We did both halibut fishing and whale watching with Captain Shelby in August of 2020. I took my 8 and 11 year old daughters along with other family members out on the boat and we had a great time. We caught 3 halibut and a cod during our fishing time and we saw around 15 whales, a group of porpoises, sea lions and eagles during our whale watching tour. I highly recommend using 49th Fathom Charters.

Our family had a wonderful day with Captain Shelby. We went out with her 2 years ago and when we came back this summer we were happy she was available. She worked with our schedule, provided lunch and we all got our limit on fishing. She even cleaned them at the dock for us. We had a first timer with us and she was great with her too. I recommend Shelby for any group and I hope we can go again with her soon. We got halibut and pacific cod.

Captain Shelby knows her stuff! My sister and I boated 7 today--4 different species--with 3 keepers in just a short 4 hour run. Worth EVERY penny for these two East Coast gals. We grew up fishing the Atlantic, so we had high expectations. We were NOT disappointed! Highly recommend.

Ladies, this was such a great charter. You sure do know how to win over a captain from the start with fresh homemade cheddar biscuits, delicious, thank you! We caught fish, smiled and laughed. Couldn't have asked for two better ladies to spend my morning with. Hope to take you fishing again soon!

Captain Shelby was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly! Family had a blast! We were able to quickly catch our limits on halibut and moved to salmon. Caught almost immediately on each. Busy all day and each type of fish. Captain Shelby worked hard all day, but she loved it. She seemed to have as much fun as us. Captain Shelby loves her job and it shows! Would fish again with her in a heartbeat and hope to be able too soon!

Sheby Martin, Captain of the charter boat, was excellent. She went out of her way to tend to all of our fishing requests. We fished 3 days and due to her knowledge of the area we were able to catch a limit of halibut each day. We also had time available to do a little whale watching...the humpback whales really put on a show for us. All of the amenities on the boat were excellent. Shelby made us all feel like we were members of her family. This was a trip of a lifetime due to her expertise and personal touch.
