“Best Time Fishing”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

This was a huge highlight of our trip. I took my 17 year old daughter and I on Grants boat. Not only does the boat have great fishing gear, it's an awesome catamaran. Grant was really outgoing and fun. He made us feel really comfortable. We caught to really nice fish too. Ted, our 87 year old other fishing partner caught a big fish. The weather was great, btr if it's rainy the boat would be great too. Don't miss this. Tracey Arm was nice but this was way better if you are trying to plan your day.

“great way to spend the afternoon!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

we were in Juneau for the day with no plans - just happened to walk into a tourist info center and was able to book an afternoon charter for 4 with Capt Annette and Wyatt out of Auke Bay. We caught our limit of big halibut along with a cod and a fre rockfish within a couple of hours! The boat and crew were perfect! scenery was awesome too! Snacks and soda,water were provided and there is a bathroom on board. Fish were cleaned, taken to Jerry's for shipping and they arrived the following week frozen and cryo-sealed. Hope to return next year for a two-day charter for halibut,salmon,cod,rockfish!

“Greatest whale watching trip possible! :)”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

29 July 2012 is a day which we will never forget aboard the Eclipse with Capt Grant at the helm. From the very start of our journey being shuttled to and from our cruise ship, we were given an excellent tour of the town of Juneau by the driver. Capt Grant gave us an equally outstanding whale watching tour. Started off by seeing sea lions hanging out on a buoy and then cruised around past a beautiful view of a glacier. We started to see a few whales in the distance waiving their tales several times for quite a while out of the water when about 6 Dall Porpoise came playing all around our boat and then swam off with the whales. As we were moving along admiring the scenery, suddenly 7 humpback whales started bubble net feeding right in front of us. They did this seven times. How awesome is that. What a show! We highly recomend anyone and everyone to have Grantly Moore take you on a whale watching tour.

“Wonderful trip!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

My family and I enjoyed our trip with Moore's Charters on the Eclipse and with Annette (?) and Wyatt.  They gave us a memorable trip and lots of personal attention!  Although we didn't catch a lot of fish, we were awarded with the experience of seeing the whales "bubble net feed" which was absolutely amazing!  They allowed us to combine a whale watching trip with fishing and got to see stellar sea lions as well.  Having just my family on the boat made for a very special trip for us and Annette made sure we got to do and see everything we wanted to.  It was great!

“"Moore" than you could ask for!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We had a plane trip cancel due to weather after arriving in Juneau on a cruise ship. My husband got Grant's name from one of the booths on the docks and arranged to charter his boat. I was lamenting not being able to see any glaciers and he said that he could take us to spot to view Mendhall glacier as well as whale watch. My husband wanted to go fishing - we did all three )saw whale up close and personal - much closer than the cruise ship). We had a great time with Grant and his mate (Wesley, I believe), they were knowledgable and just generaly great to spend time with. The boat was very clean and comfortable and had great views from inside (it was very cold that day). 1/2 day was about $550 (we had the boat to ourselves)

Grant is obviously very proud of his state and even took the time to stop by Mendenhall Glacier Park so we could get a close up look on the way back to town.
