4 of us had booked a day of salmon fishing with Josh Rose of Salty Sea Charters in Ketchikan as an excursion on our Alaskan cruise. We booked directly with him as I had researched and felt he was the No. 1 guy in Ketchikan based on reviews and his website. We were glad we did. His wife Ivy does... More

My wife and I booked with Salty Sea Charters months ago based on the reviews we read from TripAdvisor. Josh met us at the dock and within five minutes we were underway to our fishing spot, no wasted time. My wife and I had a blast and loved every minute of the trip. Josh is truly a professional Captain and... More

Josh was as professional and personable as one could hope for with my family of five. He was patient and knowledgeable about the area and fishing. He resides full time in Ketchikan, as many people do not and take the money out of the local economy. Even though we didn't catch as much as we wanted, we had a great... More

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

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
