Alaska’s Boardwalk Lodge was originally built in 1990 on the eastern shore of Prince of Wales Island, nestled inside the cove of Thorne Bay, Alaska. Each log was felled and towed across Thorne Bay, as whales surfaced around the boat then disappeared into the deep. In true Alaskan spirit, the raw lumber was milled, peeled and notched by hand, along this final frontier. It took seven years of hard work to finish this magnificent three-story lodge!
Since then facilities have been expanded to accommodate additional guests – up to 19 – and provide more amenities. The lodge is still privately owned and operated, maintaining Boardwalk’s high standards of excellence and personal touch that have made it the “showplace of Alaskan lodges.”
Three times “Lodge of the Year” recipient, Boardwalk Lodge is Southeast Alaska’s premier fishing lodge, where numerous individuals and companies vacation. We have been awarded the distinction of being one of the only Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodges in Southeast Alaska.
We have been given the exclusive Orvis endorsement and maintain this oceanfront property in accordance with the high standards established for Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodges. We are continually striving to improve our staff and facilities to provide you with the ultimate outdoor experience that only Southeast Alaska can offer.
The lodge truly provides a taste of luxury in Alaska’s vast wilderness. While the lodge can’t claim exclusivity to the exceptional fishing and alluring climate of Southeast Alaska, our staff, accommodations and gear are second to none. Our knowledgeable freshwater and fly fishing guides are Orvis endorsed, our Coast Guard certified saltwater captains are unmatched, our culinary staff is remarkable and our service is impeccable. Above all else, our goal is to make your Alaskan adventure unforgettable!
