I was really nervous about booking an excursion that wasn't with my cruise line (DCL), but after this awesome trip with Captain Chris, I'd never hesitate again. It was the best. We mentioned how much my daughter loved sea lions and he even made sure we took the time to see them. It was so special. If we ever make... More

We did one day of whale watching/salmon fishing, one day of pure salmon fishing, and one day of halibut fishing with Cap't Chris and Josh. We all had a wonderful time. Couldn't have been better. The humpbacks and orcas were fascinating (bubble feeding no less). Of course, the salmon was delicious. Am eating salmon and halibut out of our freezer... More

Spent all day fishing with Captains Josh and Derek. They were perfect hosts! Very friendly, interesting, and hard working. They were successful in getting us on halibut, salmon and rock fish despite the horrible weather conditions.We even caught a very rare white king salmon that was delicious! We can't say enough good things about the charter. Captain Chris picked us... More

We were picked up on time at our hotel and returned to our hotel after the tour. Capt. Chris is a really nice guy. First mate Sara was wonderful. Here's the thing. The day we went out was a little rough. Not rough when we started out and not rough enough to cancel, but rough enough to keep the Capt.... More

We went with Chris on our Juneau port day and had an amazing trip, it was everything we hoped for. He is a great guy and our family got a much more intimate and wonderful wildlife viewing experience! Highly recommend it.

We again chartered a whale watching trip with Capt. Chris at rumrunner charters in Juneau, and not only is Chris very knowledgeable about marine life, he and his dog Brandi are a joy to be around. If you plan to go to Alaska anytime soon, book with Capt. Chris for a reasonable and close up whale watch, we would never... More

My husband and I were guests of Captain Chris and Rum Runner Charters in August. We had a full day, private charter to fish for halibut and salmon. From start to finish dealing with Captain Chris was a positive experience. The communication prior to the trip was prompt, clear, and professional. There were no surprises and all promises were kept.... More
