  • Fishing - Offshore Deckhand

    Great Alaska Lodge

    One of the really unique positions at Great Alaska.  We fish 2 saltwater locations and the deckhands do both the driving from the lodge to the marina (or Launch point) as well as being the primary person working for the deck when fishing.  You'll work with the Captain to keep a safe environment for our clients. 

    This position requires plenty of hard work experience as it's a physical job that requires the deckhand to be physically strong. It can be done by a man or a woman.  It also provides the incredible opportunity to be offshore in Alaska catching fish and seeing wildlife on a daily basis. 

    The position includes a monthly salary, gratuities and room/board at the main lodge in Sterling.  Days spent working on the deck searching for fish in the incredible marine environment of Kenai Fjords National Park and Cook Inlet.  A Great Alaska deckhand can be described as having great people skills, a true love of fish and fishing, and being a durable consistent worker who anticipates his captain.  Heavy loads, sharp hooks and sharp tongues (just kidding our captains are awesome!) and sometimes inexperienced fishermen are all in a day's work an offshore deckhand.
