Discover Alaskan Adventures sails out of Ninilchik, Alaska and is easy to locate as it is just off the Sterling Highway. Ninilchik provides a shorter access to Cook Inlet than does Homer. It is a short boat ride to the Halibut and Salmon and the inlet for the Kenai River is in the general vicinity. This means that as various species of Salmon stage to enter the river, they do so in the waters around Ninilchik.

Fishing with Discover Alaskan Adventures

Discover Alaskan Adventures offers their guests a variety of fishing options. You can opt to fish the salty brine for big Halibut and Salmon or you can venture into the freshwater world of both the Kenai River and the Kasilof River. Both rivers offer world-class fishing as do the salty waters of Cook Inlet.

The deal with Alaska and fishing is timing. The fish have a schedule to keep and they stick to that schedule. If it is early June and you want to target King Salmon, then you have a choice between either river or inlet. If it is early June and you want to target Silver Salmon, you only have the option of Cook Inlet. That is also the beauty of Discover Alaskan Adventures as they can put you on the fish - wherever the fish are - freshwater or saltwater.

You can also opt to do a fly-out fishing adventure that improves your odds of targeting specific species of fish at a different time. Some rivers see the Silver Salmon earlier than do others. In short, you have a lot of options when you choose Discover Alaskan Adventures as your charter. You also reduce the pressure of being on the water at specific times of the season because they offer you more options to fish in more locations.

They have a limited number of lodging options including a cabin on Lake Illiamna or in the Redoubt area. They can also help you with RV parks accommodations.
