I had called 2 other charters that were not very eager for my business..disagreeable & cranky! Much to my surprise! Maybe burnout! But Ivy & Josh were prompt to call me back & get our people on the charter. We were met on the dock where our cruise ship docked. Very easy to get to Capt. Josh's boat...which was well... More

This fishing charter is owned by Josh, an amazing young fisherman. His lifetime of fishing makes him the real deal. You will catch fish and his boat is spotless. His knowledge of the waters off the shores of Ketchikan Ak. give you a great day of fishing and he is very comfortable in these waters. Sometimes great weather, sometimes not.... More

We live in ketchikan but have never been fishing like this! Our family came to visit and we couldn't get anyone to return our calls for a last minute all day charter. When I Googled "deep sea charters" though,we found Salty Sea Charters, and we are so thankful none of the others returned our numerous calls. Josh took our charter... More

Booked a trip with Salt Sea and when we arrived at the dock to fish, no one was there to meet us. I called and was informed that their boat was broken and we would not be able to go out. I understand things happen but we were never notified and when inquiring around town for someone else to book... More

Josh provided... More

On the first day, 6/23/2015 there were 6 of us. Josh put us on the fish right away, and it never stopped. We caught kings, silvers, halibut and rock fish. The fishing was fast and furious, with limits for all. The whale watching was an unexpected bonus. The humpbacks put on a great show for us. 5 of us went... More

We are two couples. My wife and I have fished before but the other couple hadn't. Our friends were very excited to have an opportunity like this to go out on our own boat. We chartered with Captain Josh on May 28,2015 for a 4 hour trip. I wished we had done the entire day! Josh met us on time... More

We heard that the month of May was blessed with sunshine and warm weather in Alaska. Instead, we had the true Alaskan experience with wind, rain, and cold weather for our fishing charter on 06/07/15. We were met at the dock by Captain Josh as arranged and did a quick walk to the boat moored nearby. As we cruised out... More

As a long time fisherman, and past head boat captain myself. You can see Josh knows his stuff. We booked a trip for the last week of May for Halibut, with an even mix of guys and gals. We limited out on Halibut (plus a throw back) and had about 10 Cod and some Rockfish. Josh met us right at... More

It was a real pleasure to spend the day fishing with Captain Josh. We booked our charter on Salty Sea with Josh for our day in Ketchikan. I really wanted to catch a fresh king salmon while in Alaska because I love salmon. I was shopped out and fishing was a great way to spend the day in our last... More
