Frequently Ask Questions 

  • Do I need to bring rain gear and boots?

At SouthEast Alaska Fishing Adventures, we provide rain gear and boots for your fishing trip.  However, you're more than welcome to bring your own gear if preferred.   

  • Is there a toilet on the boat?

Our boat has a porta-potti; men typically use the "pee-bucket."  

  • What is the weather like in Craig, Alaska?

During the fishing months; June-July-August, the weather in Craig is 50-60ºF with a good chance of rain.  Pack for rain or shine (sun screen, sun glasses, and hat) and dress in layers to prepare for weather changes.  

  • Does Craig have cell phone coverage?

The west side of Prince of Wales Island (Craig) has great cell phone service; if your carrier is AT&T.  If your carrier is Verizon or T-Mobile, cell phone service is marginal.


  • How do I get my fish home? 

Your fresh fish will be filleted, vacuum sealed, and flash frozen.  After the fish is frozen, packages are evenly distributed into 50 pound waxed boxes.  Each box will include your name, address, phone number, and will be ready to be checked-in as baggage for your departing flight home.  

  • What flight service do we take to POW?

Most of our guests fly to and from Prince of Wales on Island Air Express.  Island Air operates Cessna Caravan airplanes that are instrument-rated.  Flying with Island Air from Ketchikan to Klawock is a 30 minute flight.  Once you arrive at the Klawock Airport we will be there to greet you and transport you to SouthEast Alaska Fishing Adventures Lodge.   

  • How does the ferry work? 

The Inter-Island Ferry departs Hollis each morning at 8 a.m. and leaves Ketchikan at 3:30 p.m. each afternoon. The one-way ferry ride is 36 miles long.  The run time of each sailing is three hours.  Once you arrive at the ferry terminal in Hollis, we will be there to greet you and transport you back to SouthEast Alaska Fishing Adventures Lodge.  Drive time from Hollis to our Lodge is 45-minutes.  Traveling on the IFA Ferry is a relaxing, cost efficient way to travel to Prince of Wales Island.  

  • How do I obtain a fishing license?

In Alaska, everyone over the age of 16-years is required to purchase a fishing license.  Licenses are available for residents, non-residents, members of the military, and residents who are Disabled Veterans or who are age 60 and over. Kids 15-years of age and under do not need to purchase a fishing license.  We carry a youth-license on the boat for them.  We recommend you purchase your fishing license and king salmon stamp before arriving in Craig, Alaska.  Fishing licenses, as well as a king salmon stamp, can be purchased online.

  • Tipping 

At SouthEast Alaska Fishing Adventures, we work hard to give you the best Alaskan experience.  While not required, tipping is generally customary for charter fishing boats and is greatly appreciated.  For ease of reference, an average tip is 10% of each anglers's individual fishing package.
