I was so excited to catch a halibut. Also caught salmon.What a delightful day with Jason, Garret and Steven on the charter boat named Hope. I learned so much from them. They never missed a beat, grabbing a net, baiting a hook or standing for pictures with your catch. Highly recommended!! Very nice guys.

Our family of six (Kids: 9, 7 and 3.5 twins) had an absolute blast with Jason and Garrett! The boat was very clean and well maintained, had a comfortable indoor cabin that we sat in while sailing from spot to spot to get out of the mist and rain. Fishing for silvers and halibut was incredible! Everyone, including the 3.5 yr olds, caught both salmon and halibut. We even caught some rockfish that Jason cooked up for some DELICIOUS fish tacos we all enjoyed next to the glacier. Sightseeing was great as well; seals, bald eagles, whales and landscape were all off the charts.

If you are looking for a small group or private charter experience this is the place!

Jason and Garrett were great guides showing us the best of Alaska’s wild coastal range. Jason piloted us into beautiful coves to capture waterfalls and glaciers, and we nailed most all of the birds and mammals to be seen. Jason put us on fish, and Garrett worked his magic in getting them on deck.
Great team great time on the water.

We had the most amazing trip on the Hope with Jason, Garrett and Steven. They were very knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife and the fishing. We got to visit with a mother humpback whale and her yearling calf for 5 minutes as they surfaced all around our boat over and over again. It was magical. The fishing also went well. It was a top notch day and we’d do it again and recommend them to anyone! Fantastic!

Had a fantastic day fishing with Alaska Coastal Explorer! Captain Jason & Garrett were so knowledgeable and helpful. They made us laugh a lot too. We had some great fishing, as well as some epic sightseeing. Whenever we saw something we were interested in, we never felt rushed. The boat itself was well cared for and well maintained. It had such a cozy feel to it. Would highly recommend Alaska Coastal Explorer!

I booked a trip with these guys during the summer. I have to admit, I was very impressed. Not only did we catch some beautiful 125 pounder Halibut, but the first mate (can't remember his name) was a riot! They know what they are doing and they have a good time doing it. Highly Recommend.

We all had a a really great day, from fin whales to humpbacks, sea otters ,stellar sea lions, and harbor seals. oh and the coast with such amazing glaciers and breathtaking views, up close and personal views of every thing and the Captain was very informative. Also loved the puffins! We had a nice lunch and dinner on Fox Island. Food was OK, not their for the food. it was a full Alaskan experience! And hope to go again

Have been coming to Alaska for the past 6 years and this was our first overnight trip. Our Capt Jason and Mate Jeff were great. Six wild women and lots of fish to catch. We got to see numerous Whales breach the water and some of the most beautiful scenery eyes could behold. Anchored in a calm and peaceful cove where crew severed up some great fresh fish tacos. With a peaceful sleep, began early am to fishing grounds, as we fished, crew served up a great hot breakfast. Limited out early so Capt Jason/Mate Jeff took their time on the return to allow us to enjoy the beauty of Alaska. We want to say we would encourage anyone to use this Charter for their fishing excursions. Top notch crew, equipment, and just being made to feel your experience is the best. Jason and Jeff, we could not have been made to feel at ease as you both made us feel, thank you.
