It was cold and rainy.....we had booked a fishing charter for the entire day....6 people. Only 3 decided to go (no refunds as we booked THE BOAT, not per person AND WE KNEW THIS.) The 3 that went were ecstatic! The captain high tailed it out of the rain and mess and into the sunshine. They fished all day and... More

I went on the Orion with Captain John and it was one of the best experiences I have had halibut fishing from Seward. John was very professional in a very trying situation. We had several people from Estonia and it just didn't seem as though they got it ( very nice people ). John did every thing he could but... More

This is my second year in a row choosing Aurora Charters in Seward, Alaska. This July trip like last year was filled with great success for Halibut and Salmon. Our boat caught our limit of Halibut and Salmon on the two days I was on the charter. The boat captain was very good in finding good fishing spots and was... More

My family had an excellent day on the water with Captain John on the Orion fishing for halibut. We caught our limit plus two rockfish. We released half a dozen for size considerations and shipped home 60 lbs of halibut. We saw lots of wildlife and even a baby humpback whale. A great time.

My two boys and some friends chartered Aurora for our fishing adventure. I was impressed with Captain Chris and his deck hand Conner. They knew where the fish were and were very knowledgable about the fish that we caught. Captain Chris was willing to go the extra mile by getting us out on the fish even when the weather was...

In July 2013 I experienced a fishing trip that I and my two sons will never forget. The weather and conditions were great, we were on a six person boat with Captain John fishing for halibut and ling cod. John knew exactly where to fish, we had bites all day long, ending up with a 102 lb halibut and several... More

I have to note we went out on a rainy day with 3 ft swells which might have altered the experience. Full day combo halibut and salmon. Rough trip out took 3 hrs and left 3 of ten too seasick to fish. So glad wife or kid did not attempt to go because they would have been miserable. Captain threatening... More

This was our (five guys) fifth fishing trip to the Seward/Homer area. We fish Salmon, Halibut, Rockfish for four full days, always bringing home 100lbs. of fillet each. The difference this time was Captain Chris Bausch. His pleasant demeanor and professionalism made us feel like part of a team. We are not pro's and do make mistakes, but Capt. Chris... More

We went on a half day salmon charter with Captain Chris. My son's had a great time. Chris always kept us fishing, always there to bait the hook. We shipped 26 pounds of salmon home. Afterwards when we got in the car, we all agreed Capt Chris reminded us of the comedian Ron White. We are not sportsmen, but Chris... More

I booked this charter through the Fish House and was not told I'd be on a boat with 16 other people. In fact, I was told "I should have asked". We wanted a combo charter for both Halibut and Silvers. We were told to be at the dock by 6:15 am. The captain showed up at 7:15. The boat was... More
