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 10 pm waterski run down the bay! Also nice to see a family working together so well… many talents here.

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.

You are privileged to a part of the world’s greatest and most pristine “country club.” Take care of it and all the animals & mammals within, for we are judged by the manner in which we treat our animals.

This is a piece of Heaven. Beautiful property, cabins, etc. The food was excellent. Loved seeing bald eagles and sea otter. It also caught the bug to be a fisherman. We had a grand time and we’ll return.

We have been to Afognak Wilderness Lodge 8 times, with our 9th trip planned for this year. Afognak Island is truly beautiful and the silver salmon and halibut fishing is one of the best areas and we have fished all over Alaska! We can truly relax and have fun.
