Our group stayed at Orca Bay the week of Labor Day, 2016 and experienced hands down the best silver salmon fishing we have ever had in Alaska! Orca Bay is ideally situated to access some of the legendary silver salmon fishing to be had in the Cordova area; either by land, sea or air. We stayed for a week with...

My son spent 7 days at the Orca Adventure Lodge July into August with a school trip. He said the owners, staff, guides, and the chef were terrific! This was truly a trip of a lifetime for a 16 year old and the Orca Adventure Lodge made it all possible! Many, many thanks for a trip he will never forget!...

We spent a week catching silver salmon, halibut and cod. Came home with 100lbs of fish between the two of us. The scenery was breathtaking. We stayed in the couples suite which included a large king sized bed, a jacuzzi tub, a big screen TV and a wrap around deck that looked out into the bay. This was the most...

My wife and I try to visit someplace different every time we travel from Philadelphia to Alaska to visit our daughter who works summers in Valdez. We kept hearing people tell us we should see Cordova. The ferry system is a bit convoluted, perhaps due to cutbacks, so it took 13.5 hours for us to get from Valdez to Cordova....

Our annual fishing trip is to Cordova, and we always stay at the Orca! Very comfortable rooms, stunning scenery, affordable rates, extremely friendly staff, and gourmet breakfast, lunch, and dinner (daily). The bonus, is that they can professionally process & flash freeze your fish (on site). Lastly, they have a heated 'drying room' for waders/ boots/ rain gear etc... this...

The lodge is located at the end of one of only three roads in Cordova, surrounded by mountains and water. On the shore, we enjoyed expansive views of the water and watching sea otters float by. We took a group of high school students to the Lodge and we all had a fantastic trip. The hospitality, service, and food was...

I spent 3 days in Cordova at the Orca Adventure Lodge and it was a wonderful experience. The lodge is a little rustic, but that is part of its charm. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Mine had a great view of the inlet complete with otters and an occasional eagle. The staff was extremely helpful, helping set up tours...
