El Capitan Lodge packages offer a memorable Alaskan fishing trip that will exceed your wildest expectations. There are two elements of our El Capitan Lodge Packages that we cannot control – Alaska’s weather and the fishing. The elements we do control – food service, room service, condition of our buildings and equipment, helpfulness of the crew, guest entertainment, fish processing, optional activities during your trip – we strive to make the best they can be.

ARRIVALS KETCHIKAN AIRPORT
Ketchikan International Airport is located on an island 1/4 mile outside Ketchikan with continual ferry service between the island and Ketchikan.
Upon arrival in Ketchikan, proceed to the lower level of the airport, claim your baggage and check in at the Island Air Express ticket counter.
Once at the Island Air counter their agents will weigh your baggage for the next morning’s Seaplane departure and then transport you in a shuttle van on the short five minute ferry crossing to The Landing Hotel.
ACCOMMODATIONS IN KETCHIKAN: El Capitan Lodge has arranged for the Best Western Landing Hotel to accommodate all of our guests with discounted room rates. Upon arrival from the airport to The Landing Hotel, you will be greeted by their friendly staff and checked into your reserved room.
MORNING DEPARTURE TO LODGE: Accommodations at The Landing Hotel and seaplane transportation to/from the lodge are arranged by El Capitan Lodge prior to guest arrival. Van Shuttle service departs the Landing Hotel between 5:30am and 6:30am.
Upon arrival at the Lodge, a light breakfast will be served as your licenses and rain gear are issued for your first day of fishing. A travel itinerary is sent prior to your arrival.
DEPARTURES FROM LODGE
On departure day, guests can expect to depart the lodge between 6:30 am – 8:00 am.

Upon arrival, guests proceed to the Ketchikan Airport terminal where baggage and fish boxes can be checked in at the Alaska Airlines ticket counter.
