Our captain, Ted, and deckhand, Anna were great! We wanted big halibut and we got them. We limited out on those and also caught rock fish and a lingcod. It was well worth the cost and we wile joy eating our catch for many months.

My family and I went on a charter to get meat for a wedding, and it was a great day. The crew were friendly, knowledgeable, and put us on the fish. We limited out on Rock Fish and Halibut, but the Silvers were a little slow. My soon-to-be brother-in-law caught a massive 112lb halibut as well, which made the trip... More

This was our first time fishing in Alaska. Our Captain Eric and Deckhand Justin were great at putting us on the fish. They were quick to keep lines baited, clear entangled lines, and of course get the fish in the box. Our group had a great time and look forward to using Puffin again in the future.

Our family has been making an annual trip to Alaska to go fishing for halibut and salmon for the past 20 years. We have fished in various places around the Kenai Peninsula over the years and have been fishing 100% out of Seward for the past six. Puffin has been our charter service all six years and we wouldn't have... More

5 STAR recommendation!! for Captain Nate Smith of Puffin Charters aboard their newest addition, Tenacious. This captain's decades of experience in various Alaskan seas, despite his young age made for a memorable and very productive trip in somewhat typical Alaskan adverse weather. The seasoned skills of the excellent crew of Oksana, the epitome of first mates, and the surprisingly capable... More

Had the pleasure of spending an entire day out on Resurrection Bay on the brand new Sorceress. Crew said boat was less than 2 weeks old and custom built, absolutely beautiful and fast and comfortable! Captain Eric and Deckhand Justin were hard workers and very patient with all clients, but were upbeat, casual, and fun! They both worked hard to... More

We limited out on halibut, and rockfish. We only caught one salmon but tons of cod. The boat was new and beautiful. We saw a bunch of breaching whales.

We were on the catamarann boat on the 18th of July. A great trip all around. Boat was FAST. Brought us to the distant halibut grounds quicker than any other boat. As a matter of fact, no other boat made it out that far. The captain, Jake and deckhand Patrick worked their butts off. Took care of all our needs,... More

We booked with this outfit from a friend's recommendation. He had a terrific time and so did we. Captain Jacob and deckhand Jackson were very helpful. There were 2 of us (both adults) w 4 others (2 adults and 2 kids). Jacob and Jackson did a great job in making us all feel like we were really doing the fishing... More

Had a great charter with Puffin. We were on the big boat- with a total of 18 clients on the boat, which worried me- because that seems like far too many for a charter- but the captain and deck hands worked really hard and found everyone good fish. I hope puffin pays them well, because they really had to work... More
