Welcome to Alaska Boat Rental & Fishing Guide Service
In our inventory:
(11) custom built 18' and 20' power boats
(3) 17' and 21' drift boats
(1) 22' C-Dory ocean boat
Whether fishing for salmon or halibut, digging for clams, or sightseeing for wildlife, we supply top end rental equipment to make your time in Alaska an experience to remember!
Other common uses of our power boats include dip netting (Alaskan Residents only), hunting, and surveying!
Our drift boats allow for self-guided anglers to fish in motor restricted regions, fish during "drift boat Monday's" on the Kenai River, and cater to those who prefer the peach and quiet of drift fishing.
We provide the equipment to make every vessel coast guard approved and go beyond the essentials to make the equipment safe and comfortable.
Looking for a fully guided fishing trip? We provide the boats, the guides, and all the equipment! Show up and fish with one of our experienced guides.
In addition to our boat and equipment rentals we provide first class guided trips on the Kenai and Kasilof rivers, and can help schedule your entire Alaska experience including fly-out fishing, bear viewing, glaciers, halibut trips, and lodging.
And if you want to get really hands on, for anglers interested in learning to operate a boat on the Kenai or Kasilof River, or the waters of Cook Inlet, this is for you! The Fishing Academy is one of the most unique experiences available on the peninsula.
Our hands on approach is tailored towards those individuals who are not afraid to learn and are seeking to create memories that are one of a kind.
You'll be operating our boats from the moment we start the day. You'll gain the confidence, experience and knowledge you need to successfully maneuver the boat and handle the equipment to target Chinook (Kings), Sockeye (Reds), Silver (Coho), Halibut and even clamming across Cook Inlet on your own.

From our customers:
We've been coming to the Kenai River for fishing for years. We met the guys from Alaska Boat Rental in 2015 and what a bunch of great guys. We've been fishing with them every since and couldn't imagine it any other way.
It's great to see this business operating on the Peninsula and they have great quality boats and know exactly what they are doing on the water. With the limited availability of public access fishing areas on the river, renting a boat is definitely the way to go. You can fish at your own pace and and your own times, have access to areas only accessible by boat, have more flexibility to find the fish, and then...chase them up the river! We look forward to this every summer!
"Fishing in Alaska is a blast but the access you gain from a boat is the only way to go. Alaska Boat Rental & Fishing Guide Service were so professional and easy to communicate with and their equipment is top notch. I've already booked two boats for next year. I highly recommend these guys."
My husband surprised me with a trip to Alaska, which was at the top of my bucket list!!! It became even more important when we recently found a picture of my mother, when she was approximately the same age as I am now, holding up a big salmon she had caught in a river in Alaska. We decided it was time to stop dreaming and figure out how to capture a similar picture. In July of 2016, we headed to Alaska, and using the boats from Alaska Boat Rental, made that dream a reality! We are so happy that we caught several large red (sockeye) salmon, and several very nice halibuts!!! Can't say thanks enough to Alaska Boat Rentals, for helping us make that dream come true!

We took a trip to Alaska and rented a boat from Alaska Boat Rental. Was a fantastic experience. The equipment is in great shape, the boats and engines are all new, and they are happy to share advice on where to fish. We fished the lower Kenai river for sockeye, back trolled for King Salmon and even went out for some halibut out of the deep creek launch into the inlet. I'd highly recommend renting boats, and even other equipment they offer, from Alaska Boat Rentals! Will definitely be renting from them on future trips.
