Our recommendation pack raft to limit weight and gear.
Please note backcountry/wilderness experience required. This is wild country, the city of Angoon has no hospital, and very limited items at store. You must pack in pack out all items as you would a forest service cabin.Cell service and LTE is available.

So a quick word about "The Lodge" it's the first thing you see on the island.
There is a small exclusive fishing lodge that shares our island.We never mentioned "The Lodge" because we believe our guests should be ready for the remote experience. And have your own adventure.
The lodge is anti sharing economy; anti air bnb and basically wants nothing to do with us. The owners have "requested" our guests have no interaction with, lodge, staff, or guests..
So anyway do not be distracted by the dark side their "amenities"" they will not share and make you feel bad"Run hit the ocean, hit the trail, do not look back and enjoy!!!!!!!!
Our cabin is opposite end of island facing Chatham straights. It faces the whales and wildlife which creates a wee bit o jealousy.
