My brother and I returned to Whaler's Cove Lodge for a second time and took along a friend that had never been to Alaska. Jay Brendle is a great point person to introduce you to the lodge and its capabilities. Ethan Brodey was our guide...More

My wife and I had a great six day trip to the lodge. I have so many good things to say, I don't know where to start. The first thing was the excellent communication before the trip started. The manager Jay Brundell went above and...More

Buddy, it was an absolute pleasure having you, and we're looking forward to seeing you again next summer! (And I like the new spelling of my last name. It's quite exotic.)

Yes. My wife and I travel from Knoxville to Atlanta where we pick up a flight to Seattle then onto Juneau one day early (Thursday). We then use the next day (Friday) to pick up the beverages we take over to Whalers Cove (you can only bring alcoholic beverages with you - you cannot buy them there). We also go to downtown Juneau for sightseeing and eating at the "Hangar" a great restaurant right on the pier where the sea planes take off and land. We usually rent a car for the day to take these trips. You can also drive to the Mendenhall Glacier. They have a great visitor center and you can walk out and see the glacier up front an personal. We stay at the Juneau Travelodge which is within walking distance of the airport. We then get picked up at the Travelodge early Saturday morning (around 4:30AM) by a Whalers Cove staff person for a bus ride to the ferry terminal. We then take a 3 hr. ferry ride to the lodge. We fish for 7 days. We return from Whalers Cove lodge on the same ferry that took us over who are bringing in the next weeks fishermen. We arrive back at the ferry terminal and take a bus (along with fish who are loaded onto a truck) back to the airport where we catch a 3pm flight back to Seattle where we spend the night and then fly home the next day (Sunday). So, if you take the 7 day trip you have no problem getting a flight back to Seattle. I would highly recommend going to Juneau one day early to protect your trip in case of bad weather of a flight cancellation. Hope this helps
