Still on Cloud Nine after a day on the Sea Hunter!

The Sea Hunter and Captain Brad are a perfect pair. Both are straight forward, to the point, no BS, no glam, no bells n whistles. If you want to lounge on the deck and sip... read more

The Sea Hunter and Captain Brad are a perfect pair. Both are straight forward, to the point, no BS, no glam, no bells n whistles. If you want to lounge on the deck and sip cocktails, go on a cruise. If you want to be entertained, go to Vegas…if you want to “limit out” and fill your freezer, hop aboard... More

We went out with Capt. Brian and had a blast fishing! The swells made for an upset stomach on the way out, so if you are not used to open water, make sure you're prepared (I took Dramamine and still fought). Once we got to our location and lines were dropped we started catching fish right away. When the action... More

Brad's objective was to catch Halibut, and he wanted them BIG, and that is what we got. He worked the area all all day. I highly recommend Captian Bard, regardless of what boat he takes out in Valdez. Good value for my money. He just didn’t fill our limit but gave us the best opportunity for larger fish. The captain... More

Had a fantastic day out on the water. Captain Brian is a bit crazy and unorthodox but we could not have asked for a better guide. He is experienced and knowledgeable and knows just where to find the fish. He was great at helping us get our limits for the day and went above and beyond helping us get our... More

we were able to book the boat at the last minute. we learned afterwards that the normal price was lower... however, the tour was fine and we saw the Columbia Glacier and the sea lions on an island after the valdez bay. warning: if you go to the columbia glacier their boat cannot hit any icebergs not even small ones...therefore...

I've had the pleasure of fishing with both Capt. Tim and Capt. Brian on both a halibut and a salmon trip. Each experience was all one could hope for from a charter service. Nice, clean, and safe equipment. Both Captains are entertaining and very knowledgable about the local area and its wildlife. They are also passonate about fishing, and they... More

Had a great day out on the water with Captain Brian. He made the journey out to the halibut fishing grounds enjoyable with lots of stories, jokes, and overall entertainment. We caught limits of halibut and rockfish and had a blast! I would recommend Valdez Outfitters to anyone who is looking for a fun day seeing the wildlife that Prince... More

This was my first vacation in five years and I couldn't have picked a better way than to spend a day fishing with Valdez charters. The ride out to the fishing grounds presented me with the most beautiful scenic landscape I have ever seen. Brian was the skipper that day and was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The two hours it... More

I was fortunate enough to take both a salmon and halibut charter this year. On the salmon charter, we had Tim, the owner, as our captain. My boss and a friend joined me on this charter. Tim allowed us to take control on the fishing which added to our great experience. We had a good day on the water and... More
