Things to do in Kodiak: Enjoy a Variety of Activities

We aim to provide guests with the whole experience. It is for that reason that we have a variety of activities, adventures and experiences.

  • Pull up a crab pot full of tasty Tanner crab
  • View Kodiak’s picturesque scenery from a float plane
  • Kayak in the bay for the chance to see whales, puffins, and sea otters

We are a world-class fishing lodge and much more!



Kodiak Island is home to a rich variety of wildlife which includes the world’s largest bears, Sitka Blacktail deer, caribou, mountain goats, foxes, sea lions, seals, sea otters, several types of whales, Dall’s porpoises plus lots of eagles, sea ducks and other sea birds.

From the deck of the lodge you can see many of these animals during your stay. Our wildlife viewing programs are done either by boat or kayak. Our staff can custom-design programs based on the best viewing options during your stay.

You could see gigantic Kodiak brown bears catch salmon with their paws and fangs, experience an up-close whale breach or check out a guest favorite, the puffins and sea otters that hang out in Uyak Bay.


Flight Seeing Tours of the Alaska Wilderness Take Your Tour to a Whole New Level. Kodiak’s lack of roads, rugged terrain, and dense vegetation makes a private aircraft the optimal vantage point to explore the incredible wilderness. One in forty Alaskan residents have a pilot’s license because the state is so vast that a plane is the only practical way to get around. Alaska air taxis shuttle people around like the yellow cabs of New York City. For a truly unique way to sight see, request information about an add-on float plane tour and explore like you never have before. This makes a great excursion as part of your multi-day fishing trip at Kodiak Legends Lodge.


Get close to Alaska’s diverse wildlife via sea kayak in Uyak Bay’s calm, sheltered waters to see pristine scenery, distinctive geology and sea life. Kayaking is one of the best ways to observe our local marine ecosystem, which is known to be one of the richest in the world. Guests frequently get up close to whales, sea otters, puffins and many other local wildlife. Kodiak Legends Lodge has several kayaks available for your use. Don’t forget your camera!

Catch Snow Crab like the Crew on The Deadliest Catch. What would an Alaskan vacation be without fresh crab straight from the icy waters of Larsen Bay? Kodiak Legends Lodge has a number of crab pots that you can set and retrieve yourself on your way back in from your day’s activity. You can experience “The Deadliest Catch” (without the risk) by picking your own crab pots and enjoying the same fresh crab for dinner that night.
