Travel to Alaska

Steamboat Bay Fishing Club makes it easy for guests to experience luxury Alaska sport fishing. The Club crew is available year-round to facilitate travel to Alaska and all associated arrangements.

Steamboat Bay is located on Noyes Island, near Ketchikan, a 90-minute flight from Seattle on Alaska Airlines or by private jet charter. A charming port town known as the “Salmon Capital of the World, Ketchikan offers picturesque streets, shops, museums, and historic buildings, as well as hotels and dining options highlighting Alaska culture.

Ketchikan to Noyes Island

Our ground crew at Ketchikan International Airport is on hand to assist with luggage and hotel transfers. From Ketchikan, guests board chartered floatplanes and enjoy a short flightseeing tour over Alaska’s famed Inside Passage and the majestic Tongass National Forest, landing at the Club’s private dock.

Packing Tips

Dress is casual at Steamboat Bay Fishing Club. When considering what to pack, guests should keep in mind that weather in Southeast Alaska can change quickly. The Club recommends dressing in layers, ranging from knit shirts and down vests to light jackets and heavy sweaters. Steamboat Bay provides guests with all-weather gear (high-performance bib overalls and hooded jackets, and waterproof XtraTuf neoprene boots) to keep warm and dry in all conditions.

Packing light is recommended because, on return flights, guest luggage will include wet-lock fish boxes full of flash-frozen catch prepared by the Club’s professional seafood-processing crew. We recommend including the following items:

  • Shirts and T-shirts suited to layering
  • Fleece or down vest
  • Pants (jeans, khakis, or athletic wear)
  • Hooded jacket or sweatshirt
  • Sun hat or ball cap
  • Sunglasses (preferably with polarized lenses)
  • Comfortable walking shoes (no leather soles, as they get slippery)
  • Camera, charger, extra battery
  • Any prescription medications
  • Sea-sickness medication, if needed
  • Sunscreen
  • Optional neck scarf and gloves
