We had planned to head out to a remote USFS cabin for a week of fishing and needed some rental gear to cook food, chairs and water handling kit. Everything was delivered in good working order to the dock where we were leaving from and was lightweight and well packaged for floatplane travel. Owner was very helpful and has many other items not listed on the website so ask if something is not listed. Veteran friendly company and do a lot of Charity work camping etc with wounded vets. Good value and good service.

My family and I were on the Oceania Regatta and booked this excursion privately. First off, when they tell you they will meet you at the ship, the mean it. We took one step off the Regatta platform and JR/Jen were right there waiting for us, with the boat 10 feet away. The boat was a good size, clean and had a bathroom. The weather was perfect, with blue skies and temperatures that allowed for t-shirts. As the others have mentioned, JR and Jen were so kind, generous and knowledgeable that it was like spending the afternoon with family. They had AMAZING cookies prepared by Jen's mom (we ate them all and there were plenty), salmon dip (delicious) and crackers and veggies. They even had soft drinks and water on board. Due to the late docking of Oceania Regatta, we only had about 4 1/2 hours to fish. We cruised out to a beautiful spot where we spent the afternoon. JR knows where the fish are biting and it only took about 15 minutes before we started catching salmon. In fact, we were lucky to have caught two king salmon at the exact same time and ended up with 9 fish in total which are being processed and shipped home. All in all, this was one of the best excursions we have ever taken. Jen/JR were a lot of fun and spending the afternoon with them, fishing and learning about Ketchikan was priceless. Our family is big on "memory building" and this excursion tops the list. If you are considering a cruise or trip to Ketchikan and like fishing, Experience One is the boat to hire.

We went on a fishing charter in August with Experience One and had a great time with JR and Jen. It was my 40th birthday and they decorated the boat and had a card for me. It is awesome how their boat is waiting for you right outside the cruise ship...we could see them from our veranda when we docked. I was able to arrange beer and wine to have on board ahead of time for the occasion. Our ages ranged from 4-40 and JR and Jen were great with all of us, including the kiddos. There is a covered cabin and delicious snacks which we all enjoyed. And...we caught a birthday king salmon that we had shipped back to Texas! We bought our license on board the boat so we brought cash for that l, the beer/wine, and tip. Outstanding day!!! Thank you for a 40th I will never forget!!!

Just enjoyed a half day salmon fishing trip with Experience One and had a great time! The crew was fabulous and took care of our family that ranged in age from 10 years old to 81 years old. We bought our fishing license in advance but you can buy it onboard. Snacks are provided and there is a toilet aboard. In addition to catching 7 salmon (4 pink, 2 soho and 1 king) we spotted some stunning bald eagles. Great experience all around!

We had an amazing day of fishing with Jen and JR. We fished for King Salmon and landed a big one. Jen and JR were terrific with our small kids (ages 4-11) and made it a great day for all of us. We were celebrating a birthday and they even decorated the boat for us. It really was a wonderful charter. Thank you so much for making it a special and memorable day for our family!
