Reservation Details


Check-in and Check-out Times

Check-in time is 5:30 p.m. on your day of arrival; check-out is 10:00 a.m. on the day of departure (all times are local). Your flight to Ketchikan must arrive prior to 5:00 p.m. Your 10:00 a.m. departure will enable you to catch a 12 p.m. (or later) Alaska Airlines flight from Ketchikan.

Flight Arrival Warning

You will need to arrive in Ketchikan by 5:00 p.m. if you want to reach the lodge that evening. Recommended flights from Seattle are #789, which arrives in Ketchikan about 3:00 p.m. or #67 which arrives about 4:30 p.m. Do NOT take Alaska Airlines flight #69 which arrives about 7:30 p.m., 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.

Flight Departure Warning

Due to the high possibility of early morning fog, we recommend that you do not depart on Alaska Airlines flight #60 that leaves Ketchikan about 9:45 a.m. If it is necessary, we can usually assist you in getting back to Ketchikan to take that flight; however, it may require leaving the lodge as early as 5:00 a.m.

Additional Fishing

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 9 hours) is $800/person. Please let our reservationist know of any special arrival or departure needs and any extra fishing time desired.

Cancellations & Trip Insurance
