GREAT Fun and Fishing with Captain Josh!

Our group of six had a fantastic time with Captain Josh and deckhand Sam. We've also had Captain Chris last year who was wonderful as well! GREAT experience!

Get away from the "Big Box" tours and treat yourself to the Rum Runner whale watching Excursion with Cap'n Chris. This will be the thing you remember most about your trip to Alaska. I have been on this tour twice and when I go back to Alaska I'll do it again. Keep your cameras ready because you Will see whales... More

Had a great time. 3 days fishing with Captain Josh. Lot of fish, fun and educational to boot. We will be back and recommend Rum Runner Charters to everyone.

Rum Runner did it again! Captain Chris is the best! Our first trip on Rum runner many years ago was so memorable that we chartered for our family and friends this year. Another great trip! By far the best spent money on our Alaska vacation!

During our cruise stop to Juneau we had decided to go fishing/whale watching with Rum Runner. Chris was easy to correspond with and we set up our reservation. As the trip neared he confirmed the final details and we were picked up at Mendenhall Glacier and transported to the dock area. Once at the dock area we met Capt. Josh.... More

My Husband and I chartered a private 6 hour Salmon Fishing Trip with Rum Runners. We were on an Alaskan Cruise with my Parents. Rum Runners was AMAZING to work with and had a Taxi waiting for us when our ship arrived in Juneau. The excursion was WAY more than we expected! (much better than a group trip booked through...

Capt. Chris and Brandi, his yellow lab, made our first trip to Juneau a blast! He was waiting to pick up my family of 4 at the dock and gave us a brief tour enroute to the marina. Brandi proved to be a bonus throughout the day for our 2 teenagers. Although we only caught one keeper what impressed us... More

Be sure to have a pair of binoculars! You will be part of the search for whales as the crew explains what to look for. We easily found a pod of orcas and several humpbacks in our 4-hour experience. How exciting it was to watch them close up in their natural habitat! The crew was extremely knowledgeable in the whales'... More

This was one of the best vacation experiences of our lives. The price is beyond reasonable, even if it was just a simple whale-watching ride like most of the big boats promoted by the cruise ship. But it was so much more than that. The (private for just our family of four!) boat was very clean and comfortable. There was... More
