Located on the west side of Baranof Island in Southeast Alaska, Sitka is only three hours away from Seattle by jet on Alaska Airlines.
The place to go for the best, world class fishing for King Salmon, Silver Salmon, and Halibut is Sitka, Alaska, due to its unique location jutting out into the Pacific Ocean. Of all the king salmon and halibut sport caught in southeast Alaska, 40% of them are landed near the outer coast of Sitka. Sitka is also the hot bed for "barn-door" halibut, lingcod and various rockfish.
Sitka has something special to share with each adventurer who visits its shores! Besides our legendary Genuine Alaskan Hospitality, and Alaskan fishing, it also has amazing history, abundant wildlife, and gorgeous scenery. You can expect to see animals such as brown bears, sea lions, seals, sea otters, Sitka black-tailed deer, tufted puffins and bald eagles—to name a few!
