      The Great Alaska Fishing Fleet

trophy Alaska trout

Since 1982, we have been guiding anglers and adventurers in Alaska, and we take pride in operating the finest equipment available. 

We use our 3 decades of local knowledge fishing and exploring the Kenai Peninsula (plus our top notch support and guide team, and the best boats in the industry to ensure you have a safe, fun and comfortable Alaska fishing trip.  Because we are fishermen, we are also total gear heads!  For those that are, too, here is some info about our Alaska fishing boats:

Our Alaska Fishing Boats

Great Alaska Willy Predator Tied off Willie Boats, Inc Predator - - Along with the drift boats, these are the backbone of our fishing program.  The Willy boats, Inc. Predator is the finest freshwater salmon and trout fishing platform in the world.  We'll travel every legal mile of the Kenai (the upper refuge is drift only, as is below Skilak Lake at times) to target 4 species of Salmon (Kings, Silvers, Sockeye and Pinks)plus some of the finest trophy trout fishing on the planet.  I've been 20 miles offshore in Cook Inlet my own predator (pictured) and in 6 foot Skilak Lake breakers (some of the scariest waves I've been around!...) although neither is going to happen with clients!

Willy BoaWilly Brand Drift Boatst Custom Welded Aluminum Drift boats - These are the boats that began it all for us..(that is, once we could afford the boats we really wanted!).  These boats are a true marvel, as the strength, maneuverability and rock solid strength of these boats combine with the skill and knowledge of the guide to explore our rivers with aplomb.  For those who appreciate fly fishing and coffee presses over 3.00 lattes, You will understand. These boats boast a lineage back to the very first aluminum welded willy worked at Alumaweld when they pioneered the industry.  In fact, we had one of those willy-built drift boats, was called "Death from above"..LOL

Great Alaska Offshore Fishing Boats

Alaska offshore Fishing can be a harsh environment, and having equipment you can rely upon is critical.  Here is a brief rundown on the boats Great Alaska uses to ply the beautiful waters of Resurrection Bay/Prince William Sound and Cook Inlet:

Fair Chase in Thumb Cove

Glacier Craft Offshore Sport fisher -"The Fair Chase". Our long range specialist- the Glacier craft is created locally in Anchorage and is the finest welded aluminum boat offshore charter boat made. We'll explore Kenai Fjords National Park as we target Halibut, Cod and 3 species of Salmon.  The perfect fast, safe and comfortable platform to enjoy this incredible fishery.  A pair of 225 Yamaha Offshore counter rotating 4 stroke engines get us there and back again day after day after day.

Willy Boat Raptor Willy Boats finest Bay boat, The "Raptor" - is one of our favorite boats, the quick Raptor has loads of deck space and room for 5 fisherman.  When the weather co-operates, it's a great  platform for Resurrection Bay Silver Salmon.  This boat would be perfect fishing Snook and Tarpon in Costa Rica to Redfish and "Specks" in the mongroves of Missisippe and Florida.  A great boat powered by a single Yamaha 150 saltwater series outboard.


 Equipment designed to Make your day better!

Our boats are designed and built with one purpose in help make your good day on the water better!  If you have any questions about the boats, I highly recommend checking their websites out online if you are in the market for a durable, high performing boat that will not let you down.
