Alaska Shark Diving
Welcome to the world of Alaska Sharks and unique adventures! We are the only place in the world offering snorkelers the chance to swim with Salmon Sharks and are the authority on all things cold water sharks, above and below Alaska's waterline. With nearly a decade of interactions with these animals, Boone Hodgin and his wife Gina Hodgin have become experts on what makes these incredible animals tick. They've also added new and excited expeditions to see eagle predation up close from the water, swimming into massive jellyfish blooms and jumping in with calved icebergs at Columbia Glacier. They've combined their wealth of knowledge from years of interactions while living and operating Ravencroft Lodge to bring you an expedition experience in the last frontier, thats like no other! Join us for an unforgettable shark diving adventure swimming with sharks in the open ocean, diving sites teeming with sea life and unique snorkel adventures such as eagle predation and jellyfish blooms that can not be found anywhere else in the world!
Ravencroft Lodge is ideally located at the heart of the Salmon Shark migration and central to the best scuba and shark diving locals in PWS. Built by Boone Hodgin and his father in 2004, this lodge has all the amenities you wouldn't expect to find at a lodge built in the remote wilds of Alaska and are setup with scuba divers in mind. You'll find freshwater at their dock to rinse gear and hot showers to soak in at the end of the day. They have also paved the way for local and international guests to get up close and personal for the best filming and photography shots of Alaska's Salmon Shark population. Becoming the first operators in Alaska to offer salmon shark diving to the scuba diving world!
Divers will have the added bonus of reaching depths below the waterline to see Alaska's diverse aquatic wildlife that have been referred to seasoned international divers as some of the best undersea scenery they've seen. Often comparing it to warm water sites from distant parts of the planet. You'll also see enormous jellyfish blooms that only occur in a few places around the planet, one which happens to be located in south central alaskan waters. Swim with hordes of Salmon in clear freshwater streams. And don't forget topside photography of brown and black bears, humpback and grey whales, porpoise, sea otters, harbor seals, sea lions and numerous birds that include eagles and puffins. Without a doubt, this is the only place you can swim and photograph sharks one hour and turn around a photograph massive bears the next!
