Motion Sickness?

We recommend medication to avoid motion sickness, if you are not sure if you will get seasick or not. Patches work great. Ask your doctor.

What to do with my fish?
Filleting is included with your trip. We offer optional vacuum packing for $1.20 per pound of fillets. Another option is to have your fish processed in either Ninilchik, Homer, or Soldotna where they process and ship your fish for you or you can pick it up at the end of your trip from them. You may either take your fish home as luggage or ship it home. We recommend that the fish be shipped in insulated boxes that most processors have available.
