Pros: the crew are nice, friendly, and know what they are doing. They tried to make our time on the boat as enjoyable as possible and we appreciated that. Overall, we left disappointed and feeling like we wasted a lot of money. Added costs were frustrating.... The don’t pickup so the cab is $30 from downtown + $40/ person for a fishing license I regret paying for the license because i genuinely didn’t fish. I sat on a boat and watched the employees try to fish for us. They do everything for you without any demonstration and then if a fish bites the nearest person can reel it in. That’s the person who “caught the fish” and keeps it. 1/6 guests on our boat “caught” a fish. Nobody in my party did. Of course, most of this is due to luck. My disappointment is more about how we didnt get the experience of fishing rather than the outcome. If i left feeling like i learned something about how to fish that would have been enough.

Great day of whale watching with Moore Charters! Our original tour was cancelled due to being closed because of COVID. Grant took us on a private whale watching excursion on short notice. We saw several whales. He went the extra mile for us and it was so appreciated!

We were stuck in Juneau, unable to fly to Haines for the second day and we only had a couple of days before we had to be back for our return flight. Thankfully a traveler from Skagway connected with Grant and arranged a private charter for up to six. We got in on the trip, as well a couple who'd come from Thailand on a long planned trip and who also had only a few days to spend in Haines. Grant was ever so genial and took us on a lovely, direct ride. Not his usual business, but one for which were were all so very grateful. I heard that it resulted in calls for the same service the next day, too!

Our captain was clearly knowledgeable about fishing for silver salmon and halibut, and we caught some of each, though he spent a bit too much time talking about himself. The big disappointment, though, was the deckhand who clearly had no idea what he was doing, and got in the way more than he helped. The captain was very apologetic at the end of the trip, expressing his frustration with the help.

We were unable to book a fishing trip with our cruise ship and found these guys from a google search. Captain Dave and his mate were unbelievable they knew the fishing spots and put us on fish right away! We almost hit our limit for halibut and caught a mess of other fish. I highly recommend this trip for everyone that wants to have a great day fishing with a backdrop you couldn’t paint any better your self
