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 has been returning to Sitka to fish the summers since 2015. When he is not on the water in Sitka, Steve (and Jana) spend a lot of his time at his cabin guiding trips at Lake of the Woods, bow or rifle hunting for whitetails, riding his motorcycle, and being a grandpa to his granddaughter Emery.

Samantha Obitz

Operations Manager

Samantha is a graduate in the Hospitality and Tourism program at the University of Wisconsin-Stout and has been a part of the Alaska Adventures family since the summer of 2012. During her time in Sitka, she enjoys getting to experience the tourism side of her degree in meeting new clients from all over the world. In 2017 her and her husband Nate welcomed their first baby into the world, our new little dock assistant Emery. While back home in Wisconsin, Samantha enjoys hunting and ice fishing with her husband Nate, Emery, and chocolate lab Faith.

Jana Schissel

Office/Dock Assistant

Jana joined our team during the summer of 2018 as our dock/office assistant. She has been a great addition to the Alaska Adventures family. Her smile and positive attitude is something our guests love to be welcomed back to at the dock each day. In the winter, Jana owns her own estate sale business in Minnesota. When she isn’t helping families in need, she enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends, fishing for Walleye at Lake of the Woods, and hanging out with her dog Tim. Great Catch Captain Steve!

Roger & Mary Hames


Roger and Mary were married in 1978. Roger was born and raised in Sitka, and Mary has called Sitka home for over 37 years. After three decades in the grocery and retail business in Sitka, Roger and Mary diversified into sport fishing in 2015 out of their love for Sitka and its life-blood industry. When not looking after their businesses, the Hames’ enjoy traveling and spending time with family.
