Baggage charges can be paid when checking in online using Web Check-In, at an airport kiosk, with our iPhone or Android mobile apps, or at the ticket counter. For faster service, use your debit or credit card when checking in.
To ensure your checked bags are loaded onto your flight, we're only able to accept checked bags within four hours* of scheduled flight departure times. Review our Check-In and Boarding Guidelines to determine ticket counter hours, as they may not open until closer to your departure time.

Note: Every effort will be made to accommodate your carry-on in the passenger cabin. Acceptance of carry-on baggage is subject to space availability on the aircraft at the time you board. In the event adequate space is not available, your carry-on bag may be checked for no charge to baggage claim at your final destination.
Items exceeding the free carry-on allowance (see exceptions below) will be charged $25 per piece and tagged for delivery to baggage claim at the customer's destination.
Tim, Octobre, and Crew,
Just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful trip. It was our first to Alaska, and definitely not our last. The efforts you made to make our experience perfect were greatly appreciated. We made it home to Wyoming with all the fish, and it was still frozen solid the next day. Before we left home, I didn't clean out the freezer for fear of jinxing the trip, so when I got home, I had a major job.
We are definitely looking forward to seeing you again, and will highly recommend your total operation.

Alaskan Reel Affair Charters LLC continues to box your seafood as we have in the past. However, it is important that you bring carry-on luggage only.
Your seafood will be your checked baggage on your return flight home.
We stock and use three (3) sizes of "Wet Lock Fish Boxes": 25 lb, 50 lb and 70 lb "Wet Lock" Boxes. (Our competitors typically stock 50 lb. boxes only.)
It is not uncommon for our guests to average 100 pounds* per angler or more, given the amount of days fished in their chosen All Inclusive Package.
You will of course, continue to check your checked baggage through to your final destination as you always have in the past. If Traveling with another carrier higher fees may apply. Checked baggage information may be found at www.alaskaairlines.com
Remember we will package your fish so that you leave Sitka with your seafood boxed as efficiently as possible.
- Please bring carry on luggage only as your fish is your check-in baggage on your return flight home.
- Overweight Boxes & Excess Baggage Fees are the responsibility of our guests.
Wet Lock Box Dimentions (Your Fish Boxes)
- 20 lb. boxes: 26.5 L x 10.375 W x 5.0 H (inches)
- 50 lb. boxes: 28.75 L x 14.5 W x 7.34 H (inches)
- 70 lb boxes: 31.0 L x 15.5 W x 9.5 H (inches)
These boxes are a very heavy corrugated, waxed "wet-lock" fish box. We do take additional measures at our facility to ensure your seafood travels safely home with you. This added measure is compliments of A.R.A.C. and we have found it to be quite effective given the feed back from our guests.

Insulated liners are available at a minimal added cost. These liners have an "R" Value of 1 inch of Styrofoam & are re-usable.
