Check-in and Check-out Times
Check-in time is 6:00 PM on your day of arrival; check-out is 10:00 AM on the day of departure (all times are local). Your flight to Ketchikan must arrive prior to 5:00 PM. Your 10:00 AM departure will enable you to catch a 12 PM (or later) Alaska Airlines flight from Ketchikan.
You will need to arrive in Ketchikan by 5:00 PM if you want to reach the lodge that evening. Recommended flights are #173, which arrives in Ketchikan at 3:15 PM, or #67 which arrives at 5:00 PM. Do NOT take Alaska Airlines flight #69 which arrives at 8:39 PM, as we cannot get you to the lodge that night. If you find it necessary to take this flight, you will need to overnight in Ketchikan (at your expense).
Flight Departure Warning
If at all possible, do NOT take Alaska Airlines flight #60, which departs at 8:00 AM. The Lodge cannot be responsible for problems associated with taking this flight. Due to the high possibility of early morning fog, it may not be possible for you to depart in time to catch that flight. Also, your last day’s catch will not be solidly frozen in time for an earlier departure, causing your fish to unthaw before you reach home. If flight #60 is necessary for you, it is recommended that you depart the Lodge the previous evening and spend the night in Ketchikan (at your expense).
Depending on occupancy, it may be possible to accommodate early check-in or late check-out to allow for additional fishing opportunities, beyond your booked reservations. Fishing rates outside your normal stay are as follows: half-day (fewer than four hours) is $400/person; full-day (up to 10 hours) is $800/person. Please let our reservationist know of any special arrival or departure needs and any extra fishing time desired.
Alaska’s Boardwalk Lodge affords a 15% rate reduction for your non-fishing partner ($250 per day boat fee applies if used).
With accommodations for up to 19 guests, Boardwalk is the perfect family or corporate retreat. Call our business office at 800-764-3918 for special rates and availability for private and exclusive lodge bookings.
Children under 12 receive a 25% discount; ages 12-15 receive a 10% discount. Youth under 10 may accompany an adult with the lodge manger’s permission.
Remote Fly-out Trips
Trips are available for both fishing excursions and flight seeing adventures at an additional cost. Rates vary depending on destination and number of guests. Please call for details.
A $1000 deposit per person is due within 10 days of reservation to confirm and hold the reservation. A second deposit equal to 50% of the total package price is due by 1 February, with the balance due 1 April.
For reservations made after 1 February, 50% of the total package price is due within 10 days to confirm and hold your reservation. Balance is due 90 days prior to arrival. Both Visa and MasterCard are gladly accepted for all lodge transactions.
If it is necessary for a trip to be cancelled, monies already paid will be rolled over to a future season if the cancellation notice is received at least 90 days prior to the date of the trip. However, monies paid toward a trip will not be refunded. Further, the lodge will not be responsible for loss of fishing time, lodging, flight delays, or any changes to the trip incurred due to weather conditions.
It is therefore advisable to obtain trip insurance. Information regarding this insurance is available on request.
