My wife Linda and I just completed our 5th consecutive year fishing at Whaler's Cove Lodge located off of Angoon, Alaska this past August (2016). We again brought home (6) boxes (300 lbs) of salmon, halibut, yellow eye, pacific cod and rock fish to fill our freezer and pass out to friends. The lodge is now like our second home....

Mark and Kristine Powers are the owners of the Whalers Cove Lodge on Killisnoo Island near Angoon Alaska. My husband and I had a fabulous time reeling in the halibut, salmon, and other fish. The staff is awesome and very accommodating. Some of the other sights you may experience are the Brown Bears at the Fish Hatchery or River Excursions...

Wonderful lodge, great location, excellent staff, and guides! The fishing was excellent and Capt. Andy got my wife her first King at 35.5 lbs! As a resident of Alaska, I can say that this place is special. The location has a huge abundance of fish that allows you to target big fish within minutes from the lodge. The lodge, food,...

Our extended family has been here four times over the last 30 years, most recently last week with 30 of us, including a whole bunch of little kids. Whalers Cove does such an incredible job, taking care of everything from arrivals and departures, all the fishing guides and fish processing, great food, comfy beds. The scenery is gorgeous, the fishing...

What a trip! Whalers Cove Lodge is wonderful. All inclusive.....they treat you so well. Cabins are neat, fishing is great and they process your catch and you bring it home as luggage (frozen). Best 4 days of fishing ever.

Well, we just completed our 4th consecutive year fishing at Whalers Cove Lodge this August (2015). Once again WCL exceeded our expectations.

We recently returned from a 4-day stay (we've been multiple times,) and we were not disappointed. Since our last visit, the lodge has been significantly upgraded, and our room in the 7-room building was clean and appropriately appointed. (Thin wall, though, so you may want earplugs.) The staff was cheerful and competent. A minor mechanical issue was dealt with swiftly...

Thanks so much for the review, Carla! We're thrilled you enjoyed your trip. I remember the day you're talking about in 2015 with the fish box truck issues! We actually hired an extra expediter who is permanently stationed in Juneau for our 2016 summer to help streamline that process, and it worked out incredibly well. The new position is now...
