“Great Alaskan Experience”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We just returned from a week at Chinook Shores. What a beautiful place and great people to stay with! We were up close and personal with eagles, whales and maybe more importantly..Salmon and Halibut. My husband has stayed here a few times with his fishing buddies and told me it was great, but I wanted to see it for myself! My first trip fishing in Alaska and I was impressed! (I also caught a 75 lb. Halibut...WOW!)

My wife and I have been going to Ketchikan for fishing for 15 years staying at various lodges, until we found Chinook shores, now we don't have to go anywhere else. We found our Alaska home. Jeff, sister Heidi, and brother in law Allan feel like family to us. Fishing is incredible, and if you need help the staff is more than willing to help you out. This fishing experience is truly one stop shopping. John and Janet

This was our second trip to Chinook Shores. Wonderful accomodations, comfortable beds, full kitchen. The individual Chalets are new and solid construction. My Dad was a builder and he would have approved of the quality construction. Especially enjoyed Bar-B-Qing on the deck when watching a beautiful Ketchikan sunset. This is a family operation and very smoothly run. We were able to meet the whole family and the Dogs too. We had one Charter day with Jeff, the owner. What a guy! Great personality and wonderful sense of humor. Their 20ft self quided boats are fully outfitted, even a "Potty Bucket" for the ladies. Thank you!! Fishing was great and Jeff always had some good fishing tips. We never came back to the dock "skunked". The scenery was the best, remember your camera for sure. We will be back soon

Jeff and his wife are really good hosts who make you feel as if you've known them for a long time. The lodges are first class with everything you need for a fishing holiday with friends or a quiet relaxing family holiday. The fishing is second to none. The locals we met were friendly and justly proud of their island and will help you in any way. The next time I go (2011) will be my fourth year running. The scenery is stunning and reminds me of Scotland - except bigger. I always feel rested after my time there and would advise anyone to give it a try to see for themselves.

This is a magical spot in Ketchikan, Alaska. Beautiful chalets on the water, great fishing, we were able to process our fish on site and the owners could not be more generous and the customer service was excellent.

If you are looking for a great fishing vacation, I would highly recommend Chinook Shores. We have been there the last two years and we are going back in June, 2010. First lets start with the owner Jeff. Jeff goes out of his way to make sure your vacation is first class. He is always there to help you find new fishing spots and help you with tackle. The Chalets (which Jeff Built) are fully stocked with everything you need for up to 6 people and are located on the water with great views. The boats are first class with tops to protect you from the rain (yes it rains in Ketchikan) and the fishing is great. Chinook shores is only 20 minutes from town. Our group has been to many fishing lodges in Alaska and BC and I would have to rate Chinook Shores as number one.

Chinook Shores is an absolutely amazing location. The owners are great hosts and put great care and thought into the chalets and ammenities. They put great touches on every aspect of the chalets, which are new and absolutely beautiful with handcrafted wood floors, etc. They even have freezers to store your catch and a commercial vacuum packer to seal and preserve your catch. The boats that they have for unguided fishing are unbelievable, loaded with everything...GPS, fishfinder, down riggers, etc.

The view from the chalets is unreal. Right on the water, the only sounds you hear are eagles and some of the fishing boats as they go out to test their luck. The views are breathtaking and relaxing.

I can't say enough about Chinook Shores. Whether you like to fish or just like to relax, this is the place. The price is unbelievable as well. It is so incredibly reasonable, you can't go wrong. We would recommend this place (and have already) to anyone. Once you've been to Chinook Shores, you will go back again and again.

Also a few miles away is Totem Bight Park. Very nice little park with totems and great wildflowers.
