Introduction to Lodge Trips

Nestled in the lush rainforest of Virgin Bay in Ellamar a turn of the century copper mining town Prince William Sound Lodge combines fascinating history, gourmet meals and outstanding coastal paddling, day hikes and beach-combing. Visit sea otter pupping grounds, observe a spectacular variety of birds, and frequently humpback and orca whales cruising past Ellamar. All make a visit to PWS Lodge an experience to be remembered for a lifetime.

 4-Day Three Night Wilderness Lodge Based Eco Tour

Add a little more adventure!

After a third night at the lodge and a leisurely breakfast, our water taxi will pick you up to paddle the outside of Glacier Island. Paddle with sea lions, explore sea caves with nesting puffins and cormorants. The exposure of the outside of Glacier Island to the Gulf of Alaska has created some of the most spectacular sea caves on the Alaska coast. This trip goes through our most likely area to see humpback whales, Dahl porpoises and orcas. We lunch at Whale Rider beach keeping a sharp eye out for krill foraging humpbacks. And while you are there the guide will tell you why it’s called Whale Rider beach! At the end of the day the water taxi will take you back to Valdez in time to catch the evening flight out of town.
