Prince of Wales Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 3-7)

Adventure Alaska is a small family owned business. We opperate seven cottages as well as a tackle store on the property. We live on site in our own cottage. This means we are available to answer questions like 'How do you fillet a halibut' as well as give fishing or hunting info, weather reports ect. Adventure Alaska is not only a self guided opperation we also offer guided trips and day charters. We are located in Thorne Bay, a very small community on Prince of Wales Island but we do have a gas station and a grocery store. This means that though we have a remote location you dont need to import grocerys. Access to Thorne Bay is via floatplane or ferry only. This sepperates us from the crowded places that have fisherman lining the banks shoulder to shoulder. It is quite common to hit your favorite fishing hole and not see another person all day. Though our Island is remote it is large. The third largest in the USA. With many roads that can give you access to many lakes and streams.

Why the Owner Chose Prince of Wales Island:: We like the fact that we are remote yet still only a 30 minute floatplane flight from Ketchikan. (Ketchikan gets thousands of tourists a day.) Here on Prince of Wales we experience the authentic small-town life where there is only one grocery store and the locals wave at you when they pass. We enjoy the absence of hordes of people along the streams and rivers as we fish and the scenic grandeur of God’s creation that surrounds us.

The Unique Benefits of this Cottage:: Many of our guests often comment that we are living their dream! We don’t take it for granted that there is so much to do nearby. We enjoy stream fishing, boating, hiking with our kids and dog, spotting wildlife, exploring the shoreline, beachcombing and more. Often our business keeps us too busy to enjoy this beautiful place we live, yet all these things are only minutes away!

GUEST REVIEWS
Jason & Trisha,
Thanks so much for making my first Alaskan fishing week truly an adventure! The manner in which you familiarized all 14 of us with your equipment, transportation--boats and vehicles, services, facilities, and daily updates of fishing locations was truly the mark of professionalism. I've been lots of places during military deployments throughout the world but never welcomed as you & your staff did for us 20-27 August 2010. Especially noteworthy was your daily availability to all departing groups each morning, regardless of the hour. I had heard many laudatory comments reference your operation but was totally blown away to see my expectations greatly exceeded! Best to you & family and thanks again for the great support.

Sincerely, J.W. Felder
Colonel USA (Ret.)

We would like to thank Trisha, Jason, Jory, James, Rita, and Amy for making our stay in Alaska one to remember for a long time. Enough cannot be said about the accommodations at Adventure Alaska and the friendly people of Thorne Bay. For many of us this was our first trip to Alaska and truly a learning experience. Your website was very helpful in preparing for the trip. Good rain gear is a must. We were greeted at the pier by Jason even though we were early and things rolled smoothly from there. Everything from room and board to the Lund boats equipped with 4 stroke motors and GPS speaks to your professionalism. We chartered the Alpha & Omega and Jory treated us to some very fine fishing (see pics). I had a huge halibut on and managed to get it close enough to see before it decided it liked the bottom better. The day was complete with a scenic ride home including whales playing in the kelp. I caught the 3 largest fish of my life in the matter of just a few hours. We found everything we needed in the tackle shop equipped with anything from halibut jigs to the tiniest of flies for stream fishing. All of our fish were cleaned, vacuum packed, and frozen for the flight home. I will definitely be seeing you all again next year in hopes of landing the grand slam of Southeast Alaska fishing with a few salmon thrown in for good measure. My recommendations started on the flight home from Ketchikan as I was sorting out pictures and had given your website to several people by the time we made Seattle.

Kind regards,

David Willard

Thank you for all you did for us to make our recent visit to Thorne Bay very enjoyable. Our charter trip aboard the Alpha & Omega was successful due to Jory's commitment to satisfy. On a day that Mother Nature threw some very nasty weather at us he put us into a limit of Halibut in calmer waters and we also had some bonus rockfish. Jory also shared some great advice with us when I asked him about fishing the Thorne River as that was our plan for the next day. Not only did he make tackle suggestions for both fly and spin fishing, he also told us about some good locations to try. We used that information to hook several fish the next day including the the one in the attached photo.

The way you set us up for our last day of fishing the saltwater of Thorne Bay with skiff and gear rental was the perfect finish for a wonderful trip. Even though we had no offshore rods or tackle you helped us with everything we needed (even to the extent of a dot on the map) including the right tackle and techniques even how deep to fish. We turned that advice into a 13 Salmon day that will always be a special day in our memories. We hope to return for another trip of memories in the future.

Thanks again Jason,

Ed and Jane Vanderzanden

Jason & Trish,

Thanks so much for the wonderful memories as we truly had a remarkable time!! Carley and Lucas were asking when we could come back as soon as we got home. My father spoke very highly of you two and your professionally run operation, and I can now see first hand that his compliments were understated. Thanks again for your hospitality and attention to detail, we hope to return very soon. Take care.

The Adventure Alaska team of Trish and Jason, along with captain Jory Nunn put together an outstanding day of fishing on the boat Alpha and Omega on Friday the 13th of 2007, of all days!

Jory was courteous, attentive to the needs of his passengers and very professional. With five people on the boat that day he has his hands full making sure we were using the gear correctly and effectively and we all caught the limits of fish allowed for a daily catch. Fishing in Alaska has always been just a dream for me until now and thanks to the Adventure Alaska team it is now a dream come true. I would recommend this group to anyone, they will show you a good time! I know I will be saving this number for the time I can come back to this area of Alaska as I will without a doubt have them be my guide.

Thank you for the great time.
