Within The Wild – Tutka Bay Lodge

Within the Wild - Tutka Bay Lodge

Explore the Last Frontier like a true Alaskan.

Owned and operated by Alaskan natives Kirsten and Carl Dixon, Tutka Bay has been a source of wonder and adventure since the day it’s doors opened. The glorious adventure lodge is situated on a 9-mile flord near the historic Herring Islands and the village of Seldovia along the diverse and unique Kachemak Bay. A private sand cove is ringed by ancient rocks that hold archaeological secrets from the past. An adjacent private two-mile hiking trail is located nearby for guest use. Vistors can take an afternoon stroll along a sheltered cove and a peek off of the dock at low tide presents the opportunity to see sunstars, anemones, jellyfish and other sea creatures.

Regenerative Impact

Tutka Bay Lodge invites guests to explore Alaska’s rich coastline in low-impact, sustainable fashion.

As with all other lodges under the Within the Wild umbrella, Tutka Bay Lodge is purposefully kept small and personal, private and sustainable as part of its commitment to the environment. WIth only six guest accommodations in each lodge, Tutka Bay Lodge’s footprint is small and manageable.
To minimize packaging waste, Tutka Bay Lodge buys non-perishables such as rice, beans, flours, grains in bulk; these are then stored in sealable air-tight (and pest-proof) bins to maximize their shelf life. Perishables and fresh products are sourced from farmers who deliver in returnable boxes or in totes the lodge provides, sending them back for refills. Kitchen waste and food scraps are weighed and discussed, then placed into tubs and sent to a local farmer to be used as compost and animal feed.
Tutka Bay Lodge uses water gathered from a local spring and stores it for seasonal use. It also has its own off-grid self-contained sewer and water systems. Besides buying from local farmers, it prioritizes the use of ingredients found in its natural landscapes, both wild and cultivated. The lodge also uses high-tunnel greenhouses to grow its own organic harvest as well as water catchment for watering these spaces.
