Our Self Guided Alaska Fishing Boats Can’t Be Beat!

We shopped around to find the perfect self guided boat for fishing in Southeast Alaska and we found them. Our custom built 21′ Silver Streaks and North River’s rugged 21′ Seahawk are ideal for unguided fishing in Alaska. The Seahawk has a variable pitched welded aluminum hull that starts out steep in the bow and flattens out in the stern. This provides for a smooth ride with lots of stability and it is a very safe boat. These boats will safely handle much heavier seas than the average operator.

Self guided boats  at THIS Alaska Fishing Lodge will accommodate large groups for photo ops at the dock; however, we recommend only fishing with four anglers for your enjoyment and for your safety!

    I have a group of at least 4 and possibly more that would like to fish with you on the 9th of July. We will be on the Westerdam and would like to fish for halibut and/or salmon. What do you have that is available and is there a good and reasonable way to ship the catch back to Texas?
