When’s the last time you took a family vacation to a place as wild as Alaska? Everywhere you turn there’s a new adventure waiting for you on the Kenai Peninsula. You can spend the morning fishing the Kasilof river in one of our Willie drift boats, the afternoon in a power boat catching Kings on the Kenai, and the evening hiking into the Russian River falls to watch bears catch their dinner in the rapids. And that’s just day one. What are you waiting for?
Head west to the Russian River falls for the opportunity to hike among brown bears. You could see bears catching their breakfast or meandering along in the sunshine with their cubs. If you are feeling more adventurous, book a fly-out trip directly from Soldotna across Cook Inlet to Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. The park is world renowned for it’s bear watching, so you’re sure to make some breathtaking memories.
If your goal is to experience all that Alaska fishing has to offer, a fly-out fishing and sightseeing trip is a must. Get away from civilization and fly over areas of stunning beauty to access remote fishing destinations. You’ll fly over wildlife, glaciers, past active volcanoes, and into peaceful areas of untouched landscapes. These streams have abundant salmon and trout to add to your Kenai river catches.
The Kenai peninsula is known for countless glaciers. Stop on your way to Kenai at Portage Glacier or take a day trip to Seward to experience many glaciers. From Seward you can take a boat tour of the glaciers along Kenai Fjords National Park. If you are craving more adventure, you can even book a helicopter tour and hike into Exit Glacier.
Raised If you are visiting Kenai for fishing, your trip isn’t complete until you book a Homer fishing charter for Halibut in the Cook Inlet. Experience ocean fishing at its finest while also taking in the views of Alaska. Look to the west and see two magnificent active volcanoes, Mt. Iliamna and Mt. Saint Augustine. These trips always start out fun as well with a tractor launch right from the beach!
