Like eating a salad off of a chinning bar, fishing is a fun activity that provides both an arm workout and a meal. Multitask more effectively with today's Groupon: for $112, you get a spot on a halibut fishing charter from Discover Alaskan Adventures, located in Ninilchik (a $225 value).
Discover Alaskan Adventures leads intrepid travelers on arctic safaris, specializing in the salty exploits of all-day fishing. Halibut fishing expeditions leave at different times, depending on the tide and fish's scheduling conflicts, with up to six aqua travelers climbing aboard the 28-foot cabin cruiser. During the 45–60 minute jaunt out to Lower Central Cook Inlet, tackle, bait, and lures are provided to all on board. Then aspiring anglers will test their mettle against the delicious flatfish, with halibut hunters typically hauling in two whole halibut. Back on terra firma, Discover Alaskan Adventures will fillet the day's plunder at no additional charge, and the friendly staff can also offer several packing options at varying rates—vacuumed, frozen, or airplane-safe.
Discover Alaskan Adventures
Discover Alaskan Adventures has led groups of adventurers into the Alaskan wilderness to sightsee, camp, and fish for more than 20 years. Situated on the bluffs overlooking the scenic volcanoes that line Cook Inlet, Ninilchik’s Volcano View RV Resort not only regales guests with breathtaking views, but with water, electricity, and WiFi as well. The guides take care of everything on fishing trips as well, from supplying the tackle and the boat to sending death notices to the fish's hundreds of brothers and sisters. At the end of fishing trips they can also fillet and seal the fish for shipping to their clients' homes.
