Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

I am interested in this offer for my husband; however, I would travel with him but would not want to participate in the fishing. Could I purchase one Groupon offer but stay with him at the lodge? If so, what would be the extra cost, etc.?

RParzek  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Yes you may purchase just one Groupon. The additional lodging fee would be $25 per night/per person. Linda (907) 394-1616

Q:

What is the charge for vacuum packaging of fish? Is there a rental car return at the destination so we would not have to keep the car for the duration of the fishing trip?

Nancy R.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Vacuum packing and freezing is .95 per pound. There isn't a rental car company in the area so you would have to rent the car in Anchorage and keep it the entire time. You really need to have a car in the area to get to and from your lodging to the boat staging area. It will also come in handy for sightseeing in the area. Once you have booked the trip we can work with you to receive a discount on the car rental. Linda (907) 394-1616

Q:

I took a look at your website and you offer several different types and durations on you fishing trips. Some are 6 hr halibut only and another is a 9 hour salmon halibut combo trip. Which one are you offering in the groupon deal? If the 9 hr combo package is not included can this package be upgraded? If it is a salmon only trip is it done from a six-pack boat in Cooks inlet or in a freshwater river? Is there any difference in the groupon package deal and the one offered on your website as the red hot deals for the same price?

James K.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Hi James. The halibut only trips ae 6-7 hours in length. We fish the tide cycles in our area which means you fish until the tide won't let you fish anymore. These are the trips that are included in the Groupon feature. We also offer a halibut/salmon combination trip in May and early June. These trips are 9-10 hours. You troll for Kings for approximately 2-3 hours and then fish for halibut for the remainder of the trip (sometimes you fish for halibut first and then troll for halibut depending on the time of the tides). If you would like to upgrade to the combination trip it is an additional $30 per person/per trip. This fee would be paid directly to Discover Alaskan Adventures. We also offer guided river salmon trips which would also be an additional $30 per day/per person and again would be paid directly to Discover Alaskan Adventures. You may mix and match trips depending on the type of tishing you would like to do. As an example if you purchase the 4 nights lodging/3 day fishing package you could fish 2 days for halibut and 1 day of river salmon fishing. Linda (907) 394-1616

Q:

What is the nearest airport to fly to? If we buy the 7-day trip, could we mix and match the types of fishing trips that we would be interested in when we get there? What is the best month for King/Halibut combination trip?

Alma M.  asked on  Nov 28, 2012

A:

We recommend that you fly into Anchorage and rent a car. We offer the halibut/salmon combo trips from May 1 thru early June.

More Questions and Answers

Q:

I purchased the 3 day fishing groupon but we plan on staying in the area for a bit longer (perhaps stay for a week). Do you have any recommendations for other things to do/places to go/stay without driving to far away (maybe 3-4 hours or so drive) from the Anchorage Area.

I will email you some information.

Q:

Halibut are huge. If I only want to take home 40 of the 200 lbs I catch, am I obligated to pay for packaging and keeping all of the fish or do you find a way to distribute what we do not want to keep? - Thank you.

Mary F.  asked on  Dec 7, 2012

A:

If you catch more fish than you want to take home we have a senior center and an American Legion that you may donate fish to and they will distribute it to seniors and veterans in our area. You may specify which you would like it to go to.

Q:

If I purchase this deal can I accompany my husband on the actual fishing?i don't fish but like to watch

David w.  asked on  Dec 1, 2012

A:

I'm sorry we did not respond to this question sooner. It some how was missed. You may accompany your husband on the trip but we still have to count you as a client so you might as well fish and get your limit. You just have to 'hook' the fish and then anyone can bring the fish in for you.

Q:

I suffer from sea-sickness in open waters, seems that anything over a six foot role brings this on, what's the fishing waters like???

Wayne A.  asked on  Dec 2, 2012

A:

First let me apologize for not responding sooner. Somehow we missed several questions. We generally don't experience a 6-foot roll, but it does happen. Our water is more of a chop than a roll. Each day we look at the water before we launch and determine if we feel the conditions are safe and the clients will have fun. We are very honest about the conditions and how we feel the water will be. Occasionally we do launch in perfectly acceptable waters and the weather kicks up, but unfortunately we can't control mother nature.

Q:

What if you catch the limit in the first day or two of a three day trip? Can a refund be provided or can we still fish?

Mary F.  asked on  Dec 4, 2012

A:

You can catch a limit each day you fish. So if you are fishing 3 days for halibut you can take 6 fish.

Q:

In a previously asked question "what is the bag limit"? the answer given was two Halibut per trip. Please clarify what is meant by a trip. If you fish for three days can you take only two Halibut home to the lower 48 or can you take six Halibut home to the lower 48? How many Kings and or silvers can you take home to the lower 48 on a 3 day fishing trip?

Ken P.  asked on  Dec 4, 2012

A:

If you fish for halibut for 3 days you may keep 6 fish. Limits for Kings and Silvers very depending on the River we are fishing. Kings are 1 or 2 and Silvers very from 3 to 6.

Q:

Your schedule shows a 1st and 2nd trip each day. Am I correct that each guest picks only one trip per day ? What is the cost of an Alaska fishing license and can you give me a ballpark figure for the cost of getting your catch home. Ron

Ronald B.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

A:

We do fish 2 trips a day. We generally pick the trip because we try to pick the best tide for that day based on availability. Having said that, if a guest wants a different time than what we have picked we are more than willing to accomodate the request. We recommend that you take the fish home with you on the plane as luggage. Even if you have to pay an excess luggage fee it is still less expensive than shipping via FEDEX or UPS which will run somehere in the neighborhood of $5 to $6 per pound.

Q:

How rough is the water. Do you go out into the ocean or is this a relatively calm inlet?

renee w.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

A:

We fish in open water so it can be rough. If we feel it is to rough we do not go out. We will reschedule the charter or issue a refund for that charter if we aren't able to go out.
