Wildlife is all around and we are the visitors in their wilderness home. You will wonder who is watching who. Week long guided photo safaris can be arranged for the opportunity to shoot scenics and wildlife photographers dream of. Icy straits is a short distance from our lodge and is known as the "largest concentration of humpback whales in Alaska". Sometimes at night you can hear them blowing as they rub their bellies on the beach right in front of the lodge. Sea otters are also common with pods as large as 200 animals witnessed. They get used to our boats and will sometimes let us come right up and take pictures.
Bears are a little too common, especially in the spring when they come around the lodge and give us some excitement. Later in the summer you will find them feeding on salmon and lounging in the grass flats of one of the many estuaries that dot each bay and cove.
Bald eagles, puffins, seals, sea lions and many other species of Alaskan wildlife are also seen in large numbers.
