Eagle Watch

Eagle Watch Package

Join us for 3 nights and 3 days and watch Bald Eagles at play. These majestic birds visit the lodge by the hundreds; practically on the lodge’s doorstep, you will see them nesting in the trees along the bluff, or on the edge of it spreading out their vast wing span to take to the skies. Observe their majesty as they play-fight with one another learning to soar on the currents of the wind. Stroll along the pebbled beaches to watch them interact with seagulls at the surf’s edge … in plain sight of the active volcanoes Mt Iliamna and Mt Redoubt.

Other seabirds join us too – Enjoy a dedicated trip to Gull Island to see kittiwakes common murres. Other birds seen in smaller numbers include glaucous-winged gulls, pelagic cormorants, red-faced cormorants, puffins and pigeon guillemots.

Moose congregate around the lodge at this time also … accompanied by their just-born calves with their spindly long legs. See them stroll across the lawn at dawn or dusk, feeding on emerging shoots of grass, or tucked away in the alder bushes.

Enjoy the extra long days ~ for summer means longer days than night. The sun will barely dip below the horizon around midnight to come up again around 2 am ~ it brings a whole new meaning to sun-downers on the deck! You will love the phenomenon of having such long days to spend, whatever the activity of the day is.

You will behold the most extraordinarily beautiful sunsets as it sets behind the volcanoes, and the closing rays of orange and gold reflect across the waters of Cook Inlet.

We invite you to immerse yourself in the natural splendor of this last frontier, its magnificent scenery and diverse wildlife, while enjoying the first class comfort of Deep Creek Fishing Club.

Our experience
We have over 30 years of guiding experience in Alaska, and always look forward to showing others the natural beauty that we see every day. Alaska showcases the spirit of the Last Frontier with its towering snow-capped mountains, fields of glaciers, hardy wild flowers, a bounty of fish and a vast collection of wild life.

Consider yourself invited
We would like to share this outdoor experience with you and your family ~ making memories of a life-time of fish you’ve caught, wildlife you‘ve seen, of the adventure you’ve had. We want Alaska and Deep Creek Fishing Club to be a place you will visit again and again.
