We just got back from our first trip to Whale Island. You see, we bought it sight unseen. It did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, I cannot think of any ways in which it could be more perfect. The emerald green of the mossy forest is so peaceful to the eyes. The blue ocean waves, the loons, and the eagles serenaded me as I sat with my coffee. The whole place is therapeutic in ways I didn’t know existed.
I added pictures to the Gallery. You can see that the Whale Cabin is largely undecorated, but fully equipped and ready to rent. I am having a hard time learning to run this website, so I have not added an availability calendar. Please contact me if you have those kinds of questions. You can visit our Facebook page and message me there as well.
The construction on the Sea Otter is coming along nicely. All I need to do is paint and put a ceiling in and it will be ready to rent. It will probably be late July before we finish the Eagles Nest.
Hi! Whale Island is in the perfect place to offer seclusion, but at a minimal cost and with little hassle.
Start with an airline ticket with Alaska Air or Rav’n Air to Kodiak City, Kodiak, AK; you will come through Anchorage, AK. You may want to use vrbo.com to book a B&B in Kodiak for a night coming or going, because you will want to rent a car and drive the 45-mile road system. The scenery is amazing. My husband and I compared the views to a combination of Hawaii, Scotland, and Alaska.
Contact my husband or myself to discuss options for getting from Kodiak City to Whale Island. Leave a message on the island phone during the summer months; I will be on the island and checking the messages daily. During the school year, call our cells (I can’t check my phone on the island).
