If you have booked directly through us, we prefer that you purchase your Alaskan fishing license ahead of time. You can buy one directly from the State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game, at the website listed below.


For your tour, you will need a “1 Day Sport Fish License” for the date you are fishing. You may also purchase a King Salmon Stamp which will allow you to keep the legal number of King Salmon that you might catch while fishing. You may not keep any King Salmon unless you have bought this stamp. No other salmon species require a special stamp.

You will also be asked about your residency status. Residents of the state of Alaska are those that have lived in the state for the last 12 consecutive months.

Guests aged 15 and under do not need a license or a King Stamp.

We have the ability to buy fishing licenses once you arrive in Alaska, but it is far more efficient if you have done so before you arrive.
