Why Fish With Drifters Landing?  What are you looking for in your Kenai River fishing adventure? If it's a quality, personalized experience, fishing in the quiet, solitude of a drift boat, then we have what you are looking for!  We have been offering our guests the opportunity to fish the Kenai as it should be fished.  We take a very limited number of customers each summer and provide a fishing experience you will never forget.  When you fish with Drifter's Landing from a drift boat, you spend more time fishing; 8 to 10 hours a day of guided fishing!  Isn't this what you came to the Kenai for?  Your line is always in the water and you're enjoying the tranquility of fishing from a boat, minus the exhaust and noisy motor!  This is True Fishing as it should be!
