We were on a cruise and we booked a charter for 4 of us while we were in port in Ketechan with True Alaskan Charters We were met at the dock by Capt. Bruce and taken to the boat that would take us out. Our opinion of our captain was that he was there just to put his time in and go home. There were no snacks of any kind on the boat as advertised in their ad ( not that we expected any thing grand) but nothing. It took him a half hour to fill out the fishing licenses, another 25 minutes to get out to where we would fish( said he couldn't go fast as it caused a wake.....as other boats went flying past. He put down the lines and we drifted around and he changed lures once in that time. I know there's no quarantee that you willl catch fish and we caught nothing, but we just expected more for $600. About 20 minutes before our 4 hours were up,he pulled in all the lines, said we were all done and we were back to the dock in 15 minutes that took us 25 to go out. I've read all the other reviews about how the other captains took that extra minute to show their clients some of the sights that make Alaska unique, maybe Capt. Bruce should be a little pickier on the people he employes. I also called Cassia about our charter, she returned my call the first time, but never returned my call when I called her back or the e-mail I sent her, another disappointment. I guess you live and learn. I would't recommend this charter as I wouldn't want anyone else to be as disappointed as we were, not the fact we didn't get any fish but by the service.
