We had a great time fishing with Baranof. My daughter who is 12 and didn't want to go before hand even had fun. She actually caught the most fish. Got way more for my money than booking anything with the cruise line!

The boat was in nice shape and the guide was very helpful. The fishing was a success and the added bonus of seeing whales was amazing. The only complaint was when our fish was delivered in the mail, there was a lot less than expected.
