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 caught 1 silver and 12 pink (I think that is what they were called salmon) We caught our limit so Bill took... More

You can tell a lot about a man by what he names his boat. Capt. Ray named his 'Integrity'. He is very personable, knowledgeable and professional. It was a great experience not only because we were in picturesque Alaska, we had someone who taught us about the area and the wildlife. By the way, did I mention we all caught... More

I wish I could give Ketchikan Charters a five star review. Did we catch salmon? Yes. Was it prompt in being sent home packaged like they said it would be? Yes. The problem, as other reviewers have written, was with Captain Dan. His people skills are far from being acceptable. I had never been ocean fishing. Give me a stream... More

We had the most wonderful experience with Ketchikan Charter Boats! Our captain, Ray, was incredibly kind and knowledgable and we had the best time. Everything from booking the reservation to arranging for our catch to be packed and shipped was simple, efficient and went according to plan. i would highly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!

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

My husband and I went out on a charter boat and it was an awesome experience. Captain Danny was very knowledgeable and very friendly. We had five people on our boat and we all ended up catching six fish which is the max. He led us to the spots where we had a ton of bites. There were many of... 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.
