Ninilchik Charters owns and operates 2 vessels: the 50 foot “Sundy”, and the 43 foot “Arctic Endeavor”. We use these 2 vessels to transport our hunters to the remote areas of Kodiak Island. These vessels also serve as our lodging and base camp during the hunt. Your vessel will have a knowledgeable, experienced captain and deck hand on board that will provide transport, lodging, and meals during your hunt.
In Alaska, hunting regulations, there is a significant difference between a big game “transporter” and a big game “guide”. We are big game transporters. We offer transportation and lodging services to hunters looking for a more “do-it-yourself” type of hunt. You as the hunter sets the pace of the hunt. You will also be hunting with your hunting partners and not a guide. You can set your own difficulty level, and only you choose which deer to take.
The black tailed deer on Kodiak Island are well at home in their habitat. The opportunities to harvest a good buck can be numerous. These are cagey, wild, free ranging deer, and hunters must utilize their hunting, glassing, and stalking skills to be successful. Each day of your hunt, you will be skiffed into shore with your hunting partner. You and your hunting partner will be dropped off in good areas that hunter choose equipped with a radio and a strobe light. When you choose to end your hunting day, radio the boat, and we promptly pick up you (and your deer) and return you to the boat for the night.
