Remote Ketchikan Lakes and Cabins by Charter Flight

03 Local Alaskans and visitors love to use the remote cabin system in Southeast Alaska for exciting fly fishing or weekends of romantic serenity. Let SeaWind Aviation make your backwoods adventure accessible, whether you want a week or a long weekend.  The U.S. Forest Service maintains more than 100 comfortable, semi-rustic, remote cabins within easy range of Ketchikan by charter flight. These cabins are situated on lakes, streams or saltwater inlets some of which are in the Misty Fjords wilderness.

Remote Ketchikan Cabins

Daily fees range from $25 to $45 USD, depending on season, demand and cabin features. Most cabins are sturdy Pan-Abodes while others are traditional A-frames. They will all accommodate approximately 4-8 people, depending on the cabin design. Amenities at the cabins include wood or oil-burning stoves (with firewood provided, but not oil), boats, oars and bunks.  You will typically find a boat at a lake cabin and it is recommended that you bring a small outboard motor to explore the lake. A remote Ketchikan cabin adventure begins with choosing a cabin and dates and then checking flight availability

05 Once you book your remote cabin reservation, give us a call at 877-225-1203 to finalize your flights and discuss the load capacity. Together we will figure out how many people and how much gear we can carry on your remote cabin adventure. The Dehavilland Beaver can typically take 2 – 5 people and enough gear for a three to four night stay. The total load is approximately 1100 pounds including people, coolers, fishing gear and a small outboard. In the event your party requires a second aircraft to accommodate the people and gear, we will only charge a partial rate (C-185) for the larger aircraft.
