We often hear from our guests that Alaska West is a tremendous value in the world of Alaskan lodges. Once you’ve come to experience the fishing and hospitality here, we think you’ll agree.
Rates for our 2017 Season
Trips with Alaska West on the Kanektok cost $6395 per person for a 7 night / 6 day trip. We operate on a Sunday-to-Sunday schedule.
This price includes guided fishing, lodging, meals, and loaner gear upon request (rods, reels, lines, waders, wading boots and flies).
Additional costs include travel to, and overnight lodging in Anchorage, round-trip flights from Anchorage to camp ($850), Alaska sport-fishing license, and gratuities to the staff.
Alaska West operates on a shared tip pool system, meaning all gratuities are split by the entire crew, including guides, camp, maintenance, and kitchen staff. Gratuities over the past years have ranged from $600 to $1000 per person, per week – with a current average of $750 per person. We strongly encourage guests to tip according to the level of service they feel is appropriate.
Singles who are willing to share lodging and a boat with another guest are welcome to book with us at no additional charge beyond our normal rates.
Our 2017 season runs from June 18th to August 27th.
Our seasons book quickly on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you’re interested in booking on specific dates or pursuing specific salmon species at the peak of their run you’ll want to contact us well in advance.
We strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance for your trip to Alaska West.
