Their story

Orca Island Cabins are owned by Dennis and Susan Swiderski, who have operated the business since 2004. 

Previously they operated a B&B in Anchorage, and then a scenic wildlife viewing and charter cruise business in Seward. They also managed the Kenai Fjords Salmon Bake and Lodge on Fox Island. 

In 1996, they decided to move to Seward permanently, after falling in love with its beauty, small-town atmosphere and of course the wildlife. 

The Orca Island Cabins were created for guests to enjoy Alaskan wildlife and marine life right outside their doors. These yurt glamping site is in the prime location for the best in Alaska whale watching, fishing, hiking and kayaking if you want to get up close and personal with marine life.
