VISIT AFOGNAK WILDERNESS LODGE
Our Latest Videos
Over the years, Afognak Island has picked up a lot of titles – but our favorite by far is its nickname, ‘the jewel of Alaska.’ We think this title is well deserved. It’s a reflection of the natural beauty and diversity of the region: you’ll find dense spruce forests populated by brown bears, Roosevelt elk, and Sitka black-tailed deer; narrow, meandering bays where sea otters, seals, and sea lions play; and the great expanse of the Pacific ocean, with regular visits from Killer Whales, Grey Whales, Humpbacks, Finbacks, and Minkes – just to name a few. Afognak Island is truly a special corner of this great, wild state of Alaska.
Alaska is renowned for its natural beauty and its abundant wildlife, and there’s little wonder for this – it’s a place of extremes, with magnificent landscapes populated by moose, bears, and elk. But while large land mammals like Kodiak Brown Bears and Roosevelt Elk may be the first things that come to mind, they aren’t the only ones waiting in this wonderful ecosystem – equally impressive is the population of sea mammals living in and around the water. For this blog, we’re going to detail some of our favorite aquatic creatures, what makes them so special, and how you can best experience them! So get your cameras ready, these sea mammals will make for some great Kodiak wildlife photography!

What Guests Say
“Our third time here and we find something new and wonderful everytime. This has become our Alaskan home.”Shizuko Kato, Osaka, Japan
How amazing to watch seal lion roar, brown bear cross the beach just ahead of us, see rare sea birds and end the day with a 10pm waterski run down the bay! Also nice to see a family working together so well… many talents here.Parvis and Kay Sadighi, Massachusetts
This was the BEST lodge we’ve been to. All the comforts of home in a remote setting. Very friendly people, helpful and obliging… like Laura Ashley marries Eddie Bauer! Caught fish here when all were getting skunked everywhere else. The lodge even added extra fish to our box of frozen fish for the trip home.Don and Joyce Benioff, California
Family feeling… just wonderful with small groups being a plus! Very accommodating. Lots of wildlife that we could get close to. It was truly Wonderful.Lon and Susie Byars family, Texas
