At Bristol Bay Lodge, we are committed to providing you with the very best experience Alaska has to offer, while keeping you safe.
We will do everything in our power to insure that you are never put in harm’s way. If the weather is inclement, we will delay a flight, or a boat trip across the lake. We will also require that you wear a Coast Guard approved PFD while traversing our lakes and rivers. The guide is always the ‘captain in charge’ and his primary interest is your enjoyment and safety. Please listen to his gentle advice.
Much of Alaska’s best fishing water is accessible only by floatplane. Bristol Bay Lodge flies guests to their fishing destination in one of three legendary de Havilland Beavers. These airplanes are comfortable and reliable, having earned the nickname “workhorses of the north.” Each aircraft is in excellent condition and all are thoroughly maintained throughout the season. Bristol Bay Lodge employs three pilots and each has decades of experience flying in Alaska; some have flown for BBL for more than 25 years.
Our guides are licensed with the state of Alaska, and are registered Coast Guard Captains, with an OUPV certificate. They are also certified First Aid and CPR responders.
