Experience true nature with Expedition Kodiak’s once-in-a-lifetime offer. It doesn’t get much more secluded than Old Harbor, on Alaska’s remote Kodiak Island, home to incredible nature and fishing opportunities. You’ll be put up in a luxury lodge, with everything provided, before heading off daily for 8 –10 hours of serious fishing.

Captain Geoff Bechtol grew up fishing with his father and grandfathers. He’s run charters since 2006, and is a USCG-licensed captain. He’s happy to do whatever you like, and will also show you his tried and true techniques to hook your catch. Expedition Kodiak is not like every other Alaskan fishing lodge, and they understand that you aren’t a “cookie cutter” client, either! This is reflected in the trips they offer.

At 6,000 ft², spacious would be an understatement to describe the lodge. Complete with bedrooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen, they have everything you need. All meals will be prepared by the staff, so you can rest up after a productive day’s fishing.

When on the water, you’ll fish from a true fishing vessel. The 30’ Custom Landing Craft aluminum fishing boat comes equipped with all the necessary safety and navigational equipment, along with downriggers, a livewell, and top-of-the-line fishing equipment to get you reeling in the best and biggest.

Alaska is famed for its fishing. You’ll start fishing straight from the lodge, and will travel a maximum 10 miles offshore to target some strong and delicious fish. Capt. Geoff likes to troll, but you can also try jigging the bottoms, or mooching to catch the bite of King and Coho Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, and more.

Expedition Kodiak will provide you a true adventure. You’ll make lifelong memories in Alaska’s remote countryside. Reel in some serious fish, relax in the lodge, and spot nature’s wonder. Birds, bears, whales – everything. The only thing not included in the price is alcohol and a fishing license. Just grab your license and make the most of this offer.

I've always fished. Like so many others, it's just something I grew up doing with my dad and grandfathers. Twenty years ago, I chose to move to Alaska to become a school teacher in a unique and remote setting. During my first summer up here, my grandfather and father met me and we took a very successful charter fishing trip. I've been on the water chasing King Salmon, Halibut, and Lingcod ever since.
