Classic Alaska Charters is OPEN for business again in 2022!
CAC began official operations under the CoVid 19 pandemic on June 6th, 2020 at 12:01 am when the 14 day quarantine for ALL travelers to Alaska was lifted and the mandatory CoVid 19 testing of ALL travelers began. Our chef/stew/crew arrived on the very first flight into KTN and was one of the first travelers to be tested under that Traveler Mandate that “opened” Alaska for business. We were able to complete our 2020 season at 85% of our normal season schedule thanks to the protocol recommendations we put in place to comply safely and and smoothly with traveling to Alaska. CAC did not have a single guest test positive prior, during, or 14 days after their Alaska adventure in 2020 or 2021. Captain and chef/stew/crew also remained negative all seasons long and even after the seasons. This is a true testament to the effectiveness of the protocols in place for Covid 19 testing, and our CAC Covid 19 Mitigation Strategy. We will continue this “strategy” and plan through the 2022 season until further notice otherwise.
2022 Alaska Traveler Advisories for CAC guests as of January 8th, 2022
The State of Alaska has NO special entry or travel testing requirements and NO vaccine mandates or vaccine passports!
Click this link: “COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information” for information and advisories for travelers. Beginning June 1st, 2021 all travelers to Alaska will be eligible to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine in Alaska, including at participating airports.
CAC has a season tested “CoVid 19 Mitigation Plan” in place in order to operate safely in a CoVid 19 free environment aboard the Saltery “C”. Guests are “advised” to get a clinical test or an at home self-test for CoVid within 72 hours of departure to Alaska. Any person currently positive with COVID-19 should not travel to Alaska until they test negative. Vaccinations are not required. It’s highly recommended travelers bring a CoVid “therapeutic kit” with them consisting of Vitamin D3, Zinc, Famotidine, Aspirin, and if possible, Ivermectin. We travel in wilderness far from the medical centers so it’s good to have therapeutics that show evidence of value in the early stages of CoVid in order to buy time and preserve one’s health until we reach civilization and medical centers.
Request a CoVid 19 test from your Doctor or health care provider OR guests may request the CoVid 19 “At Home Test” by Pixel (LabCorp) to be conducted 72 hours prior to departure to Alaska. Testing at the airport upon arrival in Alaska is available for both residents and non-residents at no cost. No insurance is required.
Here’s more information about the Pixel Test: Pixel system from LabCorp: https://www.pixel.labcorp.com/at-home-test-ki…/covid-19-test

For those of you that don’t have a local clinic or hospital connection that’s available in your area or there isn’t a safe or convenient location, I suggest looking into one of these FDA approved CoVid-19 At Home Test Kits:
1) Pixel system from LabCorp: https://www.pixel.labcorp.com/at-home-test-ki…/covid-19-test
2) Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit: https://www.everlywell.com/products/covid-19-test/
Travelers to Alaska do NOT have to provide proof of vaccination to enter Alaska, HOWEVER, you need to check the airlines for updates to their vaccination and masking policies. CAC guests are not required to wear masks on the boat unless symptomatic.
