Our mission is to offer our guests
unrivaled adventure and lifelong memories
at our selection of premier fishing spots.

AK Adventures Unlimited is a small, Sitkan-owned fishing charter boat company that provides a safe, friendly and enjoyable experience on the ocean waters surrounding Sitka, Alaska. We know that each guest aboard our vessels might have saved for or waited a lifetime to take a trip to Alaska to fish. That’s why each member of our team will do their very best to exceed our guests’ expectations and provide memories to last their lifetime.

Meet our Team

Steve Obitz


Steve learned the ropes of Sitka coming from Minnesota to fish with his son Nate during the summers. After spending a whole season on the boat with Nate deckhanding during the summer of 2014, he decided to upgrade his captains license and return to Alaska during the summer of 2015. That’s when he started a new chapter in his life doing something that he loves! When he is not on the water in Sitka, Steve spends a lot of his time at his cabin guiding trips at Lake of the Woods, bow or rifle hunting for whitetails, and riding his motorcycle.

Ryan Leverington


Ryan came to Sitka in 2012 and started as a deckhand for Angling Unlimited, working his way up to getting his Captains License in 2015. He is a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota Duluth with a Bachelors Degree in Criminology. In the off-season, he invests the majority of his free time to two of his passions: hunting and fishing. He hunts for ducks in the fall, coyotes and fox om the winter, as well as fishes for Walleyes through the ice. Come Spring, the fly rod comes out for some trout just before heading back North to Sitka.

Samantha Obitz

Samantha is a graduate in the Hospitality and Tourism program at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. We were happy to add her to our team in 2012.
