Seal Bay, Kodiak, Alaska
Adjacent to world famous Kodiak Island, Afognak Island is the
premier destination for anyone seeking Alaska’s finest combination
of saltwater & freshwater fishing plus a wilderness adventure.
It’s a scenic 25 minute floatplane flight from Kodiak. In the
multitude of spruce-forested fjords, this fantastic log wilderness
lodge has been built & operated since 1973 by the pioneering
Randall family, providing classy year-round contemporary
“get-away” comfort. The lush natural beauty is unequalled, causing
Afognak to be dubbed as the "jewel" of the Kodiak Islands.
Sport fishermen from around the
world come to these waters to enjoy the successful pursuit of 3 of
the migrating salmon species (Sockeye, Pink & Coho) as well as
Rainbow, Dolly Varden & Steelhead trout. Enjoy yourself either
along the majestic shores of the Gulf of Alaska or up some of the
prettiest streams you’ve ever seen, where fish are thick.
Offshore, there is an abundance &
variety of other good eating waiting to satisfy your fishing
urge…giant halibut, black bass, ling-cod, flounder, red-snapper,
etc. At low tide, dig clams, harvest mussels or pursue an
octopus. A guest-freezer is available.
Multiple boats (cabin-cruisers,
kayaks, skiffs) & experienced guides provide yet another
choice...outstanding mosquito less up-close wildlife viewing.
Wildlife ranges from the Kodiak Brown Bear, Elk, Deer, Beaver,
Fox, Land Otter to assorted sea-mammals [migrating Orca, Humpback
& Grey whales, Sea lion, Seal, Sea-otter], soaring Bald-Eagles,
Falcons and comical Puffins.
The husky hand-hewn log facilities
for 12 guests are unique. Guest cabins are spacious & elegantly
rustic with wall-to-wall carpeting, queen-size beds, private baths
with instant hot-water & cozy living rooms. Hearty local cuisine
is served family-style in the main lodge plus a dandy packed-lunch
for an uninterrupted day with Mother Nature. After supper, guests
are welcome to linger by the fireplace, stroll along the forested
cove to delight in the resident sea-otters, go water-skiing or
dabble in some more fishing.
Afognak Wilderness Lodge is an
incredible experience for anyone interested in a totally remote
atmosphere where you can play hard, eat big and sleep deep.
