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!
