Ketchikan Helicopters offers a variety of services that include helicopter fishing. They are perfect for people who have a limited amount of time in Ketchikan or a busy schedule. They also make it possible for you to fish where others do not. That means no more vying for the perfect fishing spot on a charter. Instead, you've got the entire river to yourself.

Fishing with Ketchikan Helicopters 

Guests of the fly-out service have access to a variety of Trout, Steelhead, or Seasonal salmon. This is all catch-and-release fishing. The trips take you anywhere within 1/2 hour of flying time from Ketchikan. You spend one hour in the air and three hours fishing. 

The copter carries an inflatable raft and motor so you can enjoy drift fishing. You can also fish for trophy fish along the shore. Because this is a helicopter and not a float plane you have access to many more destinations. There is no runway required to land a helicopter. 

Explore Alaska with Ketchikan Helicopters 

The area around Ketchikan is amazing for fishing and many other activities. You have access to all five species of Pacific Salmon. Ketchikan is known as the Salmon Capital of the world and for good reason. The local rivers and streams make a perfect place for salmon to spawn. 

Much of what drives the ecological capacity of Alaska is the salmon. As such, where you find Salmon you find other species of fish that grow large and fat on all that roe. This makes the rivers and creeks around Ketchikan an amazing place to fish for Rainbow Trout, Steelhead & Salmon.

In addition to fishing, you can also explore the wildness that is Alaska. Go for a guided hike away from the city and in the wilderness. Explore the area by air and take in the grandness of such a beautiful vista. You can flyout to see the wildlife, follow the whales, find the bears, watch the caribou race across the tundra, and so much more!
