Iditarod Sled Dog Real Alaska Tour
Your "Real Alaska Tour" begins at the Seward Rail Depot, near the small boat harbor. We'll start by touring historic downtown Seward, one of the oldest communities in Alaska, where you'll see firsthand the effects of the 1964 earthquake.

Private Seward To Anchorage Tour & Transfer
Upon boarding at 8:30am, begin your adventure with a stop at Exit Glacier (if road conditions permit). An eight mile drive off the main road reveals a spectacular view and a short easy riverbed walk provides a close-up and personal view of a magnificent glacier. This will give you a “real Alaska” experience! As you leave Seward and tour north, you will have the opportunity to enjoy spectacular scenery through Moose Pass and Turnagain pass. This area is resplendent with hanging alpine glaciers.

Next, visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, opened to the public in 1993. It is located on 140 acres at the southern edge of Turnagain Arm and the entrance to Portage Valley. AWCC provides care and rehabilitation for injured and orphaned wildlife, as well as wildlife education and awareness. Animals that are unable to be released or survive in the wild are given refuge in the center's spacious habitats. Here people can safely get close, observe and photograph some of Alaska's largest land animals, including moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears, musk ox, small mammals, and birds of prey.

For lunch we will enjoy Bore Tide Deli on top of a mountain! After lunch, get ready for the aerial tram ride up the longest double black diamond ski slope in North America. From the top, you can view several glaciers, the northern-most temperate rainforest!

Salmon Fishing With The Best
This fishing charter, unlike many in the area, takes out only 6 people. It is easy to find those boats carrying double digits but that is not what this fisherman wants. You will find top-of-the-line custom, hand-built rods and tournament grade tackle for our guests. Fish are bled as soon as they are caught and immediately placed in slush ice to preserve their fine quality. Filleting, packaging, freezing and shipping of your fish is available from local businesses. For your convenience, hunting licenses, sportsfishing licenses and king salmon stamps are available for purchase onboard.

The boat is a 53' x 17' professional salmon trolling vessel with spacious accommodations for up to six passengers. It utilizes state-of-the-art fish finding and navigational equipment:
American Pioneer sonar & bottom sounders
Nobletec electronic plotting chart system with Northstar GPS
Furuno 7040D 48 mile ranger radar
A wide assortment of VHF, CB, & SSB radios
Furuno weather fax
Our safety gear far exceeds charter industry standards. Upkeep of the Florette C. is continuous and the vessel is exceptionally clean and attractive throughout. We have a full bathroom and laundry facilities. The vessel is well insulated and our guests stay comfortably warm all year round.

Departures:
07:00 AM,



Meeting instructions:
Specific pick up or taxi instructions will appear on your voucher after you purchase your trip.



Special instructions:
- Your fishing license will be $25 per person for everyone over 16 years old. King Salmon stamps are an additional $15.
- Bring your lunch and soft drinks and beer. Hot drinks will be provided.
- It is hard to determine what the weather will be like. We suggest that you dress in layers so you can add or subtract as the weather dictates. Anytime in AK, rain gear is always a good idea. Rubber boots are not usually required.
- Please note: The Federal Government has placed new limits on halibut fishing this year and has limited it to 1 fish per person and no larger than 37 inches, making fish about 22 pounds or less for the largest keeper. If you fish for halibut, we will practice catch and release.
