Captain Chris seems to know where to find the salmon! We caught 4 Kings and 8 Coho (Silvers.). They provide excellent service, lunch and they clean and bag the fish for us. Even though we didn't specifically "whale-watch," Chris was great about spotting them and we saw several humbacks.

We booked Capt. Chris and his team last year on our Disney Alaska Cruise. We are a small tour operator in the Bahamas so we were comfortable to know that we could book direct with a smaller operator who has great reviews. We were not disappointed at all. Every aspect from booking, to price to care and comfort was excellent.... More

Myself and my two kids chartered Captain Chris to go whale watching. My kids and myself really enjoyed it. Very professional and we saw a lot of whales and seals. It was my daughter's favorite excursion of the whole cruise. Brandi was such a friendly dog and so cute. Riley the Captain helper was also great. No problems and very... More

Cap't Chris took our group of ladies out for a 1/2 day salmon fishing trip full of fun and 14 salmon!! He found a large group of humpbacks along the way who put on a great show. Brandy, the trusted yellow lab, was the ideal "fish dog" but didn't forget to kiss the girls. Great team with Riley working hard... More

Fantastic experience from start to finish with Rum Runners Charters, Captain Chris, Deckhand Riley, and of course Brandy! We were one of the first boats to hit the water, way ahead of the big Whale watching boats. We were greeted by Brandy ( our new best friend, and lap dog) so what a way to start the day. And It...

Our chartered fishing trip on the Rum Runner with Captain Derek and his deck mate Alex was the highlight of our Juneau trip! Derek and Alex went above and beyond to show us a good time and to make sure the trip was everything we wanted it to be. We caught our limit of halibut and then went on to... More

We've used Captain Chris' Rum Runner Charters twice and were extremely pleased both times. We saw whales up close, breaching on one trip and bubble feeding on another! We saw lots of seals and eagles up close both times. Captain Chris is knowledgeable, engaging, professional and always safe. Brandy his loving dog adds the perfect ambiance plus her own priceless...

Our party of 5 booked The Deluxe Salmon Fishing and Photo Safari. We were in Juneau with a Disney Alaskan Cruise. Captain Chris arranged for Scott of Yellow Tour Taxi to pick us up early in the morning once our ship was in port. We enjoyed the scenery and stories that our cab driver, Scott shared with us. The whale... More
