great way to spend a day on the water.

Seldovia is a nice little fishing village, not much to do there then enjoying the views... More

The boat was manned by all women. They worked very hard to give this trip the personal touch. We found what wildlife was out there, and the boat ride was very enjoyable. The boat was very clean and the captain of the boat was a great driver, showing off her skills turning this large vessel on a dime. The trip... More

Crew was Excellent. Had a great time. If your looking for smaller Halibut book this cruise. Your limited to 2 halibut and very one on broad, caught their limit. If your after the large Halibut, you may want to look elsewhere. If not book here, and enjoy.

This is probably the best trip for the money of our 10 day trip. The boat does a great job of finding whales and other sea wildlife. Got great photos. You spend several hours in soldovia a fun little fishing village. Make your first stop the fishing bridge. Bald eagles congregate there often swooping in to steal fish scraps Great... More

One of our best AK excursions. Crew was simply AWESOME!!! Super nice and really helpful. Got us on fish right away. We did a 3/4 day excursion and my wife caught so many fish her arms got tired from reeling. What a great time and what a great company! Would do this again in a heartbeat!

We took our 86 year old mother on the Discovery boat with Rainbow Tours to Seldovia. The boat was comfortable with the option to sit inside or outside. Temperatures drop as the boat picks up speed, so we were glad that we had jackets. The captain took time to stop at important bird habitats. We also viewed otters and whales.... More

The good ship Sizzler and crew treated us to an absolutely gorgeous day and a most enjoyable fishing trip for halibut. The captain and crew quickly organized us for fishing, gave us us some pointers, and then started us fishing. It wasn't very long till we were hauling the fish in (literally) along with the crew's verbal help. The crew... More

We got to see many whales and the staff was great and knowledgable. They did their best for us to see as many whales and sea otters as possible. Sailed to Seldovia and it was a great trip. Greatly enjoyed it!!

It's not required or asked for but remember to tip your crew. I saw first hand a genuine hard working crew and they still... More
