Salmon Fishing | Alaska
“I’ve gone out with Capt. Nick for 2 years and Ninilchik Charters for 4. Whether it’s the Sundy out of Homer or the 6-Pack out of Ninilchik, I’ve always had a great experience. This year in the office, Leah and Brad were the best team ever! I felt very comfortable with Capt. Nick, his knowledge, experience, and respect for the water and his passengers goes without question. Thanks, Nick and Ninilchik, for treating my visitors and family to another great summer experience. You’re welcome in Eagle River anytime!” – T. Taylor

Alaska Salmon Fishing | Fish Processing
Ninilchik Charters highly recommends vacuum packing your fish to give it a much longer freezer shelf life. This method drastically cuts down on freezer burn and preserves the flavor of your hard earned catch.
We have commercial style vacuum packing equipment. We can take your fish right from the filleting table and have it vacuum packed in a matter of minutes. For your convenience, we have freezer space available and Federal Express service as well to help you get your fish home!
Our processing services are offered to our clients for a minimal fee and are part of our commitment to providing a full service fishing trip.
