We would like to thank Trisha, Jason, Jory, James, Rita, and Amy for making our stay in Alaska one to remember for a long time. Enough cannot be said about the accommodations at Adventure Alaska and the friendly people of Thorne Bay. For many of us this was our first trip to Alaska and truly a learning experience. Your website was very helpful in preparing for the trip. Good rain gear is a must. We were greeted at the pier by Jason even though we were early and things rolled smoothly from there. Everything from room and board to the Lund boats equipped with 4 stroke motors and GPS speaks to your professionalism. We chartered the Alpha & Omega and Jory treated us to some very fine fishing (see pics). I had a huge halibut on and managed to get it close enough to see before it decided it liked the bottom better. The day was complete with a scenic ride home including whales playing in the kelp. I caught the 3 largest fish of my life in the matter of just a few hours. We found everything we needed in the tackle shop equipped with anything from halibut jigs to the tiniest of flies for stream fishing. All of our fish were cleaned, vacuum packed, and frozen for the flight home. I will definitely be seeing you all again next year in hopes of landing the grand slam of Southeast Alaska fishing with a few salmon thrown in for good measure. My recommendations started on the flight home from Ketchikan as I was sorting out pictures and had given your website to several people by the time we made Seattle.
