Amazing day on the water. Captain Josh is a true professional. The boat was in pristine condition, the equipment was well taken care off and there was an ample supply of fresh baked cookies. We caught our limit of halibut and even managed to get a Ling Cod. All our halibut was dropped off at the processor, filleted, frozen, and... More

Salty Sea had great reviews on Trip Advisor and were one of three different charter companies we emailed last December. They were the only charter company to get back to us within a day or two - one of the other three got back within a month; the other didn't get back to us until a couple of days before... More

We had a great time fishing with Capt. Josh. He met us at the dock just as we disembarked the cruise ship. He took care of EVERYTHING, from fishing license to snacks, to setting-up the fishing gear. We stayed on the water for the full four hours. The weather was cold and wet, and the water was choppy, but that... More

When in Ketchikan you simply must do salmon fishing as it is the salmon capital of the world! This was a fun charter and although we only had a few hours as we were docked here a short time, all three of us caught salmon (with my wife being the champion)

Josh could not have been a better captain. Went fishing on 8-24-14. He put us on fish immediately and stayed on them for the full four hours. Boated 18 total and released maybe 8 more. Ivy's (Josh's Wife) homemade cookies were great . It was an experience of a lifetime. Eagles even tried to steal a Rockfish right off the... More

If you're searching for a first class experience, book with Salty Sea Charters. Ivy and Josh are customer oriented and work hard to provide you the best experience. We just did a salmon halibut charter on August 30. Between my son, son-in-law and myself we landed 15 silvers, 2 halibut and 9 cod. Josh did everything in his power to... More

We had a salmon fishing trip with Salty Sea Charters on August 10th during our Solstice Cruise. Except for the weather it couldn't have gone any better. We could see Josh and his boat from our balconies and once we confirmed it was him initiated a wave and called his name. It was nice to get an aerial shot of... More

Josh was awesome. He really worked hard to put us on fish. We went out on Aug 4. Final tally: 1 king, 12 silvers, 9 pinks, and a rock cod. The day started with Josh at the bottom of the boat ramp and we were off within minutes since he parked his boat nearby. First spot, about 30 minutes away,... More
