We went fishing with Capt Nick for our grandson's 11th birthday. The weather had been rainy for the past 4 days solid. We got a brief reprieve for most of our trip. We each ended up each catching 2 salmon; and, although the fishing wasn't as great as they had previous days, we had a tremendous time. In addition to... More

I understand there are two Cap'n Dans. We had Danny H and had a great time. He was cheerful, positive and very helpful in explaining the use of the attractors, depths being fished and the types of salmon we caught and how to tell the difference. Towards the end of the charter he asked if we would like to fish... More

The company itself seems very professional and heard great things about Capt Tony. Unfortunately, our group had Dan. He was very rude, not helpful and yelled at a few of us for not doing things correctly. However, he never explained what to do, never introduced himself and spend over an hour circling the same spot, while catching nothing because he... More

Part of a great trip is the guide who is with you. Our guide Danny was very short on the information when asked a question, mostly answered with one or two words. Someone in his business should be more affable and good natured. The worst was on the ride back in he asked if we were keeping the one fish... More

My family just returned from a trip to Alaska. The hours we spent salmon fishing with Captain Nick was the best part of our trip. Nick made our two kids (age 6 and 9) feel right at home from the start by allowing them to "drive" the boat. He quickly stopped and fed a couple of bald eagles. Nick was... More

We booked with Ketchikan Charter in July 2013. It was a terrible mistake. We decided to book our own excursion instead of going through the Cruise Line and what a mistake. Our ship was about 1/2 hour late letting us off and by that time the captain was mad and the other two passengers had to wait also, but understood... More

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
