Guided & Self Guided Boats

Custom Built Boats — Better equipped with electronics and tackle than the average bare boat rental!

Ketchikan Alaska Boat Rentals
Chinook Shores Lodge has ten boats — One 30′ Admiral Defiance for guided charters, eight 23′ Silver Streak hard top boats for self-guided fishermen or unguided anglers and one 21′ North River soft top for 2-person groups.

Self-Guided, Unguided Fishing Boats

We shopped around to find the perfect self guided boat for fishing in Southeast Alaska and we found them. Our custom built 23′ Silver Streaks Boats are ideal for unguided fishing in Alaska. The variable pitched welded aluminum hull 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. Silvers Streak Boats will safely handle much heavier seas than the average bare boat rental or skiff rental.

Because we specialize in unguided Alaska fishing trips and bareboat fishing rentals, we have everything the Do-It-Yourselfer needs for fishing in Ketchikan. We understand what you need and our boats, facilities and helpful staff show it.
