father son activitiesLife becomes all too busy with sporting events, family get-togethers, work deadlines, and so many life happenings that pull you in every other direction. Island Point Lodge offers a secluded Alaska fishing destination with less noise and a peaceful place to build your family connections through one of the best father-son activities. One of the most important things in life is spending time with your son while he’s young and wants to learn as much as possible from the person he admires the most⁠— his dad. It’s vital to make time for father-son activities because before you know it, the kids will be fully grown. Father-son family fishing trips are an essential way to learn about one another and will leave life-lasting memories. 

No Guide, No Problem

Take a break from the TV and spend one-on-one time with your boy outdoors during the Alaska fishing season. As for father-son activities, plan a dad vs. son challenge where you can see who reel in the most fish or land the biggest catch of the day. Unlike most Alaska fishing lodges, you’ll be able to have quality time alone during your family fishing trips without the use of guides along. Teaching your little guy how to fly-fish in Alaska using your own techniques instead of a guides could be a family tradition that’s passed on from generation to generation.
