up with the best of the best - professional, licensed fishermen,
wilderness guides, pilots, and boat captains who are natives of Kachemak
Bay or have worked and lived here for many years. Individually each of us
has over 20 years experience in Alaska's bush, together we are a powerful
team of North Country experts catering to your individual needs. You will
benefit greatly from our local insight, our understanding of natural
history, and our contacts with local people. We can reveal to you hidden
wonders in our area which most visitors sadly miss.
At Sadie Cove you set the pace for your Alaska vacation.
The options shown here are exactly that - options for you to pick at your
discretion. You choose what you wish to do and, within certain practical
limits, when you wish to do it. All tours may and,
to ensure your participation, should be booked as far in advance as
possible. Keith and Randi are glad to discuss your plans and expectations in
advance of your stay to custom tailor your vacation. You may wish to focus
on local wildlife, making our kayaking and guided hikes your options. Or
fishing for local species of salmon and halibut may be your style. Perhaps
the adventure of flightseeing and brown bear viewing suits you. Any or all
of these adventures of the mind, body , and spirit are yours for the
choosing. Contact us with your questions and we will help you make informed
