Ever dreamed of fishing in protected, unspoiled waters? Ketchikan, known as the “Salmon Capital of the World” offers some of the best salmon and halibut fishing in Alaska. It doesn’t matter if you’re an amateur or an expert angler – with a rod and reel in your hands, our highly skilled captains will help you make that big catch just like the locals do! Then we help you arrange processing and shipping, so you can have your “bragging rights” shipped right to your home. And unlike many other charter companies, we can book from 1 to 60 people on charters. Don’t forget, we book up quickly, so plan ahead and make your reservation early.

4 hour Salmon trips 6 hour Halibut trips

We have live on line booking check out our calendar!

We recently traveled to Ketchikan via cruise from 8/27 to 9/3 2016. Googled fishing and the charter boats came up! We had an amazing time and Ray was awesome. He has convinced us to move out there, just need to figure out how to leave CA. We ended up with 2 fish, almost caught a 30-40 pound silver salmon but... More

I had an awesome afternoon fishing with Captain Roy. He was very passionate about fishing. Roy talked about the area and was very easy going. I would recommend this company looking to go fishing.

Disappointed with the amount of time we actually fished . We took little side trips to view seals an eagle and some guys homestead these took over an hour out of the good fishing that w.e did finally end up on . If i wanted to go sight seeing i would have booked a different excursion .

Ketchikan Charter Boats provided one the highlights of our Alaska vacation. We chose to book a charter though Ketchikan Charter Boats instead of going through the cruise lines and it turned out to be one of my best decisions. They were prompt and waiting for us as we walked off the ship. We quickly got on our way and were... More
