could not imagine being in a better location with a wonderful staff to take care of fishing, eating, and just being. We love the flight over, the food is wonderful, great bar, they find the fish and help you catch them.

Being a life long Alaskan and a previously a charter captain I appreciate how hard it is to pull off the superior customer service experience. They have done it! Lodge facilities are more than comfortable in a private two room cabins, great dining, comfortable bar to visit in. The fishing boats are up to date, super comfortable with air-ride seats, stable and fast. But the whole experience would be just a building and boats without the heartbeat of the people who operate this experience! What can’t be beat is the personal service. The owners meet every plane as your arrive, visit with you each night after fishing. Which has a very obvious trickle down effect to the staff, who know you by name and provide a rich and enjoying personal service to all guests. I can’t give higher than 5 ratting, or I would.. Simply great Alaskan experience! Thank you El Captain lodge staff!

Great place, caught my first 32 1b king salmon in 2016. Went again in 2017 and had another fantastic year of fishing. Staff is very friendly and accommodating to your needs. Will be going again in 2018. Looking forward to it. I highly recommend El Capitan!

From the time you board Island Air to the time you depart this amazing lodge everything is perfection...well, besides the rain. But they even have to covered with great gear and amazing hot soup. This lodge prides itself in being the best. The location, the facilities, the property, the equipment, the boats, the food and the staff are all world class. This pride starts with the owners who are on site helping make sure everything goes perfect with all the other staff having that same passion of excellence. I fished with 3 guides during my time here and all three had unique styles and personalities but all rooted in the same mantra, getting us on the fish and having fun. I am lucky to have visited this resort and can only hope to make it back to this absolute paradise at some point.

El cap... truly the best that Alaska has to offer. From the accommodations to the staff hands down they bring the service and quality experience that those lucky enough to engage in being part of the el cap family will never forget. I have had the opportunity to enjoy multiple trips with my dad and was able to have one last one in his memory, and again they made it great. The captains are all great and put you on the fish, and if you are willing to grid it out, dam they make sure you limit everyday. Staff at the lodge is extremely friendly and leave you asking for nothing, this is not your typical fishing camp they are the Ritz of fishing camps. Good luck booking a trip but if the opportunity presents itself don't look back, look back at the trip of a lifetime when you get back home from the amazing adventure. Thanks Scott and Nani for allowing our misfit group of 20 to be part of your Alaskan family and definitely looking forward to another great adventure in the future!
