Whether you're a fisherman, a photographer or a discriminating traveler looking for an authentic and unique experience, this tour will surely be a highlight of any Alaska visit.
This unique tour combines action and adventure starting with your primary mode of transport - a floatplane. Any Juneau local will tell you that the only way to experience southeast Alaska is a flight to the heart of the back country, which road access simply doesn't allow. After you've been provided with waders and rain gear, a short yet exhilarating flight will take you over breathtaking scenery. Once up in the air, you will have a good chance of spotting many wild animals including brown and black bears, bald eagles, deer and whales.
This unique five-and-a-half-hour tour caters both to the first-timer with hands-on instruction available, and also the experienced fly caster, who will enjoy the challenge of Alaska fishing and guide interaction. Fishing here is done on an eco-conscious catch-and-release basis, and you will pursue cutthroat trout, Dolly Varden trout and various salmon species. First-class gear including tackle and flies will also be provided along with a smoked salmon snack and beverages.
Your memorable day ends aboard the floatplane for the breathtaking flight back to the Juneau.
