Fishermen's Inn is located in Port Alexander a remote wilderness town that is without roads. Port Alexander sits 65 miles to the south of Sitka, Alaska on the small island of Bananof. This is an awesome spot to visit and for fishing. Your hosts are Kevin and Karen Mulligan and trust me, you are in good hands here. This is a small Inn in a wonderful setting. The main features a master bed, loft twin and a third bedroom with a semi-private bath and two twin beds. There is one cabin that is also available that is both comfortable and cozy. The beautiful thing about Fishermen's Inn is the quality of the stay they provide. It is small. It is beautiful. It is family style. However, given all that, it is the people here that make this place feel like home. You can find larger lodges, but you will never top the service that the Mulligan's provide.

Fishermen's Inn and Families

Here at Fishermen's Inn you are family whether you bring your family or all of your fishing buddies. This is a place that kids will enjoy too. There is just a lot to keep people busy. A good example would be a flight seeing trip where you can watch the bears or the whales. Because the area is so remotely located, and there are no roads the wildlife viewing opportunities are rich. You can walk down to the water and practice fly fishing or take one of the kayaks and explore the local waterways as you view shipwrecks and eagles. This is Alaska and one of the things that everyone enjoys are the massive sunsets that display across the Southeastern Alaska sky. Bring the kids. It is an amazing place for families.

Fisherman's Inn is small and cozy. It is not luxurious, and it is not basic. It is the perfect level of quality and comfort that makes the place feel like home. The Mulligan's have created a small paradise for those who love nature and the fishing.

What To Do At Fishermen's Inn

The basic answer is to fish, but there is a whole lot more here. First, this is an inn that specializes in both saltwater fishing and freshwater fishing. Saltwater charters take you to hidden fishing spots where you can fish for Steelhead Trout, King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Pink Salmon and Halibut. The local waters are rich in Lingcod and Snapper too. Freshwater fishing here is amazing. Kevin is a commercial grade bush pilot with decades of flying experience and over 35 years of fishing experience. The local freshwater creeks and rivers are amazing habitats where Salmon, Dolly Varden and Steelhead Trout are perfectly at home. The Salmon season here begins in May as the ocean salmon species begin to flock together and prepare for their runs upstream. It starts with the King, followed by the Silver and Sockeye and Pink Salmon. The Kings are massive. The Silvers are fighters. The Sockeye are the best to eat and the Pinks only spawn every other year.
