Very tough review to write because I have been a huge fan of this company for years. Have been fishing Alaska for almost 20 years. Worst guide experience in all of that time. We were with Tony for the day. We had been with a...More
My wife and I were lucky enough to book a guided, fly-in salmon fishing trip with Alaska West Air last week, and I find it hard to articulate just how extraordinary this company and its people are.

Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed your fly out with us! This is the experience we strive to give clients, and we always enjoy hearing from you!
Had a fun time with Tony. Patient with me learning to cast. Caught our limit and then searched out a bear. Watching the Eagles pick up the fish carcasses was cool. On the return flight back saw spectacular scenery...moose, glaciers and mountains.
