Day-by-Day Itinerary


Day 1

Day 1

You and your son will be met at 7:30AM at one of three Anchorage pickup points by our private van for the scenic  2 ½ hour trip to Great Alaska. After arriving at riverside Main lodge, Lunch and orientation is followed by your 50 minute flight to our incredible bear viewing camp in Lake Clark.   After the gorgeous flight, you'll spend the afternoon experiencing the King of Alaskan wildlife, the Alaskan Coastal Brown Bear.  Our amazing staff will share stories and teach you all about these regal animals, and you'll overnight in our custom hi tech weather-port wilderness tents with propane heat and light, surrounded by an electrified Fence perimeter.
Day 3

Day 2

You'll wake in the wilderness and enjoy your hot coffee on the raised viewing platform while viewing the Bears in the meadow at the foot of Mt. Illiamna.  Balance of the morning with the bears.  Following lunch, you'll board the plane and head back to the main lodge, to settle into your riverfront cabins with a couple hours to relax before happy hour and dinner.

Day 3

Today's a special day, and we'll target offshore fishing in Cook Inlet or Resurrection Bay (depending upon season).  Giant Pacific Halibut, Ling Cod, Yellow eye Rockfish and Black Bass plus Silver, Pink and King salmon are all possible targets, but the whales, wildlife and scenery are a close second in these amazing areas.  Incredible scenery, great wildlife and some tasty treats to take back home!  Opt for a day of Glacier cruising and whale watching instead if you choose.  Return to lodge about happy hour time!

Day 4

The Kenai river produces some of the most outstanding Trophy Trout fishing in Alaska..and it's an awesome fishery for expert fly fishermen and beginner spin fishers alike....fishing in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge with your son is all it's touted to be - clear mountain water, beautiful drifts, and great fishing.  Two to four anglers per boat will drift and wade the Kenai River in search of Char,  and especially Rainbow Trout.  Back at the lodge in the late afternoon.

Day 5

Another day of Alaska Salmon fishing in a power or drift boat.  You may chase the world's largest Kings, cast spinners for aggressive shallow water Silver Salmon or swing flies for the acrobatic Sockeye salmon...it all depends upon the season and your own preference. (five day trips end with a 1/2 day fishing trip this day and a 2:30 checkout).

Day 6

Day 6

Another great day of trophy fishing.  Choose from Kasilof River Salmon or Kenai Rainbow Trout fishing (as in Days 3 & 4). It’s your choice.  For more variety, you may opt to wade a mountain stream for Rainbow and Char or hike in to a high mountain lake for fly rod Grayling, depending upon season.   Back at the lodge by 2 - 3:00 and a well deserved nap or a few more casts right in front of your cabin door, prior to happy hour, dinner and more evening activities.

Day 7

Your final day with one of our great guides...Salmon fishing in power or drift boat, returning to the lodge at noon.  At approximately 2:30PM, you will depart camp for your commuter flight to Anchorage or be met right at the lodge by your float plane charter back to Anchorage.  Note- flights are  not included in package price.
