My brothers and I recently returned form our trip to Eagles Wings Wilderness Lodge. We had this trip booked for a year and a half and I must say that the entire trip was everything we expected and more. Mark, Beth and their staff (Cindy Gary and Chuck) did everything in their power to ensure it was a trip of a life time. The communication was great even with some COVID testing hiccups at the last minute. The lodge is beautiful, comfortable and well run. The beds were very comfortable and the food was great comfort food with homemade bread and deserts. We had great fishing with Gary for 3 days catching limits of halibut (small ones) many silver salmon and a few king salmon every day. On the 4th day Mark took us to the mouth of a small creek and Chuck guided us on a nice hike through the forest and along the creek where we caught numerous trout and a couple of silver salmon. I highly recommend Eagles Wings to anyone looking for an Alaskan experience with great people that make you feel like you are part of their family.

Our family had an amazing time at Eagles Wings! It felt magical to be surrounded by such beautiful scenery and wildlife. Mark and Beth are wonderful hosts and captains. We know that our group was a bit different than the normal guests with three young children under 6 years old, but Mark and Beth were so kind, thoughtful, and accommodating. Our kids had so much fun hiking, kayaking, and exploring the island, and we had a truly amazing encounter with a whale that I think our children will always remember.

Chef Brenda's dishes were delectable, and she was so sweet to set up a cooking class for the girls. Alyssa and Cindy were always so kind and helpful, and our kids loved them.

The fishing was so much fun, and
we enjoyed relaxing at the lodge watching whales, otters, and bald eagles pass by. We stayed in the Coho cabin, which I loved. It was very comfortable with scenic ocean views. Photos just don't do this place justice.
Our kids want to tell everyone about their Alaska family vacation. My only complaint is that we didn't stay longer.

Thank you Beth, Mark, Kevin and Eric for fishing adventure of a lifetime for our brother Don. Rescheduling 2020 due to COVID made it happen a year later but it was worth the wait.
We all gained about 5# each from Kevin's cooking and Eric was phenomenal on the deck of the Beth Ellen. Saw more whales than I've seen in my life.
Appreciate all you did to make it a great time in Alaska.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Eagle’s Wings Wilderness Retreat enormously. We were prepared for rustic accommodations and gray weather; instead we got pampered and caught limits of salmon on calm waters under sunny skies. Taking into account all that was included with the price of the visit, we received great value for our money.

While the upgrade to the newly built, artfully decorated, Moose Cabin was well worth the price, our fellow guests said they enjoyed the camaraderie of the cozy main lodge. The feel of the place was definitely wilderness, though Klawock is just a half hour away by boat.

We have visited various locations in Alaska over the years and were resigned to the fact that the food would be mediocre at best. Not so at Eagle’s Wings. Our Cook Kevin put the best food we have had in Alaska on the table. His seafood chowder (with clams he dug that morning) bested any I have had in any restaurant. Anywhere. And he served it with a loaf of exceptional homemade sourdough bread! They cycle different guest cooks throughout the season, but past visitors assured us the caliber of the cuisine is consistent.

There was breakfast cooked to order in the morning, packed lunches on the boat (made to personal specs) and a generous supply of sashimi and fresh smoked salmon belly for the cocktail hour! Dinner was generous portions of hearty fare, seafood focused but not exclusively. They made every effort to accommodate special dietary restrictions. Twice Kevin motored over to a nearby island to forage fresh sea asparagus which he served sautéed with bacon, vinegar and onions for a crunchy yum. Did I mention homemade blueberry pie? (Note to Kevin if you read this: I am kind of ticked off at you. Toni prefers your pie crust to MINE.)

This is starting to sound like a restaurant review, but the food was only one aspect of the welcoming sustenance offered up by Beth, Mark and their staff. They wanted us to relax and have fun. After returning from a day of fishing and the obligatory photos with our fish hanging from their sign, we napped or enjoyed a sauna while they cleaned, packaged and froze our catch.

On our fourth day we visited a nearby river and fly fished. Too late in the season for trout or dolly varden we were treated to an awesome display of pink salmon (anxious to hit a fly) sporadically bursting upstream in massive waves. Some of us saw a bear with her two cubs, though I missed them while engrossed in my repeated battles with those feisty pink salmon. Throughout the week we saw countless Bald Eagles, whales and sea otters.

Sure, the weather was great. The fishing was incredible. The limitations of the wilderness location notwithstanding, the accommodations exceeded our expectations. But I believe the reason so many of their guests are repeat visitors are these super chill hosts. Their spiritual bent, their ability to work so hard without seeming burdened and their gregarious nature, transforming a mix of strangers from disparate backgrounds into friends around a campfire, are what makes Eagles Wing's chowder for the soul.

Thank you Jeff! That is such a nice (and very thorough) review. We really appreciate your thoughtfulness, and the time you took to write that. We just joined TripAdvisor this month, so yours is our very first review ... it will always be very special to us. I've got to tell you ... we can't help but think that maybe you missed your calling as a writer?? Thank you again. All the best to you and Toni. We hope you'll keep in touch! Mark and Beth

My wife and I are 3 days departed from Mark, Beth and Eagle's Wings Wilderness Lodge and it's all we keep talking about. We are still reveling in the incredible memories, friendship and fellowship of the past week. These are the memories you hold onto for life.

I wish there was a way to give them more than 5 stars! Don't let the name fool you. Yes, this is wilderness. Pretty much as wild , rusticand remote as you could want, but this is the best of all worlds! It's full-service on all levels...from the fishing...to the meals...to the accommodations!

If you're looking for the corporate experience, this isn't it. Mark and Beth Farrar are not only the owners, but also your captains. They ONLY take 8 guests a week and the service is as personable as you will find anywhere. You arrive and are treated like family the whole time you are there.

My wife and I know about service as we've owned our own two fishing fleets and restaurant in Mexico for almost 30 years and have also traveled and fished extensively. There was nothing that Mark, Beth, Alyssa, Brenda or Kevin (couldn't do for us). Yup...that's the whole awesome staff!

Mark and Beth were great fun as our skippers (and we caught plenty of fish!). In fact, this was my wife's first Alaska experience and I think I've created a monster! Going back to Alaska is all she's talking about now. She's got the bug and caught her first salmon, halibut, lingcod and rockfish and although we only fished 2 days, we still brought back close to 100 pounds of beautifully packed fillets.

Alyssa was our all-around awesome deckhand; lodge assistant and go-to helper. Nothing she wouldn't or couldn't do for us or the other guests.

Brenda and Kevin are two guest-chefs from the S.Francisco bay area that created incredible meals like steamed clams; fresh breads; crab casserole; salmon poke and sashimi and chowder to name-a-few. Eagle's Wings is NOT the place to be on a diet!

The lodge and cabins themselves are cozy and comfortable and the kind of place that would just be great to read a book and watch the wilderness surround you. The whole compound and area is simply magical. There's really nothing around for...well...forever! Still, we saw an abundance of wildlife like otters, sealions and so many whales! We even took an off-day and drove 12 miles down a gravel road to watch bears catch salmon!

Just can't say enough about the entire experience except we can't wait to get back and we're a bit worried that too many folks know about this special place on the planet and they won't have room for us next time! We were very blessed to have spent time here!

Arrived on Sunday by sea plane from Ketchican. Just a great one time experience flying over the water and islands on our way to Prince of Whales Island. When we got to Eagles Wings it was definately a wilderness resort with all the amenities we needed.

Fished for three straight days limiting out each day on Salmon and Halibut. Toured Prince of Whales Island on the fourth day. Cabin was perfect and weather was ideal (end of July). Feel the value we received on this trip was definately there and the memories forever.

What a great place to take in the Beauty of Southeast Alaska.
Mark and Beth along with the whole staff were wonderful. Very attentive to your needs and wants.
Our guide Gary was very knowledgeable about the area after being a guide for the past 20 years.He knows how to put you on the fish and great resource for tips on improving your fishing game. All your catch is cleaned, frozen, labeled and vacuum packed in airline ready boxes for transport home.
The food was amazing. Coming back to the lodge after a long day of fishing to a cold beer and some appetizers on the deck and smell of fresh made sourdough loaves still makes my mouth water.
The lodge was clean and cozy and the nearby sauna was a great way to warm your bones after a long day fishing.
We did some free dive spearfishing while there in hopes of finding some halibut, or salmon to take.
Although we didn't bag any monsters, the water was warmer than you would expect and we did find a nice bed of rock scallops that were graciously cooked up for us upon return.
All in all a wonderful trip to a most beautiful location with kind and knowledgeable staff and great fishing.What more can you ask for.
Thanks again Mark and Beth and hope to see you guys again next year.

So good to hear all that Zeke! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We're always so thrilled when people share the experiences they've had here with us. Most often people only tell us personally, which of course is nice, but it's much more effective to write a review on TripAdvisor so others can also hear your thoughts. So ... THANK YOU AGAIN!
