Changing Tides Inn is surrounded by specatcular salt and freshwater fishing.  These are just a few photos to give you a taste of what awaits you during your stay.  Booking early is important as both lodging accommodations and fishing charters are snapped up quickly.







We can connect you with several excellent local fishing guides to maximize your fishing opportunities.  At right, Rob is helping Val's dad show off a halibut caught on a day trip out of Klawock Harbor.







This is Val with her first King Salmon.  King's are fun to fish for in May, June and July.  The island has a great King run in nearby Port St. Nicholas Creek.  

Wildlife at the Inn

Surrounded by the forest and ocean, Changing Tides Inn draws plenty of visitors that aren't human at all! All of the species pictured here are often seen on the inn's grounds or on the water just in front of the suites. In fact, most of these photos were taken by the hosts themselves, so don't be surprised when a wandering fawn or a swooping bald eagle drop in to say hello while you're here.
