Ketchikan Customized Fishing Excursion

Ketchikan Customized Fishing Excursion

Welcome to the most exclusive tour of Ketchikan's world-renowned waters. Instead of taking a tour with a set itinerary, charter your own private, open-air skiff with a professional guide and let us take you where you want to go.

With a limited time in port, you want to make the most of every moment. By offering personalized trips, we allow you to focus on what makes Alaska magical to you. We know the area, and you know your interests.

Together, we will create the journey of a lifetime.

Our professional guides know their 17-million-acre backyard, and they can't wait to share it with you. Would you like to help your daughter reel in a halibut? He knows just the spot. Are you hoping to see an eagles' nest, or hike to a clearing to photograph a magnificent waterfall?

Our capable guides will show you the hidden gems of Ketchikan's waterways. Let them help you catch the best fish in the world, pull up so you can explore private coves and beaches, or circle one of the thousands of small islands that grace our wilderness neighborhood.

We gladly accommodate families with children, and small groups. Need more than one skiff? Our guides are pleased to travel in groups to allow you to share time together on the water.

Your options include:

Angler's Choice- Alaska's glacially carved underwater valleys and mesas hold a myriad of fish species. Spend the day jigging, mooching, or trolling for halibut, cod, or one of 37 species of rockfish. We can also target ocean bright pink, chum, silver, and king salmon when in season

Halibut-Each spring scores of halibut migrate from the open Pacific to coastal Alaskan waters for the summer. These colossal flatfish skim the ocean floor, stopping at favored ambush points to gorge themselves on unsuspecting squid, octopus, and herring that move with the dramatic currents and tides. Your knowledgeable and experienced guide will take you to where the halibut lurk

Crabbing- Our objective will be to catch Dungeness crabs. However, as you spend the day as an average Alaskan, you will find that there is so much more to the experience. Beachcombing, fishing, and exploring Alaska's wildlife and glacially carved landscape are a few of the options you will have during your personal and customized tour
