Alaska Travel Stories

Australians in Alaska

by John Scott

I traveled with four friends on a "boys trip" from Australia to Alaska. I booked via the internet and from the other side of the world, this can be a process fraught with risks. I found the staff at Great Alaska easy to deal with, clear in their communication, and always helpful. We arrived to find the Fish Camp just as we'd hoped - great location, comfortable accommodation, and the staff from Dave on the beach, to Stan in the kitchen, to Asa and Dustin on the drift boats, to Kent the boss, all tremendous. The feeling at Great Alaska is "we're here to have fun, there's no push from us - we just want to help you do what you want to do - so tell us what appeals to you". To any Australians wanting to fish in Alaska, this is the place to go. We all caught great fish and had a really great time - and we are not fishermen at home! Thanks to Kent and everyone else at Great Alaska
