Instead of booking a fishing excursion through the cruise ship, we booked through the Ketchikan Fishing Charter company and were very glad we did so! Since there were only 5 of us on the boat, including our captain, it made for a nice and personal experience. Additionally, we were lucky enough to get Ray Kolean as our Captain. Ray was... More

I didn't go on a charter boat but I often went to the cafe and they have great service!! The young woman who runs the cafe is a treasure! I would definitely recommend going there and checking out all their services!

Booked this trip as a solo and was joined by two couples and had a great time. Our captain, Danny was very professional and helpful. He meet us at the dock where our cruise ship docked and we headed out to fish and we promptly started catching fish. I would highly recommend Ketchikan Charter Boats and would use them again...

Great day with catching 20 fish with Danny as our great captain. This company was very professional and took care of all of the details meeting us when we arrived on our cruise ship. Danny was fun and really helpful. We had beautiful weather and I am proud to say not only did we catch several silver salmon we landed... More

Booked a trip for my son and I with Ketchikan Charter Boats based on other reviews. Our trip was fantastic, beautiful weather and Capt. Don was fantastic as well, he knows the waters very well and knows where the fish are located. We hooked up instantly once our gear was in the water and we caught Salmon all day long... More

I have fished with Captain Ray Kolean on the Integrity for the last 10 years. He is professional, reliable, friendly and an exceptionally good fishing guide. He has been doing this for over 20 years and knows how to maximize a day on the water. He works with a network of other "Skippers" and if the fish aren't biting at... More

Thanks Captain Dan for a great fishing experience! Dan Leathers was very helpful and patient with us. There were 6 of us on the boat and we each caught our quota. We just received our 24 pounds of salmon in the mail and can't wait to try it! Thanks for a great fishing day!

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
