Welcome to Gull Cove

From our four cozy cabins to our infamous cookhouse and gathering place, you'll enjoy our unique family atmosphere. We provide an experience you just can't get from larger resorts in Alaska. Escape from crowded resorts and cruise ships, thumb your nose at chartered tours on crowded boats, and experience Alaska - the way it was meant to be. At South Passage Outfitters we offer several ways for you to explore the Icy Strait of Alaska on your own. Whether you are fishing, kayaking, or camping, we're your base camp for adventure and by the end of the week you'll feel like a local. We book trips by the week. Arrive on Sunday morning and find yourself on the water fighting a fish that same day. Explore Icy Strait and Cross Sound at your own pace throughout the week. We provide a vacuum packer and 6 upright freezers so that you can process your fresh caught salmon and halibut as soon as possible. Once you've got your home pack, take some time to do some whale watching because we are a hot spot for humpback whales who have migrated north to feed on krill right outside of Gull Cove, and if you're lucky, you might spot one from your cabin porch. Explore the beauty of the Tongass National Forest and bring your camera to snap a few photos of the unique wildflowers and wildlife of Southeast Alaska. We provide the tools, you provide the adventure!

Hiking & Camping


Chichagof Island offers endless exploration for hikers and campers. From short hikes to the creek around the corner to day hikes up the mountain behind Gull Cove, you're sure to find solitude in the forest and on the beach. Chichagof Island is 75 miles long and 50 miles wide.

Kayaking & Whale watching
Paddle as far as you feel like in our seaworthy Eddyline sea kayaks. Take day trips from Gull Cove up Idaho Inlet, to Mud Bay and Point Adolphus, or cross over to the Inian Islands to camp overnight. Explore the Tongass National forest as we have a Special Use Permit to operate there.
