Alaskan Charter Yacht: Fishing Focus

Now is a great time to pull out the maps and the guide-books to start planning the Summer Holiday.  If you are looking to get off the beaten track and combine learning with adventure, an Alaskan charter just may be the perfect venue to provide that.

M/Y SINGLE STAR offering Fly Fisherman and wildlife enthusiasts an ultimate outdoor adventure trip.   The 58’ trawler SINGLE STAR is available out of Kodiak, Alaska.   The Kodiak Archipelago includes the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge created by then president Theodore Roosevelt.  This area has an abundance of wildlife, sea-life as well as world famous fishing.   This is a large group of islands about 30 miles from the Alaska Peninsula and 158 miles across the Gulf of Alaska from Homer, Alaska.  The archipelago is about 177 miles long and encompasses nearly 5,000 square miles, roughly the size of the state of Connecticut.    

Fly fishing

 For fishermen, the area offers fabulous fishing of both Salmon and Halibut.  The advantage of a fishing-vacation aboard SINGLE STAR is that as fish move from stream to stream depending on water temperatures, the boat moves with them.  Access to the remote rivers and estuaries is easy with the flats boat off of SINGLE STAR.  Captain Lee Robins is a certified FFF instructor so whether you are a novice needing instructions or an old hand at fly fishing, you are sure to have the time of your life.  For fisherman wishing to keep their catches, SINGLE STAR is equipped with a large deep freeze to keep the catch frozen until returning to port and packaging for shipment.

For the wildlife enthusiast, SINGLE STAR offers professionally guided wildlife photography and Eco tours around Kodiak Island and the Katmai Coast. This area is famous for the amazing amount of wildlife, moderate temperatures and stunning scenery. Watch the sea otters, sea lions, seals, fox, rare waterfowl, ducks, humpback whales, killer whales, fin whales, bald eagles, coastal brown bears and fox. The month of May you’ll find the nesting sea birds hatching.  Your professional guide will lead shore side hikes to pristine wilderness sites for up close and spectacular photography opportunities.
