My friends and I were celebrating the accomplishment of one of our friends and selected Orca Island Cabins as our retreat. As is likely to happen in Alaska, (people this isn't Southern California) it rained during our stay. We were prepared with proper rain gear...More

Thank you for your kind remarks on your stay with us this past May. As you discovered, the month of May is a wonderful time to visit a remote wilderness setting as we have in Humpy Cove. Our goal has always been to provide comfortable...More

Thank you for your inquiry. All of our cabins are Ocean view properties, none of them are inland. Although one cabin does look like it is inland when viewing from the water; once you are on the yurt's deck you see that it is above the water and has the added bonus of being the most private. We do have cabins that overhang the water, but all overlook the water, and all have unbroken views of Resurrection Bay.
We have seven units, and thus our booking system requires the flexibility of arranging cabin allotments closer to the day of arrival. When requests are made we make every attempt to accommodate them. It is however challenging to facilitate guests checking in and out on different days of the week. Therefore we cannot guarantee cabin requests.
We hope that you will use the reviews as a reference; all the cabins are unique in there own way, and we have yet to received a complaint about any of the views from any of our cabins.
In the past we did not have a staff member on grounds. We recognize the need for this and as of last summer we now have an Orca Island Cabins staff on the property at all times. We do not clean fish, although we have the equipment and can help get you set up so you can do so on your own on the dock.
Please feel free to call me directly should you have other questions.
