Returning Team for 2024

Captains Bob and Brian will be joining us this summer, along with Chef Vincent, guides Hillary and Dannie, and of course Fisher and Sage.  Annie will help cover for Sage before Sage returns from school, and after she leaves us again this fall!  We’re thankful to have a dynamic team familiar with the goings on […]

3rd Boat Serenity, Joins Our fleet!

Our custom-built Alaskan Aluminum Power Catamarans we designed and built in 2018 have been tremendous assets to our fishing program.  Wide, roomy, stable, fast, and very comfortable to enjoy our days on the water, we decided another one would be a good addition to our destination.  Serenity features our updated hydrofoil assist design and is […]

New Outdoor Kitchen and Banya!

The banya was one of the first buildings my parents built in the mid-80s and, while still nearly as good as new, we decided to disassemble that building last winter and start over from scratch.  We love the original footprint of the banya my dad designed when he built the building, but added some space […]

New Hydro and Solar Power

No Smoking Property in 2018

In 2018, we’ve decided to make Kodiak Raspberry Island Remote Lodge a no-smoking property.  This will extend to our fishing boats, as well.  If you’d like to smoke, we invite you to do so on the beach.  Thanks for understanding and we look forward to working with a smoke free team in a smoke free […]

Facebook Updates

Throughout the year, especially during the summer months, I do my best to journal on our lodge’s Facebook Page.  I also do my best, with our limited internet, to post video and pictures as frequently as I can, as well.  Winter time posts are whatever I can find; what does Raspberry Island look like under 2” […]

New Talent On the Gemini and Artemis

John the Legend and I are retiring this year.  John will return to his sweetheart Christy and their beautiful remote property on Kodiak, where they’ll grow many of the fresh, organic vegetables we serve.  I won’t completely ‘retire,’ but will step back and spend more time with my family and help manage the lodge and […]
