With working in the tourism sector myself, I have discovered that most tourists planning their Alaska dream holiday may get overwhelmed with the countless choices Alaska has to offer- particularly in regards to the fishing world! So I have gathered some basic tools to assist this process move along.
Finding the finest Alaska Fishing Charters requires time, effort, and above all thorough research! The Kenai Peninsula- that is the most frequent place to begin your fishing experience, offers several locations like Seward, Ninilchik, Kenai River, Kasilof River, and Homer! Within these locations, you are looking at over 100 charter companies to dig into and filter out the best in the worst. How do we speed this up? As straightforward as it sounds– testimonials!
Reviews, like on TripAdvisor and Google, can make or break a business in a number of ways. As you can not have the good without the bad, the important point to search for this is the number of bad reviews you will find in comparison to excellent AND what are they saying? This is crucial to filtering out some of the crap (excuse the disgusting verbiage) into the legitimate concerns.
As soon as you’ve come to about three to five firms of interest from choosing through testimonials, you will want to move on to figuring out who has the best choices out there for what you’re looking for! Are you searching for a particular place, boat size, trip length, exclusive or celebration style fishing, or some particular species? While the majority of the Alaska fishing charters on the Kenai Peninsula offer approximately the exact sorts of excursions, asking these questions among your travel companions can enable you to narrow down the questions asked when it is time to make the calls!
Which brings us to the next step- phoning around! Most companies do offer online booking, but if you’re new to fishing in Alaska, I suggest calling to narrow down some specifics. You will want to ask important questions such as which places do you offer? What times are your excursions offered at? What do I want to purchase and what’s included? Questions such as these are crucial to making sure that you are booking precisely what you are searching for!
Once these are answered, you will be in a position to create a decision! Go ahead and proceed with the booking procedure for the charter of your choice and get ready to begin the groundwork for fishing in Alaska!
