We accept only Visa or MasterCard for credit card payment (No AMEX/Discover). There is a 3% Service Fee for all credit card payments. The preferred payment method is personal or business checks.

***All reservations will be assessed a $1,000 per person cancellation fee. Cancellations made less than 90 days will be assessed an additional cancellation fee equal to 50% of the package price.

Yes Bay Lodge will not be responsible for loss of fishing time, lodging, food, transportation, baggage and fish box losses, flight delays and other incidents resulting from conditions beyond our control.***


Suggested gratuities have remained stable with the industry standard at about 15% of the package price, with a slight lean toward your guide, as you spend the most amount of time with them. House Staff gratuities are pooled and divvied up to the penny for all non-guide crewmembers (housekeeper, dockhands, kitchen, etc). Suggested gratuity is as follows:

House Staff Pool: $100 per Guest per Day

Guide: $125 per Guest per Day

As for payment method, you have options! Most commonly, guests leave a cash gratuity directly to their guide, but you can certainly include both guide and house staff gratuities in your final check-out.

Bring comfortable clothing for temperatures ranging from 50° to 75°F. Use of rain gear and rubber boots are included in our package price. Personal items to consider bringing include the following: reusable water bottle/thermos, camera and film, sunglasses, any tobacco products, small day bag for on the boat.


Each day, when you return from fishing, we process, vacuum-pack, and flash-freeze your fish before packing tightly into airline-approved, wet-lock fish boxes labeled with your name and address for you to take home as checked luggage. You can also arrange at the lodge to have your fish shipped home through a third party, using FedEx overnight delivery.

Yes Bay Lodge is NOT responsible for fish boxes upon departure from our dock.

This includes a loss of fish boxes caused by third party mishandling, flight delays, or incidents resulting from inclement weather or any other conditions beyond our control.

While at the lodge, your fish boxes are stored in our freezer at -6°F until your departure. This process typically allows for about a 12-hour travel time in moderate temperatures. Some partial thawing can be expected, but if returned to a freezer immediately upon arrival home, this is generally not a problem.

When summer temperatures exceed 80°F, airport ramps can sometimes reach up to 140°F or higher! If you are traveling to a particularly warm climate, or if your itinerary is 12+ hours, we highly recommend guests research satisfactory transport solutions appropriate to their travel needs.

PLEASE NOTE: Dry ice is not a viable solution due to Alaska shipping regulations, nor is adding ice packs to fish boxes (fish frozen at -6°F serves as its own ice pack).
