This is the most memorable Alaska trips I’ve ever had. Been sport fishing in Alaska since 1989 at least every other year. With the Covid virus, the lodge was absolutely amazing with their ability to adapt. The food was spectacular! And the fishing… So amazing I can’t imagine not returning soon. A shout out to our captain, fish processors, chefs, help, & this Lodge for making this the best early 50th birthday gift I could’ve ever hoped for. Took my fishing buddy with me, and left my husband and son at home. My fishing buddy, Dan, had never been and I can’t imagine how you could possibly improve on future trips. See you all again soon KingFisher Charters! Jennifer Bolanda Littleton, CO

The food was excellent. COVID test procedure worked out perfectly. They communicated everything effectively leaving no questions unanswered. Dave, captain of Pockets, put us on the fish EVERY time. We slayed em! Kings, silvers, halibut, rock fish - we asked and he delivered even when the weather didn’t cooperate. 5 stars all around!

Three friends and stayed at a fished with Kingfisher Charters Aug. 2020. From the time we were picked up at the airport until we departed everything was 5 star. The staff were friendly, the lodging was modern and clean, the food was unbelievable and fishing with Captain Mike on the Baranoff could not have been better. A 40# king on the boat topped our 3 days of fishing. Thanks to Seth, the owner, for putting together a great experience. Lou O

Recently stayed at the Kingfisher Lodge for a Covid-era fishing trip. The lodge is actually set-up so that social isolation is not a problem. The lodge was running at about half occupancy, which allowed our small group to have an entire floor of one building (Falcon Guest House). The floor has 4 bedrooms, each about 400 sq feet with either two or three beds, and a bathroom in each room. The floor itself was about 2700 sq ft, and includes a kitchen, living room and dining room. There was also a 300 sq foot outdoor deck area for with a table and seating for our unit. In our floor/unit was a washer dryer with all laundry supplies included. To keep social distancing and non-group contact, the dining hall was closed, and all meals are brought to your unit, to be consumed in your dining room. Service is timely and dishes are cleaned up immediately. Quality of the food is EXCELLENT. Quantity of food is also generous, and the few times we requested more of a food item, it was immediately brought to our unit. The full sized refrigerator is stocked with juices, soda, dairy and snacks. Guests are asked to wear a mask if they are outside of their unit, but generally most time can be easily and comfortably spent on your own floor. There is a large screen tv, with included cable, and the wi-fi signal is strong and speeds are fast. Transport to the harbor is in vans, with your own group, so interaction with other guests is kept to a minimum due to covid precautions. The van will stop at the local grocery/liquor store on the way back from the harbor if requested. The fishing is excellent, with a short 30-45 minute ride to the fishing grounds most days. Many different species can be targeted within a reasonable distance. We caught 3 species of salmon, black cod, ling cod, rockfish and halibut. Processing of fish is done on site and is of high quality. Fish boxes are packed and transported to the airport with no hassle. Fishing equipment was top quality - Seeker rods, Talica and Trinidad for bottom fishing, and Tranx reels for rockfishing on our boat. All gear is provided with heavy duty overalls, rain coats and boots provided as well. The service at the Lodge is friendly and helpful. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you have a good comfortable stay, and successful fishing. We've already booked for next year. Highly recommend Kingfisher Charters and Lodge. Special thanks to Seth for taking care of our group.

Had the opportunity to stay and fish at Kingfisher Lodge in Sitka Alaska last July 2019. I had actually won a trip for 2 while fishing in the Western Outdoor Tuna Tournament in Cabo San Lucas. Seth had donated the trip to the angler who guessed the winning weight of the largest Tuna and as luck would have it I won. A good friend of mine and I flew into Sitka and were greeted by the staff and shuttled to the resort. I travel and fish alot and had my own charter service for over 20 years. This place is amazing, excellent accommodations, very attentive staff, marvelous meals and very professional Captains who give 200% to put you on fish. We each took home a 50lb box of various fillets that were marked, packed and frozen in an insulated box for the plane. You need to bring just your clothes, all wet gear and boots are provided. If you get a chance to meet Captain Dan "The Halibut Man" you are in for a treat. The organization at Kingfisher is amazing and will be an adventure that I will always cherish.
