The is by far our most popular package because it includes the best of both worlds.
It all begins Sunday morning when you arrive at Iliamna airport and finishes Saturday when you start your return home. You’ll be met by an Intricate Bay staff member at the airport in Iliamna. We’ll load your gear into our van and take a short drive to our Sea Planes. After the planes are loaded, we’ll skim across the lake and climb into the magnificent Alaskan air for our short flight to Intricate Bay Lodge. If you’ve never flown in a sea plane, this will be as exciting and memorable as any other moment of your stay with us.
When we pull up to the dock at IBL, you’ll be meet by our amazing guides. We’ll grab your gear, get acquainted with some of our very basic rules (don’t feed the bears), and enjoy an amazing welcome lunch together. And since you came to fish, your first afternoon here will be spent on the water.
You’ll enjoy your first 3 nights under the stars, floating through the most amazing wilderness found anywhere in the world, and catching mind-blowing fish. Our guides will take care of everything, including providing gourmet meals while on the river. Your last three nights with us will be spent back at the lodge.
Every morning at the lodge starts with breakfast at 7:00am. You’re in a boat or plane by 8:00am and off to your first location. Lunch will be served around 12:00 on the water. And you’ll return to the lodge by 5:00pm for Happy Hour. Dinner starts at 6:00pm. The rest of the night is yours to enjoy drinks, the hot tub, watch the amazing sunsets and tell the best fish stories of your entire life.
We can customize the start days for this particular trip as well as the length of your stay. However, we need at least 2 in the group and can accommodate as many as 10 anglers.
