Royal Coachman Lodge Policy
We practice a strict catch and release policy for our freshwater species of fish. You may however ship home five salmon from your trip (if available) and we will prepare, package, and freeze your catch for the trip home. The remark we hear most often from our guests is this is our trip of a lifetime. We understand this sentiment, and our staff is dedicated to adding all the small personal touches that help make your stay with us truly that trip of your lifetime. Whether its a few extra hours fishing in the evening, or a few miles out of the way to show you a herd of caribou, or having the chef prepare your catch of the day just the way you like it, we are here to make every effort and provide every service that will make your fishing adventure memorable. Once you experience the Royal Coachman Lodge you’ll want to return year after year, and become part of our Alaskan fishing family. In fact, a very large number of our guests have been returning for many years, and are content in the knowledge that they have found a very special place to fish, relax, and enjoy the last great frontier! We also have many non-fishing activities available at the lodge. The wildlife viewing is spectacular (we offer bear viewing trips to the famous brooks falls), and we have sea kayaks available.
People frequently ask us what is customary to tip? Tips range from 5-20% of your trip price. We recommend 10% of the non discounted rate($865 per person), but please feel free to tip more or less in accordance with the quality of service you have received. We believe we have the finest, well seasoned and experienced staff in the business. Our staff works together as a service oriented team, from housekeeping to pilot, to ensure that all our guests have a great Alaskan experience. Each member of the team plays a vital role. Therefore, we pool the tips each week, and divide them evenly amongst the staff.
How do you get to the Lodge?
Our weeks are from Sunday to Sunday. You need to plan for a Sunday afternoon arrival in Dillingham, Alaska, where we will pick you up in one of our vans and transport you to our floatplane base for the trip into the Lodge. We have reserved seats for our clients to assure a good rate and seat availability on the Dillingham flight. Please talk with a Royal Coachman Lodge representative or your booking agent before making your final plans. It is worth considering an overnight in Anchorage, Alaska on your way to the Lodge. Delta, Northwest, United, Alaska Airlines, and others all fly to Anchorage daily from most major U.S. and foreign cities. Pen Air provides jet service to Dillingham on a daily schedule.
