There is an Alaska Airlines jet out of Seattle in the morning, departing about 8:30, then a jet out of Anchorage, departing about 4:30 p.m. These are flights 61 and 66 respectively. There are really no other reasonable ways of getting to and from Yakutat, unless you can fly yourself. From Seattle and Anchorage as your hub, you will most always be able to find a more direct flight to major airports throughout the United States. Travelers need to give consideration to baggage limitations with the airlines these days.

If you can, we suggest you travel as light as possible in order to minimize the cost of getting all your gear and catch home.

Back to top Why Yakutat With a business based in Yakutat, it is reasonable to think you would see me spout about how great it is here. However, it may very well be great in other destinations throughout the state. So, let's give some reasons why we think you should spend your money here as opposed to some other location. First and foremost, it's the isolation of the place. Yakutat is basically land locked. That means there is much less development due to super high costs related to transportation and the logistics thereof. Less development is sort of what we are all looking for in an outdoor experience. Next, Yakutat has some really great fishing, and to go along with, in place is a system that makes getting here possible. Getting to where the fish are is relatively easy once you have landed in Yakutat, and if sport fishing is what you are coming here for, you can spend more time doing it here, easier, than in most other settings. The boat ride out to the mouth of Yakutat Bay, where most of the saltwater fishing takes place, can be as little as 15 minutes, at most one hour. The drive out to the river from the lodges is about 30 minutes. The local river itself, the Situk, is one that can be easily navigated, and has all the major salmon runs going up her throughout the year.
