I have tried other charter services in Alaska but Rod N Real has the best deal going and has an array of the most awesome guides you could ever hope for. We stayed in one of their Kenai Riverfront cabins. I say riverfront because you are literally 20 seconds away from the bank of the Kenai River. In addition to the amazing chartered Halibut, Salmon, Ling and Rock fishing, they set us up with a float plane fly-out trip that was beyond belief. There were Aerial views of glaciers and wildlife before landing in a remote lake for more amazing fishing.
The chartered trips were awesome but it was even great to relax in the evening along the bank of the Kenai just to take it all in. We'd flick a line out in the water and catch a salmon to take back to the cabin for dinner. If you like fresh fish (and who doesn't) you just can't beat it.
Oh yeah! The cabins... The cabins are appointed with full kitchens, two bedrooms, living room with TV, dining area, full bathroom, decks, and a BBQ grill. However I'm betting you still spend most of your time as I did (either along the Kenai River or out sightseeing). I understand it is not uncommon to see wildlife roam through. As I sat on my deck one evening I could look off into the woods and see a couple of moose dining on the local vegetation.
Thanks to the packages they offer, we even ended up having our fish processed for us (filleted, vacuum sealed, and frozen). When we were ready to head home, out fish was delivered to us in taped and nylon strapped boxes that we were able to take a checked luggage. When I got the fish home, some 12 hours later, it was still ROCK SOLID.
I had such a great time that I could go on and on but check them out for yourself.
