My six year old son and I were thankful to fish with Captain Chris and Captain Troy. Captain Chris was helpful and communicative leading up to our trip. He greeted us on time and we quickly headed out fishing. The scenery and the weather were incredible. Captain Troy, in particular, engaged my son well throughout the trip. Luke was thrilled to be fishing and hooked a trophy coho as his first fish. Captain Troy coached him through reeling it in and both Captains shared Luke’s excitement. They may have been even more excited than he was. I appreciated their willingness to have a young guy on board and the way they related to him. He was definitely not treated as a nuisance. It made my mama heart happy to see Luke have an incredible day. Our time flew by, but we brought home some beautiful fish and managed to spot four humpback whales in addition to other wildlife. Thank you Rum Runner Charters for a wonderful trip!

Had a great time on my charter with Rum Runner! Both captain Chris and his deckhand Adrianne were great!! It was a cold day but the cabin was heated and there was hot cocoa. Caught some Halibut and Salmon and even saw some whales along the way

Such a great experience! We were able to see a variety of wildlife and captured some breathtaking pictures of Whales, Eagles, and Porpoises. Chris and Troy were extremely informative on the area and provided an unforgettable experience. I will definitely be going back to them for a fishing trip!

We had a private charter with Rum Runners in August 2020. The owner captained our trip (who is a Marine Biologist himself!). We saw lots of Humpback whales within minutes of going out. The captain and crew are well seasoned, attentive to your needs, safety conscious and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the trip and enjoyed learning so much about humpbacks and Juneau itself.
