Adam was awesome! We visited in the off season so it was difficult to find somebody willing to go out. Adam was more than game, even when I told him that if we don't see whales we just want to look at the scenery (which I imagine would make for a pretty boring morning for him). He knew just where to go, and we found a whale in the first few minutes. From there, he spotted a killer whale (!) and we chased porpoises up the coast to find even MORE whales. It was like a dream come true. It truly made my husband's birthday, and our whole year. Adam was communicative from the start and made everything so easy. Also hot coffee on the boat (which has a nice private bathroom, if you're worried about that sort of thing like I am). One of the best experiences of my life that I will never forget.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review! As you know I am always up for a challenge and was and still thankful for the opportunity to have met you both. It truly turned out to be an amazing adventure for sure. Its a miss conception that all the whales leave at the end of summer. Often its a blessing to get out so late, at times the search for them can be tedious however once we find them we have them all to ourselves as we did. Once again thank you, and hope you both have a wonderful rest of the year. Stay safe and hope if you make it back up this way we can reconnect. Captain Adam

Adam was great his knowledge and experience helped us not only fish but experience this unique part of the world. We saw whales all day and wildlife in little inlets and coves. He showed us history and nature (along with great fishing spots) I rebooked for another full day. I HAD AN AMAZING DAY something you can only experience with a Local Guy

We had a fabulous time with Captain Adam. We saw orcas right away which was at the top of my bucket list. Humpbacks popped up about everywhere and we caught our halibut and rockfish. Thank you for a wonderful day!

Adam took us out for an amazing day of fishing and whale watching! My mom was in town visiting and she had the time of her life. Adam was really great at teaching her about the gear and how to fish. Beautiful, clean boat with everything you'd need... plus heat! I highly recommend booking a charter with Adam while you are visiting Juneau. Wear/bring warm layers and rain gear just in case. You'll be all smiles while out on the water!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The trip was a complete blast from start to finish. I honestly think she taught me some different techniques on how to reel fish up ;) Heat is always a plus and yes bring layers as the weather doesn't like to be the way we want it! Once again, thank you for the memories. Hope to see you again. Captain Adam

Samantha took us out for whale watching & the trip was spectacular! Watched humpbacks breeching & slapping the water with their fins! The water was like glass. Sam was so nice & just as excited as we were! I will be returning & will go fishing with this charter next summer! Thank you Sam & Adam for a great experience!! AAAAAAA++++++++++

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It pleases me to know you had such a spectacular trip with Captain Samanta. I hear that often that she gets excited seeing Whales and when fish are caught and I have to say it puts a smile on my face. Sounds like we will have to set you up for some fishing with Samanta next year. I am fairly sure she will put you on the fish and more amazing whale watching. Thank you for choosing us. Looking forward to hearing from you. Captain Adam
