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.

This is the second time our group of four has gone out fishing with Capt. Brett. The first time was for winter blackmouth salmon last winter, today for summer chinook and pinks. Brett is a very experienced guide who know the waters around Anacortes like his own backyard. He also is very generous in sharing his knowledge explaining the where's... More

Everytime we go to Anacortes we always use Brett at Highliner Charters to get us on the fish! Fantastic boats and super friendly staff! Can't wait for the pinks to come in this year! Springers are in now!

Captain Tyler did a SUPER job today! He was very informative, friendly and helpful; directing me how to land the big one! He made it real easy for people who don't frequently fish. Yeoman's service! Very knowledgeable. AND, he even filleted my 60# catch! Can you tell we'll be back again :-) Thank you for a GREAT day! Ken &... More

On the Afternoon of May 24th I took my Twin boys on a Halibut fishing trip to celebrate both graduating College. We chartered a half day trip with HIGHLINER Charters and Captain Austin. The boys and I had a memorable trip, Captain Austin, is a great Captain, very knowledgeable about the area, and got us on fish. We had an... More

Great experience. Capt. Austin was knowledgeable and friendly. Conditions weren't ideal with a good deal of choppy water so he moved us into a great spot that was protected from the chop. I definitely would go back AND recommend it to anyone!

They arranged for me to get out at last minute notice on a holiday. From there on things got even better. Capt. and crew were experienced helpful and knew where to find the big ones. We caught our limit and they filleted the fish at the end of the day. Beverages were available at no extra charge.

For my Grandfather's 90th birthday (He's still highly mobile and spry) he asked to go fishing. Due to some of his health issues and the fact that I'm outdoorsy in the state park with showers kind of way, I was looking for creature comforts of a closed heated cabin and a stationary toilet that also happened to take us fishing....

Captain Brett was great! Explained everything and was patient with us amateurs. Stayed at the fishing location a little longer than planned, resulting in another fish being caught. Bonus points for cleaning and filleting the catch for us. I'll be recommending them to others for sure!

We were fortunate to have an opportunity to go out with Brett on opening day for Kings this year and had a great time. We were picked up at Friday Harbor bright and early and quickly reached the fishing grounds and got the lines in the water. Brett was very knowledgeable and obviously passionate about fishing. He worked the downriggers... More

My teenage son and I booked two days with Highliner Charters and had a terrific experience. The owner of the company, Brett, was a great resource as we planned our first trip to the San Juans -- from suggesting a place to stay that was convenient to the marina to sending some info on how to get around Anacortes one...
