...not a once in a lifetime experience, a tradition!
Eagle's Wings is located in the heart of Southeast Alaska's world class fishing grounds. Three days of guided saltwater fishing and one day of self-guided salt or freshwater fishing are included in your package. Additional guided saltwater fishing days are available for a fee. ADFG licensed & USCG credentialed.
For saltwater fishing you will be supplied with all the gear, tackle and bait you need. Should you choose to freshwater fish we have some supplies available for you, but it is best to request our "freshwater gear list" before you pack and head north to make sure you have the gear of your preference.
Part of your day's bounty can be served for your dinner within minutes of bringing it in. Otherwise, your catch will be cleaned, filleted, vacuum packed, frozen and boxed..... airline ready for the trip home.
Fishing licenses and King Salmon stamp are required. So we don't lose valuable fishing time, please obtain your license prior to arrival. Licenses are available from the Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game at www.adfg.state.ak.us
You will never run out of things to do at Eagle's Wings. However, there isn't a better place to be still and reflect on life.
The breathtaking views of the glassy water and scenery are incomparable. Relax on the sofa in the lodge and watch a whale swimming down the channel, or dozens of eagles in a herring feeding frenzy, or a river otter teaching her young to swim. Take time to catch up on your reading at the "Landing" where you are close to the shore or watch a magnificent sunset. It seems everywhere you turn, there is an amazing sight to behold.
If you are looking for more vigorous activities, you can hike Wadleigh Island. The interior of the island has an old logging road where you can enjoy panoramic vistas of the archipelago; or kayak to uninhabited Abbess Island just a 1/2 mile away, and spend some time exploring....there are beautiful gravel beaches, fields of (edible) wild sea asparagus, and a myriad of sea birds congregating along the shore.
Evenings can be spent gathered around the fire-pit/BBQ to enjoy the day's catch and share the day's adventures with one another. There are also horseshoes, darts, board games and books to read.
Whether you come alone or with a group, your time at Eagle's Wings will be geared to your desires.
