Ultimate sport fishing vacation: Alaska fishing yacht charter

Published 18 juillet 2023

Alaska is one of the best spots for sport fishing and with a Burgess luxury yacht charter your comfort is guaranteed. Discover now with the Burgess guide.

Whether you are a fly fishing aficionado or are drawn to the challenge of deep-sea fishing, the bountiful waters of Alaska offer anglers a marvellous opportunity to vacation in style and comfort on a charter yacht. As a world-class sport-fishing destination, Alaska is home to 3,000 rivers, 3,000,000 lakes and 6,640 miles of coastline to explore by superyacht. With such a variety of waters to explore, you will be spoiled for choice.  

The most popular cruising area for superyachts in Alaska is the Inside Passage, which is found between the mainland and the various islands located to the southeast. That said, ‘popular’ is a relative term as you will likely find yourself enjoying the spectacular scenery all to yourself in this vast region of the largest state in the US. And you needn’t be limited to the coastal areas during your angling adventures, when the vast network of rivers and streams can be accessed by helicopter, perhaps even transferring you directly from on board if you opt for a yacht with a helipad.

Why choose Alaska for a fishing charter? 

While many fishing enthusiasts will have explored the waters of The Bahamas, Florida and the Caribbean on a fishing charter, Alaska is the superyacht destination of choice for more adventurous anglers. The sheer diversity of waters and abundance of species to catch in this stunning setting makes it an absolute must for anyone who enjoys sport fishing. Imagine spectacular mountainous scenery, natural sightseeing spots to explore with all the family and the friendly local community.  

Visit the Denali National Park and challenge yourself to the climb

The best time of year to visit Alaska by charter yacht is between mid-May and mid-September, when temperatures are a little warmer and the days are longer. It is the perfect place to enjoy an adventurous yacht charter, even beyond the many attractions for sport fishers. Cruise near gargantuan calving glaciers; kayak through awe-inspiring Kenai Fjords; hike up to the challenging peak of Denali, Alaska’s highest mountain; or, towards the end of the season, observe the mystical northern lights in the Alaskan Arctic.  

The scope is endless, choose to cast your line on board or from the water

Why charter a yacht for your fishing vacation? 

When it comes to travelling in comfort, there is nothing like the luxury and flexibility of a superyacht charter. And when you combine this with a top fishing location like Alaska, you get a winning combination. Each morning you can sit down with the captain to decide on the day’s fishing activities, and should the conditions change then you can simply move to a more suitable location along the coastline.

Plenty of space on board 

A superyacht charter is like renting a moveable luxury villa for your vacation, with an abundance of space and amenities. Roomy cabins include en suite bathrooms, lounge areas and fold-down terraces from which to enjoy the changing seascape. Spread across multiple decks, guest accommodation and social areas give you space to come together and make memories or enjoy a little time to relax solo. Which means you can bring the whole family on your adventure while also giving them plenty of opportunity to explore the other attractions of Alaska while you set about ticking off your sport fishing bucket list.

Additional opportunities to relax 

Many of today’s superyachts include top-notch lifestyle features such as on board gyms, beach clubs, spas, jacuzzi and swimming pools, cinema rooms, bars and numerous comfortable lounges in which to relax. An attentive interior crew will be on hand to provide you with impeccable service, while the world-class chef will prepare delicious meals to your liking – perhaps even a sashimi feast from your catch of the day. And the deck crew will be poised to help you enjoy the range of tenders and toys on board for a little more action beyond the sport fishing. And with a setting this beautiful in which to gather on the exterior deck for an al fresco dinner, you will be making memories that last a lifetime both in the water while fishing as well as on board your charter yacht each evening.
