Whale Watching

Alaskan fishing while being surrounded by huge whales in their native habitat counts as one of life's greatest experiences. Each summer 15-20 humpback whales regularly feed in Glacier Bay National Park waters. They migrate here from their winter home in the warm waters off Hawaii and can regularly be seen from the Great Chinook Lodge fishing boats. Special regulations go into effect when large concentrations of whales are in the park.

"An unbelievable experience…the most exciting fishing adventure of my life. The Lodge was very comfortable and we enjoyed your staff with their home-made approach to making us happy. Fishing with captain John was beyond our expectations! I was amazed with his fishing knowledge and the great stories he shared with us. I learned a lot about Alaska and salmon and halibut fishing. Whales were always around us! It was worth the travel from Prague.

Thank you Great Chinook and Captain John. My fishing pictures and your stories are all over Prague now! I'll be back!"
