Just had an awesome fishing trip with Rum Runners

We had a great fishing trip with Captain Chris. Halibut and salmon. Chris was great at finding the fish and letting us do the fishing. Great boat, great crew.

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

We booked a whale watching tour with Capt. Chris Conder on July 21. We were treated to an amazing tour. We got close to 14 humpback whales bubble feeding and it was the highlight of not only this visit to Alaska, but of all 10 trips we have made to Alaska. Capt. Chris and his dog Brandy are a delight,... More

Captain Derek and his first mate Lucas were top notch! They provided our family of 6 with a beautiful experience. Their kind and adventurous spirit made this trip one for the books! Maria, our cab driver was excellent, she added flavor and spunk to our day. Highly recommend booking this trip!

We had a beautiful great day spent with Captain Chris and Brandy! The personal experience of a smaller craft and the ability to move about was much better than a large boat load of people. Our family of 6 enjoyed a beautiful trip and encountered several whales, eagles, sea lions, porpoises.. The photo opportunities were endless. Our close encounter included... More

The trip started with a little glitch as we were not able to catch our ride first thing as planned. Barring that particular incident the rest of the trip was amazing. We had booked a Whale watching and salmon fishing charter with Capt Chris of Rum Runners. We had a chance to meet Brandy who is a young playful lab... More

Our family trip will be one to remember! We (family of four with teen and young child plus one local adult) had a great experience with Captain Derek and deckhand, Luke seeing lots of eagles and even a deer on the beach as we left the harbor. Whales and gorgeous views continued our fishing adventure! The boat was super comfortable... More
