haven't been there yet, but am going steelhead fishing in april 2018. talked with the owner, brad, and he seems to be a very nice guy, along with his daughter tonya and their head river fishing guide..., jay, who lives right there in thorne bay, just a couple miles from the lodge. It will be nice to put faces along with their voices. thanks and i'm looking forward to 36 inch plus steelhead!!! See More

Holy crow, this is a no-brainer to book your dream fishing vacation at this place. My husband is the sport fisherman in the family and wanted to find a fishing trip to Alaska and wanted me to go with ...him. He researched the Boardwalk Lodge because he wanted to make sure I would be entertained in the event I didn't want to fish with him (a completely valid concern...LOL). Well, long story short, I got hooked (as it were) on the whole fishing experience..LOL! The staff are first-rate and treated us like family from day one. The fishing guides fitted us with Orvis gear and taught us both to fly-fish (did freshwater the first day) followed by phenomenal saltwater fishing for the next two days. We caught a ton of fish including halibut, cohoe salmon, pink salmon, Lingcod and Rockfish. The fishing guides made the whole thing fun, safe and organized. If fishing isn't your thing, Brad arranges for sea kayak tours or hiking, or you can just chill at the beautiful lodge in the hot tub etc and just relax. Breakfast is awesome, you make sandwiches and grab other food for lunch (for the excursions on the water), and then Jeff the Chef makes a world-class dinner preceded by incredible appetizers. Julie is hostess in the evening and she did everything to make sure we felt at home. Thank you, Brad, for creating a vacation of a lifetime for me and Chuck! See More

Was mostly along for the ride as my husband checked off a bucket list item. Fell in love with the lodge from the first step off the float plane. All the staff were warm and friendly making our stay ve...ry comfortable. Meals were incredible and fishing both salt and fresh was amazing. Had planned to only fish one or 2 days while my husband fished 5. I ended up fishing all 5 as well. Thank you Brad and staff for an amazing time. See More

If you're planning an Alaskan fishing trip this is definitely one to consider. The lodge is uniquely located in a cove that changed appearance twice a day with the tide. The lodge and the rooms are ve...ry well kept with a nice atmosphere. The fishing was great caught plenty of fish inland and on saltwater. The guide were very knowledgable and determined to put you on fish, with an added bonus of seeing whales everyday. The food was great with the gourmet chefs preparing a variety of foods I had never tried before. See More

Just returned from a trip to this wonderful lodge. Cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience it was. From the second we landed in our float plane to the second we departed, everything was ha...ndled exceptionally. Brad has put together a staff that is second to none. From the bottom to the top, they aim to please the needs of the guests. The accommodations were fantastic and the fishing and food and general hospitality the same. When researching a place to go in Alaska, we evaluated tons of options and this one won. And we are very glad it did. Our guides were spectacular. Fishing phenomenal and food, unbelievable the job Chef Jeff does. The personal attention given by the guides was great as well. My wife had basically never fished and came away very happy with the time she had. Chris treated her to a fantastic day of fly fishing with great education and success on the river. All of the facilities, boats and gear are first class. The people we met and have made friends with will last forever along with the memories. If you have been thinking of an Alaskan fishing adventure, consider Alaska's Boardwalk Lodge. You will not be disappointed. See More

My dad and I had a really high-quality experience at the lodge. We received a really warm welcome upon arrival, and we received the best care throughout our experience. The food was phenomenal. The fr...esh-water and salt-water guides were great at helping us to catch a lot of fish and to have an overall good time. All other employees treated us equally well. The lodge has all kinds of activities on top of fishing; we were able to go kayaking in the ocean and we took a trip to see ancient totem poles. The island is beautiful. Great way to spend a week. Loved it! See More

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been! The staff, lodging, food and fishing cannot be beat. I loved coming home with a ton of fresh Alaska Salmon and Halibut, all filleted, packa...ged and prepared for me. The days I spent on the river were some of my favorites as I caught huge Salmon. The guides were very knowledgable, pleasant and worked hard to help me get the fish I wanted. The food at the Lodge is 5 stars and I loved the cream brûlée! Overall it was a great experience and I will be going back soon!! See More
