There's so much to explore here in Alaska with four distinct tours. Trips include shark snorkeling and diving, as well as Alaska's famous guided halibut and salmon fishing expeditions! SNORKEL ONLY - Salmon Sharks are reserved for snorkelers since we've found the best way to interact with the sharks is at the surface near the boat's shadow and not actually diving at depth with them. DIVE TOUR #1 - Moon Jellyfish diving is where we focus on diving in Alaska with 3x dives a day. We showcase the best the area has to offer with the focus on HUGE jellyfish blooms as the highlight of the trip. DIVE TOUR #2 - Sleeper Sharks are a different tour all together. There is much more patience needed and lots of time sitting, waiting for the right animal to come to bait. This is an all day process, everyday until success. These tours only have a few dives. But the payoff is swimming with what may be the oldest animal on the planet. GUIDED FISHING - With fishing grounds literally in front of the lodge, you'll find incredible Halibut and Salmon fishing in calm protected waters! Finish the day off at the lodge campfire talking about the days adventures.
We are the only operation in the world offering snorkelers the chance to swim with Salmon Sharks and are the authority on Salmon Shark migration, behaviors and feeding patterns.

Often comparing it to warm water sites from distant parts of the planet. You'll also see enormous jellyfish blooms that only occur in a few places around the planet, one which happens to be located in south central alaskan waters. Swim with hordes of Salmon in clear freshwater streams.
