      Special comments

      Our guides fish with their 4 & 5 year olds often and love it. Children may require additional help with holding the pole and reeling in fish. For senior anglers, consider your mobility of stepping in/out of the boat and reeling in fish from deep depths.

      You will first travel to a private marina and be outfitted with everything you need – full rain gear, wool socks, boots, hat and gloves. You'll be issued a one-day Alaska fishing license (an additional purchase of $20). And within 15 minutes, you're ready to go.

      You'll travel through the inlets and bays around Ketchikan on a 19-foot open-air skiff. When you reach the fishing grounds, the captain will show you how to jig for rockfish, cod, and possibly Pacific halibut at depths of up to 300 feet. These are some of the top fish in the area. After a few bottom-fishing basics, you're ready to do battle. Your expert guides know every trick there is to catching prize halibut, rockfish and cod at depths of 100-300 feet. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for bald eagles, humpback whales, and porpoises on this tour.

      These beasts can weigh in at 20 or 30 pounds, but brutes of 50 and even 100 pounds have been hauled into the boat. If you snag one in a particularly ornery mood, you're going to need every bit of strength to reel it in. 

      You’ll then come ashore and head to the remote campsite, where we'll get a fire and some coffee going while the day's catch is prepared for our chef's signature bouillabaisse (served over Yukon gold potatoes, with the best blueberry-rhubarb bread pudding for dessert). Swap fish stories by the fire while your top catch is cleaned and filleted. There’s plenty of things to do in your free time; experience the old-growth rainforest or take a walk along the rocky beach.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 48 hours of requested services.
