My wife and I boarded the Island Princess in Vancouver, B.C. on Sept.2 and sailed north to Alaska. First up on our cruisetour was Ketchikan, where our excursion around the bay was enhanced aboard Capt.Rob Holston's tour boat. Capt. Rob was very informative pointing out eagles and whales. The crew was very helpful as well as they answered all our... More

We booked our Halibut fishing excursion with Ketchikan Charter Boats on-line a couple months prior to our cruise based on tripadvisor reviews. We had been sub-contracted out to Captain Ray who did not disappoint us. We caught our limit of one halbut and then a bonus salmon per person. Deck hand not very helpful-- fished himself so didn't help customers... More

Danny did great job. He was waiting for the 6 of us as we got off the ship. We immediately got on the boat and took off. After a brief boat ride he had all 6 lines in the water and we started to troll for Salmon. Within minutes we had one on the line, he got the net out... More

We booked a trip with Ketchikan Charter Boats, not fully understanding that this business is sort of like a clearinghouse for charter fishing -- they have lots of captains with boats, and assign you to a captain. Guests get different captains, different boats, different experiences. We were in Ketchikan for a week, and I called to confirm the reservation, and... More

My brother Paul, his wife Wendy, and I caught our limit of three Halibut on our fishing trip with Ketchikan Charter Boats, Inc. Captain Dan Leathers is an experienced fishing guide and has a beautiful 35 foot boat. Captain Dan was friendly and very helpful with well timed fishing tips. This fishing trip was by far the best shore excursion... More

Danny was worst captain. Did not speak, did not help, told us we were ruining his hobby. Swore in front of kids. Stomped his foot and kicked things all during trip. Spent $600 for 2 kids to have a terrible memory of Alaska. 2 other boats with our group and they had wonderful captains, Nick & Dan. 6/15/13

As the only member of my travel group interested in fishing while in Alaska on a cruise, I found some difficulty booking a charter for myself (while avoiding the cruise line headboats). Many charter companies would not book me unless I was willing to pay for the whole boat, which can be a little steep. Ultimately, I was referred to... More

Capt Dan was great. Overall experience was good and would recommend him highly. Saw lots of wildlife and caught plenty of fish. He was very informative and friendly.

The time was 6:00am and it continued to rain as we entered Ketchikan, Alaska. We had to be on the dock early this date as Salmon fishing was the order of the day, 7:00am and we were signing the charter boat’s paperwork. This was not a Princes excursion so Capt’n Dan admonished all we would be prompt about making the... More
