We are so excited to announce that there have not only made major improvements to the lodge this year but that we are also busy expanding our services that will bring some brand new all inclusive trip opportunities to our guests so please keep an eye out on our site and we look forward to seeing some of you in 2023!

Since a large part of the adventure is the journey to and from Port Protection, consult with us so we can assist you.  You would fly to Ketchikan or Wrangell, booking a flight with Taquan Air, being dropped off at Port Protection on a float plane.  Your specific goals and ideas will be discussed and plans for your magnificent trip will be reviewed and finalized.

Hans will meet and greet you at the dock and take you to the lodge. 

As another option, guests could rent a car in Ketchikan and take the Alaska State Ferry from Ketchikan to Hollis. From Hollis you would drive about 95 scenic miles north, passing through the Rain Forest where you will see deer, bear and other wildlife as you continue to the end of the road. Hans will meet you there, boating you to Port Protection. This may require an over night stay on Prince of Whales Island, staying at Craig, Alaska then continuing your journey and adventure.

This year, we’ve added meals to your entire wilderness experience, prepared by  Han’s mother Jan.  Jan’s food service experience is extensive; she is an excellent chef! You will be treated to local cuisine to satisfy your appetites.   Kitchen will be open 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM

Hans and his Team will work with you  to schedule fishing and touring.  At the end of the day, join us at the bon fire for fish cleaning and story telling.

Enrich your life time experience with Hans Porter and enjoy the wonders of Alaska as the last Frontier! 

Reserve your dates from June 15 to the end of the Alaska travel season, weather permitting.

The Lodge is located one quarter mile from the dock. All visitors MUST be sufficiently fit and healthy to hike to and from the Lodge to the dock.


Please find booking, deposit, refund and payment information on our "Pricing and Booking" page.


COVID-19 sanitation measures are in place. Our premises are sanitized before, during and after your visit. 

We respectfully ask our guests to maintain social distancing

during visits. 

The small population of Port Protection would be devastated

if any residents were to fall ill.


If you are interested in visiting Port Protection, we would love to be your host. After you've reviewed our Pricing and Booking page, use our contact form to get in touch. One of us will get back to you as soon as possible.
