As is common with most remote locations in the world, cell phone coverage is great, when you have service. You will have scattered cell service in Pelican with better service while out fishing.

The evening prior, you will fill out a lunch card choosing the type of sandwich you would like prepared. Keep it simple with peanut butter and jelly or create a sandwich. There will be a variety of snacks to choose from including granola bars, candy, chips and more!

Tipping Procedure

In Alaska, it is the custom to tip the staff for the services they provide. This can sometimes become a confusing proposition, so we would like to suggest the following general guidelines. We recommend tipping at least 10% of your per person rate. Cash is the preferred method of payment for your gratuity.

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES​

We do not have a liquor license but you are welcome to purchase liquor in Juneau. While fishing with The Wild Alaskan Lodge your safety is our greatest concern. Alcohol and/or drugs impair your mental capacity and are strictly prohibited on our fishing boats, our dock or on the catamaran.
