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!

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

Pete is a great guy, gets you on fish, keeps a clean boat and makes for a great experience. Three hours of pacific humpback whale watching in addition to lots of salmon. No halibut that day but hey, it's fishing not catching. Would go with Pete anytime.

I didn't know what to expect when booking our charter fishing trip. Captain Danny was right there as we disembarked our cruise line. We headed straight to the office, took care of our licenses and out in the water within 10 minutes. Danny was very good with a couple of amateurs trying the sport of salmon fishing. We had such...

Look know further if you want to fish for salmon between May thru September. Capt. Ray does an excellent job. Fishing was a little slow, most boats out that day really weren't doing any good, but Capt Ray..a native of Ketchikan understood the habits of salmon and at least everyone got to reel in a salmon......good boats and personnel. The... More

Many charters wouldn't take a group of two, but they were willing to pair us up with another group of two. It was amazing! Our boat guide was able to help us find our limit within 3 hours, 24 total fish. We talked to people on our ship that did the excursion booked through the ship that didn't even catch... More

This was our first experience in Alaska, and fishing for salmon. Awesome experience. Would recommend Ketchikan Charter Boats for anyone wanting the expert guild and help given by the captain of this charter.

Went directly through these guys instead of cruise ship and saved a good bit of money. Guys in the office were very accommodating and made sure a boat was available for the day. Capt. Pete of the Karen J was fantastic, was a tough day for fishing but he got us on the fish and my whole family had a... More

We booked this salmon fishing trip privately, not through our cruise ship. This was the ONE thing my husband wanted to do in Alaska so we had high hopes for this excursion. We were met on the pier a few minutes late by a kind gentlemen with a sign and we began to follow him to the boat. Shortly, our... More
