Whaler's Cove Lodge has it all!

Amazing Salt Water Fishing!!! (Guided & Self Guided)

Epic Fresh Water Fishing!!! (All Guided)

 

A Day on the Salt

 

 

A Day on the Fresh

 Whalers' Cove Lodge offers the best combination of fresh and saltwater fishing anywhere in Alaska! Our guests have the daily choice of either kind of fishing and may choose to enjoy a combination of both! 

Since our lodge is centrally located and we don't have to fly our guests out to saltwater or into a stream, it extends our clients daily fishing time. Our dock is located within minutes of one of the finest saltwater fisheries in southeast Alaska.

We offer:  Fully Guided fishing adventures, with highly experienced U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains averaging 20 years of fishing in our region; a Self Guided Package which allows anglers to fish at their own pace; or a combination package offering both guided and self-guided days. The best of both worlds!
