Stop looking elsewhere! I am the type of read all the reviews and the best deals before I spend my money. This trip is hands down blew every expectation I had out of the water! William (our captain) made our Alaska trip exceptional. He picked us ip 10 steps from the boat and whisked us away for the time of our lives! William took us directly to a spot where we couldn't even get our line all the way down before the fish were on our hook. And DON'T waste your money on the cruise ship excursions...William watches the time to make sure you are back on the boat while he takes your fish to be processed for you.

My husband, friends and I stopped in Ketchikan on an Alaskan cruise and wanted to go fishing but also did not want to pay the sometimes astronomical pricing for an excursion booked through the cruise line.

William’s Alaska King Charter fishing tour was absolutely the way to go! He was able to pick us up in his boat right outside the cruise which was incredibly convient and maximized our time fishing in Ketchikan. We went out to some waters that he is familiar with that are known to have halibut, and sure enough, we caught some! William is very pasionate and knowledgeable about the sport which made the experience that much more amazing. I’d also like to add that he works well with experienced fishers AND beginners like myself! Highly recommend looking into this if you’ll be in Ketchikan during a cruise, or if you’re passing through town. Also, pro-tip — book in advanced as the busy summer season approaches.

If you have the chance to fish with Alaskan King Salmon owner and guide William, I highly recommend it. Whether it’s for a half day or whole day, whether you want to catch halibut or salmon he is the man for the job. He works hard to ensure everyone is having fun and catching their dream fish. William is not only passionate about fishing but also from our experience a great guy.

Our trip we caught Salmon (pink, coho and king) and also halibut. Tons of fish. In two days we are going home with 250lbs of fish! Wonderful experience.

As a first time fisherwomen to Alaska, this wonderful experience exceeded my expectations. William was great to work with in setting up this trip and responded with correspondence in a timely manner. I met Capt. Kevin at the docks in the morning and we set off in a clean, safe and well equipped 28ft boat. Kevin was friendly, knowledgable and a local with great information about the Ketchikan fishing scene. His longtime expertise in fishing was comforting and he lead us to a gorgeous and plentiful fishing spot where I caught my limit. He pointed out spouting whales as he was guiding us through a fantastic fishing experience. I would love to return and create more grand fishing tales and memories with this team.

A great overall experience with an incredible guide. He did everything we asked and put us on fish within 15 min of getting on board. Picked up from the cruise ship dock and returned on time. Dont forget to ask about the Bald Eagle! Cho, the onboard Laberdoodle is a great mascot!

Captain William really knows his stuff. We had an amazing time chasing after Halibut and rock fish south of Ketchikan. The boat was very comfortable, and the spacious deck and sides allow for anglers to move around when the halibut are bending your rod down. Captain William has a great wealth of knowledge and shares his stories and experiences on the water freely. You will both catch fish, and learn about techniques and tips to help you in the future. We visited in April, which is a slow time for fishing, but William still put us on fish and we got our limit. If you're lucky, he may even bring along his lab mix Cho to keep you company. We plan to book with Alaska King every time we visit Ketchikan.

Choose this charter boat!! My teenage son and I had the most incredible time with William on his charter boat. There were fish on the line within 5 minutes of anchoring, and literally fish on all day. William was a great captain , and we had tons of fun. We rented the charter for 2 days and both days were great! We stayed closer one day and went farther out the 2nd. The boat had plenty of room, a heated cabin, and a bathroom. I cannot say enough good things about chartering with this company. I had the most memorable trip with my son, and William at Alaska King Charter was a huge factor in making that happen.

This was absolutely one of the best times and experience My family and I ever had. I always do my homework before any trip , after spending hours reading reviews I came up with this charter . Neither My sons or I had any experience about fishing and William and his crew made it easy and pleasant for us. They were very attentive and devoted , answering all our questions and explaining in detail what we need to know before starting this adventure. At the first moment we saw William and his crew, for me it was like I had met a long time friend. They definitely have expertise in knowing where to take us to fish and at the same time enjoy the scenery and sightseeing. although it was our first time we got our limit out of halibut, I Definitely will be going back the first chance I get.

This guys are the best. I went fishing 2 days with them, both days caught the limit on salmon and halibut. William is very good at what he does, he knows the good spots. While other boats are looking for the fish we got our limit on the salmon in 2 hours (5 guys x 6 fish=30 fish).Fishing for salmon is very exciting, fast and intensive, this is what sport fishing is all about. Halibut fishing is different more relaxing and requires patience and tactics, but the reward is greater, when you pool out that 60+ pound fish out of the water nothing compares to that feeling. Definitely doing it again maybe with the family this time.

We had an absolute blast with Captain William! He is an excellent angler and knew all the tricks. He even could accurately predict the fish type and size from just the line shaking. Definitely go fishing with Alaska King, you will be so glad you did!
