|On Whiskey Creek|
Welcome to Our World
Where we enjoy, every day, the beauty and excitement of the ever changing Twelve Mile Arm Inlet and Harris River estuary teeming with fish, wildlife, birds and sea life of all kinds. The waters of Prince of Wales Island offer world class fishing with an abundance of many varieties of salt and fresh water fish, giant halibut, cod and other bottom fish, huge salmon runs of Kings, Sockeye, Coho, Pinks and Chum, Steelhead, Dolly Varden, Rainbow and Cutthroat trout. It’s amazing to be kayaking during one of the big salmon runs and see thousands of fish all around the boat! We’ve watched Sitka Black-tail Deer walk the beach, a mama Black Bear teaching her cub how to swim, Bald Eagles swooping down to pluck fish out of the water, a small pod of Orca Whales hunting and breaching in the bay, Otters scampering over the winter ice and heard the Wolves singing their mournful tunes to the full moon.
Start your own Alaskan adventure from our cozy guest cabin here at On Whiskey Creek on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska. This is geared for you “do it yourself” folks who like to plan your own vacation considering your own needs and time schedules. Go fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, or go exploring the vast and magnificent Tongass Forests. There are many great rivers and lakes suitable for fly-fishing. Take a boat out to view porpoises, sea lion rookeries, and sea otters or set pots for crabs and go shrimping for the delicious Alaska Spot Shrimp. Dig for clams and make yourself a nice pot of chowder when you get back to the cabin! Take a guided tour of the fabulous El Capitan Cave and other karst caves, experience the wonderful Alaska Native culture with a walk through the totem parks or longhouses…… or just take some time to relax and renew your spirit at your cabin by the beach, catch up on some reading, writing, do some artwork or go beachcombing and enjoy the beautiful scenery, discover petroglyghs, collect rocks and shells..…maybe you’ll even find a lovely glass float!
And, of course you could spend some time searching for the ever elusive
Sasquatch, source of much lore and local legend.
