Best fishing charter in Anacortes—we have returned several years and will always book a salmon day of fishing with them. Austin is a very knowledgeable and friendly captain. Never know what you will come home with, but the day is always fun!

Everything was great except the fish were not biting. Nothing you can do about that. I enjoyed the boat ride around the islands, and seeing whales and seals. Great staff and boat was very clean. I look forward to my next trip.
