Weather - May and June are the best months to visit Gustavus. The animals are more plentiful, the flowers are beautiful and there generally less rain. July and mid August will be the warmest, however you can expect rain showers almost every other day. Late August and September is our rainy season and you can expect rain daily. It is more of a mist or a spit, however, you can still enjoy your stay if you are prepared.

Animals - We see a lot of bears and moose at the Inn during May and September. You can expect to see a lot more wildlife up close early in the year, as the snow level is low, keeping the animals close to the water. Pack Creek on Admiralty Island is the best during late July and August.

Whales - Generally you will see whales all season. The highest concentration of Orcas is in May, June, and September. The Humpbacks are numerous all season long, with the greatest concentration in July and August.
