Having realistic expectations and being thoroughly prepared for a visit to Kodiak Island is an

important part of planning your adventure and will ensure a positive experience for all. Please

be aware of the following issues before reserving a trip with Wild Revelation Guide Service

         fabulous, enjoyable weather. However, the lush greenery of the “Emerald Isle” is due to

the fact that Kodiak receives an abundant amount of rainfall each year. Like all places in

Alaska, Kodiak is a very rugged environment where Mother Nature has the final word on

most everything.

          locations around the island can sometimes be delayed by several hours to several days

due to severe winds, fog, and heavy rain. Wild Revelation Guide Service will do all it

can to make the most of your time on Kodiak in any reasonable weather condition. In fact,

light to moderate rain and wind can often create a favorable atmosphere for both fantastic

photography and fishing experiences. If needed, we will always strive to offer an alternative

activity or a backup plan for your trip in the event of inclement weather. However, severe

weather conditions may cause a complete cancellation of activities, as safety is always the

top priority!

residents and visitors. A visit to Kodiak is a visit to “the real” Alaska!

alcoholic beverages. Clients are responsible for any extra or specialty food and beverage

items they may wish to take along on a trip. Clients are required to notify Wild Revelation

Guide Service of any food allergies in advance of their trip. Smoking is not permitted in

Wild Revelation vehicles or tents in order to ensure a smoke free atmosphere for other


locations which have the greatest potential for enjoying a desired activity. However, we

obviously have no control over the forces of nature. Fish, wildlife, and the activity of the

natural world can vary greatly from day to day. Patience is a must.

especially for remote trips. There is a moderate amount of walking involved for both

photography and fishing trips. As a general rule, the better the physical shape a client is in,

          the greater the opportunity for exploring the wilderness and experiencing more adventure.
