and more. I am a novice fisherman and had a blast fishing for Halibut out on the sound and Silver Salmon in freshwater. The guides were extremely helpful and enabled me to hit the limit on most days. The lodge is first class in all respects – comfortable room and super food. Most of all I will remember the overall experience: the fishing, sharing the fishing streams with Kodiak Bears, the comfort and relaxation of the lodge, and the flying in to the Salmon streams. This was a vacation I will never forget."

"Thanks to all at Larsen Bay Lodge for making this a fishing trip I will never forget. My son and I spent the week of September 12th, 2016 doing our favorite past time "FISHING". My wife gave me this trip as a Birthday Gift. What a surprise!

The staff and guide were get a 5+ plus rating out of five. I have visit England, France, Italy, Norway, and Amsterdam just to mention a few. None of those adventures compared to the Larsen Bay adventure. This was my fifth trip to Alaska both in summer and winter so the weather was what one can expect for September. However because of the superior service and dinning we didn't even notice the chill in the air or the couple of bugs in our face while fishing. The fishing was fantastic both the fly out and the saltwater trips. As soon as we landed back in Virginia I was ready to go back, I just know there is a bigger fish waiting for us. But, I am not sure about wanting to see any bigger bears than we did at Olga Bay. FANTASIC on all accounts!! Go to Larsen Bay even if you never go anyplace else in your life."

"We spent several nights at Larson Bay Lodge last August 2016 and it was wonderful. Our luggage was displaced the night we arrived and would not arrive until late the next morning. We wanted to fish the next day so the staff came up with clothes for us to wear and we fished the next day! Everyday we were treated like family and I mean the 'good family members'. Each meal was deliciously prepared and we had time to get to know the chef and the servers. Our little cabin was perfect with a great view and so quiet. They even delivered appetizers every afternoon after we returned from fishing. Fishing was great from fresh water fly and spinner fishing to ocean bay fishing we were guided to the best spots. I imagine it won't be long until we come back and stay at Larson Bay Lodge."
