Expectations were high when I signed up for Island Point. Bottom line is they have the worst equipment I have ever seen and am surprised they haven't been sued or shutdown for safety violations. Boats were very poor, no fire extinguisher, props were all chewed up, the life jackets probably wouldn't float although I didn't try one. The lodge is old, sleeping quarters in the lodge were ridiculously poor with no where to store your clothes or equipment. Food was adequate to good although you would expect something more than tacos and burgers for the price paid. Don't believe what they write in their orientation package, its an exaggeration at best or applies to a previous owner perhaps. The fishing rods and reels were very poor and appear to not be maintained at all. They charge you for most everything other fishing lodges provide as part of the package. I wouldn't go back if they provided everything free including airfare! You would do just as well renting a room and boat in Petersburg and going on your own. This is clearly an operation for maximum profit with minimum to no investment! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! (Watch for more reviews-most all of the 33 people there felt the same way!)

Ask for a deposit back due to COVID-What do you think?? Island point lodge, Petersburg Alaska We booked a trip to Alaska for a fishing trip. We called to cancel our trip on March 30,2020 due to the Covid19. So I called and emailed the owner numerous of times to get our deposit back. He told us we couldn’t get our deposit back. We can book it for next year. I told him we don’t know what’s gonna happen next year we have been closed due to the Coronavirus. That we are at a stay at home order.,He told me that in order to get our deposit back we should’ve canceled by March 15 2020. I told him this was not normal circumstances. We fill out our information paper work for our deposit. No where on that paper work said anything about a cancellation date. We found the cancellation date timeline in a booklet he sent us. So basically he told me that good luck on getting our deposit back. Going to the bank and filling out paper work. What else can be done to get our deposit back? Oh my husband is a high risk. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Franks crew is so helpful starting with pick up from the airport, to town for gear and supplies before they bring you by boat ride to the lodge. Once at the lodge, the same screw fuels your boat, takes up your catch, fillets the fish for you and will offer tips and advice on fishing in Alaska. The lodge feels like a family cabin on the edge of the Alaskan wilderness. Fishing for halibut and salmon is sometimes work and waiting on the tides, but always fun, and most often rewarding. It is so nice after a long day on the water to have home cooked meals and a dessert every night. We were thrilled to sleep on a new mattress in cabin 4. We were married in 2018 by Frank on the front deck of the lodge and we were so glad to return for our anniversary.

The people working at this lodge were friendly and helpful. The cook, dock hands, etc., all did their best to help. It goes down from there. Too many add on tasks, including telling a person how much to tip. The food was good to very good, but not always great as I have had at other venues. The room was too small for a crew of six and the room itself lacked many amenities like chairs (no room inside anyway). The lodge was uninspiring itself, although the peanut bowl was always full. The boats needed upgrading such as racks for fishing poles, net, harpoon, etc. to give a fishing team a little room. This was not a bad experience, the fishing was fun, but the lack of charm was obvious. My recommendation is spend the money to upgrade and raise your prices accordingly.

Our group of four was the only one that was new. The rest of the people had come at least five times. There was a bit of a learning curve for the first day and a half, but we figured it out. I limited on halibut, including a tasty 73lb fish. The salmon weren't running yet, just starting, but we did manage to get some. The lodge staff treats you like family, there were several nice surprises, including dungenous and snow crab steamed and served fresh on the veranda at least three afternoons. This is self guided, but with some effort and help from the staff, we had a great time. Food was abundant and quite good, we we're all very satisfied!
