Description:

Guided salmon and bottom fishing charter trips in the beautiful San Juan...

Guided salmon and bottom fishing charter trips in the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State. There is no way to describe the excitement of putting folks on their first king salmon, giant lingcod, or huge halibut. The smile is from ear to ear, you can almost see their hearts pounding through their chests, and their hands shake for an hour afterward in response to the adrenaline. The stories get told, and the memories last a life time.

My son has wanted to catch a big salmon since he was a young boy. Yesterday Captain Tyler made that dream come true. He caught two amazing CoHo's off Deception Pass. He's hooked for life, and we're hooked on Highliner Charters they made it great and a lifetime memory for me and my son. thank-you

On 9/5/15 I went salmon fishing with Captain Brett off Deception Pass with my family and within 3 hours we had our limit of 8 coho! Brett was fantastic with my grandsons and managed avoiding the boat traffic like a true expert. In July I went with Captain Gary off of Eagle Point (west San Juan Island). All four fishermen...

This is the second year with Highliner Charters. In 2014, we caught king salmon. This year we caught our limit of "pinks". We went out two days and on the first day trip, we saw several whales. We fished just off San Juan Island. The staff is courteous and helpful throughout the day. Tyler is a great captain and did... More

It was our first time to Anacortes and my wife and I wanted to go fishing while in town. We read Captain Brett Rossen' story and experience with great interest and just knew his was the Charter to call. We were fortunate that there had been a cancellation because he does book up months in advance. So in less than... More

This was my first time salmon fishing. What a great experience. Captain Brett was great. Very helpful and patient. His focus all afternoon was to get fish in the boat. Experience was great from initial phone call to the end of the day. Would highly recommend Highliner Charters. Guaranteed you will not be disappointed. Can't wait to get back and... More
