I’ve known Al for years and he always has a smile on his face and is going to make your day better. He takes meticulous care of his boats and knows his business. I don’t hesitate to recommend Al for charters here in Ketchikan!

Captain Al is the man!! He put us on the fish from start to finish!! 100+lbs of Silver in one trip! We truly could not have wished or dreamed of a better experience! He's the real deal. Most importantly, we had a lot of fun!!
