Saltery Lodge normally books the lodge to an entire group at one time, which means a minimum occupancy of six. If you have a smaller group, you might be interested in our mixed bookings. If you're on the fence about whether to come, please read our Top 10 Reasons to Visit Saltery Lodge.


Saltery Lodge, with all it's accompaniments, specializes in exclusive reservations for small groups of six to eight guests. You are getting an entire luxury lodge, great boats, private chef, and hosts at your complete and undivided disposal. Compared to others, this is a very unique and exclusive package. Both Corporate and/or Family groups will find intimate, private, 5 Star service, fully guided, and fully pampered throughout your stay.

PACKAGE OPTIONS: 6 Nights and 5 Full days of Fishing $5970.00 Per Person. 5 Nights and 4 Full days of Fishing $4975.00 Per Person. Our typical schedule has guests arrive on Sunday and depart on either Friday or Saturday.

LOW SEASON RATES (40% off above prices!): Saltery Lodge is available with all its amenities (Except guided fishing) to those who just want to get away for a vacation in rustic elegance in a breathtaking setting.

What to Bring

  • Yourself and a sense of adventure.
  • Comfortable clothing.  Summer daytime temperatures average in the mid 60's. Layers of clothing will help you regulate your own temperature. Waterproof jackets are preferred. Full rain gear is provided.
  • Rain boots, hiking boots.


Ketchikan International Airport (KTN) is about a 90 minute flight from Seattle (SEA). Alaska Airlines is the only carrier that serves the area and has several flights a day available. We can help you figure out the system of getting to Ketchikan and back. We will pick you up at the airport on your arrival date and drop you off on your departure date.

We do not recommend that you arrive on flight 69 which arrives in Ketchikan at 8:11pm. By that time, during certain times of the year, it is dark and makes transportation to the lodge difficult. You may need to stay in Ketchikan that night at your expense and then arrive at the lodge the next morning.

We also do not recommend leaving on the 7:53am flight 60 out of Ketchikan, if possible. Sometimes morning fog can interfere with travel, and your fish caught on the last day may not be completely frozen. In that case you would need to pay extra to FedEx your fish to yourself.


We want to make sure there are no misunderstandings with your stay, so here are our disclosures...

  • Prices are subject to change, but will not change any confirmed bookings.
  • Weather in the summer is relatively mild, but can on rare occasions, be too stormy for excursions. Safety comes first, and we may choose to cancel any daily excursion due to weather. We will not be responsible for delays or loss due to weather or other acts of God.
  • Southeast Alaska gets a fair amount of rain during the year, which is what makes the fishing good and the scenery unbelievable. Average Max temperatures tend to be in the 60s, and occasionally get into the mid 70's. Layered clothing is best as it can go from rain to sunshine in minutes (and vice versa)
  • While we take your safety extremely seriously, these types of trips are not without risk. A waiver of liability will be required to be signed by all parties before arrival. Saltery Lodge will not be held responsible for any loss or injury.
  • A 25% Deposit is required within 10 days to confirm booking. The remaining amount is required within 60 days of your reservation. The deposit and the final payment are non-refundable, although if we can rebook your slot, we will refund your money. Trip insurance is recommended to cover any loss of payment due to unexpected circumstances.
  • For our Platinum Package and Diamond Package, the two primary fishing vessels we use are Linnaea and Jasmine. Unforeseen circumstances such as breakdowns may cause us to substitute another vessel, at our cost. See more details on our boat policy.
  • High speed internet and telephone service will be available.
  • Inside the lodge and vessels are non-smoking. We do not tolerate drug use from our staff or guests.
  • If you are allergic to any food items, please let us know in advance of your arrival.
  • Travel agents please contact us for additional information and commission rates.
  • For safety reasons, no intoxication will be allowed on any of our vessels or excursions.
  • We have more information on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
