What an awesome nine days we have had here on Raspberry Island. All of you have made us feel so welcome. The knowledge of Alaska that you have shared with us is something we will never forget….Our memories here at Raspberry Island will last a lifetime.

I’m now scheming to return in 2010.  My kayak trip across the strait to Afognak to see the Eagle nest, mom with chicks was excellent.  There was an elk herd over the top of the mountain behind the lodge….One day on negative tide there was octopus hunting.  And not to mention the sea otters, foxes on distant beaches, great hikes, and learning about natural energy sources such as the hydro electric and solar!…Birch you outdid yourself to hunt down the King Salmon and guide us to their elusive holes.  We are all looking forward to another visit. –  Meribeth

Awesome week!  Glad to bring in the biggest King of the season! – Chris

Birch, thanks for all the exciting fishing… –  Steve

What can we possibly say that has not already been said?  Except we feel like we saw the real Alaska and had the experience that most people will never get to have! – Trish

9/18  Our first impressions of this location is one of awe and excitement.  My pulse is racing just thinking about staying this week.

9/20  The reality of this trip has out paced my imagination; and please don’t think my imagination feeble.  Birch is equal parts clever, enthusiastic, kind and thoughtful.  How does he manage to keep up the energy to still be excited about another whale or otter or seal or eagle.  It’s totally infectious.  Our muscles ache with the joy of the wants of another day.  And Tiffany is no less wonderful, attentive, sweet, generous.  There is also another factor which is no more than the luck of the draw–the other people staying here.  I want to befriend each one of them.  I want to meet them all here again next year…

Thanks for a wonderful time!


I had a fabulous time here at RIRL!  You are wonderful hosts and offer everything one can expect from an Alaskan Adventure.  Great fishign, crabbing, eating….Well done on all fronts!
