The Queens

There’s a good chance you will talk to one of these fantastic women when you call.  They know our operation inside and out, and will be happy to help you.  Not quite sure how we could manage without them!


     Our little town of Ninilchik, Alaska is centrally located between Soldotna and Homer on the Sterling Hwy. Ninilchik is home to some of the finest halibut and salmon fishing in the world. The Ninilchik River borders us on the north side and Deep Creek borders our little fishing village on the south side.

     You’ll be delighted at how easy it is to get here. Ninilchik is approximately 180 miles south of Anchorage and can be reached with a 3 1/2 hour beautiful drive through majestic scenery. Anchorage has a large international airport with convenient air service from nearly all major cities. Most of our clients from out of state fly into Anchorage, rent a car or RV and drive to Ninilchik.
