Island View Resort & Charters

Sitka fishing is unique. We are located along the outer coast of Southeast Alaska where we intercept large migrating schools of wild king salmon. The many islands surrounding Sitka also offer excellent opportunities all season long to fish alongside deep continental shelves for the highly prized halibut and other bottom dwelling species.

Baranof Wilderness Lodge

Our Lodge is nestled in Warm Springs Bay on the east side of Baranof Island, 20 air miles east of Sitka. A short, spectacular float plane ride from Sitka delivers you directly to our lodge side dock. Warm Springs Bay is named for the remarkable natural hot springs, enjoyed today as it was by native Tlingit Indians for centuries.

History of Sitka, Alaska

 History, culture and wildlife blend in the Sitka area. As the former capital of Russian Alaska, Sitka, on Baranof Island, is where humans and wildlife have harmonized for thousands of years.

The Kiksadi Clan of the Tlingit Indians chose what is now called Baranof Island as their home, establishing a community at what is present-day Sitka. The Tlingits lived undisturbed until 1799, when Russian explorers arrived and Alexander Baranof, Manager of the Russian-American Company, built a fort a few miles to the north. After a series of clashes, the Tlingits attacked and destroyed the Russian outpost in 1802. But Baranof retaliated and soon pushed the natives from the area.

The Russians renamed the settlement New Archangel. The Russian Orthodox Church spread its influence into the area and built fortress-like structures on a hilltop overlooking the shoreline; this area is now known as Castle Hill.
Rich wildlife resources in this area allowed the Russian-American Company to flourish - for a time it was the most profitable fur trader in the world. But over harvest of sea otters and other animals caused the Russians to lose interest in the new world. In 1867, the United States purchased Alaska from the Russians for $7.2 million. The transfer ceremony occurred in Sitka. Today, the Sitka culture is a blend of Tlingit, Russian and American.

Sitka Alaska Wildlife:

Sitka is one of the world's best places to view wildlife. The surrounding waters provide important feeding grounds for many species of whale. Sea otters, sea lions and other marine wildlife are abundant in this area. Summertime provides wonderful opportunities to view many kinds of sea birds. On St. Lazaria Island, a federal wildlife refuge at the mouth of Sitka Sound, sea birds nest and raise their young on sheer volcanic cliffs where they are easy to spot. You can always see puffins, murres, petrels and other species.
