Great Day on the water. Contracted with a company for a private sightseeing, whale watching, fishing charter for my family of seven. Ended up with a different company so think my reservation was transferred. Due to COVID , wanted to just have our small family group and if we wanted to change what we were doing we could. Our charter with Alaska Costal Explorer was great. It was a little misty when we started out and I was concerned that the day would be miserable. It did clear off but was a little cold out on the water. We were dressed for the weather and had blankets with us so we were fine. Our boat had an indoor cabin so we could be inside if we wanted. Jason the Captain made sure that we had a successful trip. We went by some amazing rock formations, saw marine animals, and a magnificent glacier. The part of the trip that was the best was the fishing. We caught 6 salmon and our limit of Black rockfish within 45 minutes of fishing. The mate Garret was great with my 7 year old granddaughter. He made sure that she was safe but helped her catch fish which really made her day. Everyone went home with fish stories. Garret fileted the fish for us and then helped my son get the fish to the packer to send it home. We think about our great fishing trip every time we have the fish.

My husband and I had an amazing day with Jason and Garett- we did the full day Fish & Fjord tour. There were only 5 guests on board. It was an incredible day with catching both rock fish and halibut, plus we saw lots of wildlife and glaciers! Our favorite day in Alaska - highly recommend if you’re in Seward, AK!

An absolutely amazing experience! Some folks on the tour were there for the fishing, and others were there for the sightseeing...and everyone enjoyed both. Jason and Garrett were both very welcoming, helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. You can see that they really take pride in their work and go the extra mile to make sure the guests have a good time. We got to see some incredible wildlife, glaciers and rock formations and also reeled in a ton of fish. Jason let us film with our GoPro and drone and helped us get some great footage. A truly incredible experience that I highly recommend. Worth every penny, and if I come back to Alaska, I will make the trek to Seward just to do another trip with Alaska Coastal Explorer.
