Rooms are designed for double occupancy and accommodate groups of 2, 4, or 6. The lodge features a main lodge with a luxurious dining room with theater-style views of Alaska's Inside Passage and also Alaska's most acclaimed beach bar.

The lodge's mission is to provide Alaska's finest service and create amazing Alaska vacation memories. The food here is also unmatched. Four chefs, along with visiting celebrity chefs treat 24 guests to unbelievable gourmet cuisine which includes wonderful fares such as grilled salmon, Dungeness crab, and other delicacies.

Guests can expect to fly to Sitka where they will be met at the airport by the lodge crew and transported to the island via a 15-minute boat ride. Fishing begins each morning around 7 am and lasts throughout the day. Guests return to the lodge in the late afternoon and settle in for dinner and relaxation. On-site services include a spa and an outstanding staff that is happy to meet guests' needs.

Freshwater Adventures at Talon Lodge

Freshwater fly fishing is amazing in Alaska. Talon Lodge guides you to local rivers where you can fish for spring Steelhead, Dolly Varden, Rainbow Trout and Salmon. Silver Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, and Pink Salmon are plentiful through thought the spring and summer near Sitka. Dolly Varden are char that resemble large rainbow trout. You can tell them apart by the spots. Rainbows have dark spots, whereas Dolly Varden have bright spots in red, orange, and yellow.

Overall, Talon Lodge is an excellent spot for fishermen, families, and groups. Expect clean accommodations with plenty of creature comforts.

The Joy of Saltwater Fishing with Talon Lodge

The local saltwater holds more than just Halibut and King Salmon. There are several species of Cod, Snapper, and Rockfish in the waters. A local predator -- the Lingcod -- is an outstanding sports fishing target. The long, lean predator is a fighter and will even bite wet flies if you wish to try your hand at saltwater fly fishing. There are also a number of Salmon species that are equally fun to catch here.

Talon's experienced captains target Salmon, Halibut, and Rockfish each day. The waters that surround benefit from being Alaska's best Salmon fishing grounds and supply Halibut and Rockfish within minutes of the Salmon fishing areas. This is very unique and a great advantage.

Alaska Adventures That Provide Memories

In addition to Sitka's legendary saltwater and freshwater fishing, Talon Lodge provides guests with a variety of Alaska Adventures that round out the vacation agenda.

UTV Safari and Fishing on Kruzof Island is a one-of-a-kind adventure that provides a wilderness experience with wildlife viewing and beachcombing on a spectacular black-sand beach.

Kayaking around the majestic islands and bays that surround Sitka places you within Alaska and is a great way to slow down and take in all of the surrounding beauty.

Touring Sitka is a must. Sitka is Alaska's history mecca. Shops, Museums, Raptor Center, Fortress of the Bear, and the Totem National Park are all fan favorites.

A Spa and Wellness Center Like No Other

The Spa and Wellness center at Talon Lodge has no equal.

Overlooking the water, this open-air facility allows you to feel, sense, and breathe in Alaska while you are being pampered beyond belief.

Now enjoy a water-side champagne lunch, lounge in the meditation room, or take a soak in the wood-heated Japanese Soaking Tub.
