Travel and Covid Information REGARDING THE 2021 SEASON

COVID-19 CIRCUMSTANCES ARE UNPREDICTABLE

We are working diligently to adapt as we move forward through this season. Unfortunately, there is no telling when things will return “back to normal” in any sense, but rest assured we will be fishing from May 15th thru mid-September 2021. Moving forward, we would like our clients to be aware that we have implemented a few safety operating procedures and protocols for the 2021 season. We will continue to do our best to make your Sitka fishing and lodging experience as enjoyable and memorable as possible.

Mandates and regulations can change daily due to the Covid situation being fluid. We cannot predict what will be required at the time of your travel. The best thing to do is check the Alaska travel portal for updates prior to your trip. 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO WHILE TRAVELING

Travelers should take appropriate protective measures while traveling, such as wearing cloth face coverings, practicing social distancing, and washing their hands frequently. Detailed guidance and advisories on how to minimize the risk of spread, as well as the comprehensive and detailed mandates, alerts, and updates issued by the State of Alaska may be found online at: https://covid19.alaska.gov/.

ALASKA COVID-19 TRAVEL PROTOCOL AND TESTING REQUIREMENTS

Travelers entering the state of Alaska are required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result, whether they are a resident, worker, or visitor; with or without a vaccine at this time. There are several different testing options and/or scenarios a traveler can choose from in order to forgo the mandatory 14-day quarantine and these options have been detailed online at the Alaska Travel Portal.

When you go to the Alaska travel portal, you must submit a travel plan and your Covid test results prior to flying and arriving in Alaska. Here is your Alaska travel portal link: https://covid19.alaska.gov/travelers/

WHAT WE DO TO PROVIDE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Our staff and clients will be encouraged to be mindful of their personal hygiene routines and may be asked to practice social distancing, wear cloth face coverings inside the vessel cabins, lodge lounge and dining areas (unless eating), wash their hands more frequently, etc.

Hand sanitizer has been placed at all high use areas throughout the lodge and on all vessels for your convenience

Food serving is done by the staff behind plexiglass, instead of self-serve as it has been in the past

Vehicles are sanitized after each use; vessels are fully sanitized at the end of each fishing day.

ADVICE ON FLIGHT CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19

We highly recommend that our clients keep a very close eye on their airline reservations and travel arrangements, as most airline companies have experienced a shift in operations due to the diverse effects and unanticipated impacts of COVID-19.
