Whale Point is located on the eastern side of Prince of Wales Island in the Southeast Panhandle of Alaska north of Thorne Bay and south of Whale Pass. We are located at the end of the road on the Clarence Strait with views of whales and wildlife. Perfect for friends, families and businesses to relax, get away from “civilization” and rejuvenate while seeking world class ocean and freshwater fishing adventures.
The ocean fishing grounds not only offer world-class king salmon fishing but also spectacular silver salmon fishing. Guests also fish for a variety of bottom fish including halibut, ling cod, red snapper and sea bass. While out on the ocean you will be amazed by the scenic surroundings. Whales swim among the boats treating spectators to acrobatic displays. There are sea lion rookeries, sea otters, porpoises and abundant water foul and eagles soaring above the boats for spectacular photograph and video opportunities. Breathtaking is the only way to describe it!
Prince of Wales Island is the third largest island in the United States, with miles of road to explore. Those seeking Alaska River Fishing adventures select from guided or self-guided trips fishing for the elusive steelhead in the spring, Coho in the summer, and cutthroat or dolly vardon trout year-round. Resident wildlife you are likely to encounter are deer, black bear and eagles at home in a lush deciduous rainforest canopy.

Our stay at Whale Point Cabin was nothing less than magical. From our first contact with Bill Cahill many months ago, he was responsive, helpful, and patient with all of our many questions regarding the best way to get to Coffman Cove, groceries, etc. The cabin is amazing -- you can sit on the front porch and see the whales, and we could hear them singing at night. We saw whales every day, along with beautiful rainbows, sunsets, eagles, and more.
There is NO better place to experience Southeast Alaska than right here at Whalepoint Cabin Rental. Out of six trips to Alaska this one has been the best. The place and the people are pretty special!
