We offer several types of Halibut and Salmon Fishing Charters for cruise ship passengers as well as our clients who are flying into Ketchikan. Most of our fishing trips are “private”, meaning that only your family or group will be on the boat. This allows us to tailor the trip to what you want, without conflicting interests. We want your fishing experience in Ketchikan to be the best it can be.

My family and I came in on the Disney Wonder. Capt. Moore kept great communication and picked us up at the dock. A short walk to the boat, a short ride out and my family was laughing and catching. The Captain's patience with my family was fantastic. He taught, we caught and had a fantastic day. Thanks Captain Moore!

Captain Clayton was awesome! He had patience and took time to explain how and why he was having us try different fishing techniques. He was as excited as we were when we got a bite. When we actually caught and reeled in our fish which included halibut and we were lucky enough to catch a beautiful king salmon, he was... More

I hate to write this, but I rely so heavily on others' experiences for booking excursions. THE GOOD: We came in on a cruise ship that only had about 7 hours in port. We were about a half hour late docking and he was there waiting for us. We left right off the same dock as the cruise ship. He... More

*****, thank you for the fair and honest review. Please extend my apologies to ****** for being short with her. It is difficult to field many questions while you are running at full speed trying to avoid logs, whales, and other boats. As well, that drive time allows me to work a plan based upon our ship's schedule, current, tide... More

I have been on multiple fishing trips, Cabo, Gulf Of Mexico, Hawaii, and Alaska, this by far was one of my all time favorites. Captain was energetic and wanted to make sure you enjoyed your time and did everything to make sure you caught fish you were there to target and then some. went the extra mile to make sure... More

Clayton was a great captain and did his best to provide our group with a memorable experience in Alaska. He took the time to get us into some great fishing areas, not just those spots that were close to town and the cruise ships. He thoughtfully had smoked salmon ready for us as a mid-day snack and it was excellent... More

This fishing trip was one of the highlights of our Alaska vacation. We got to the fishing area in n a reasonable amount of time and in a half day caught over 100 pounds of salmon. We also got to see a school of Orcas quite close to the boat. The snacks that the captain served were excellent. All in... More

I cannot say enough about Bella Misty. I never fished halibut before and Clayton took me out three days in a row from Ketchikan. I am still in awe from the experience.

Clayton took 6 of out on his charter boat (5 fishing). He had put one down rigger out and was rigging a second one when my grandson hooked and landed a pink on the first down rigger. We were catching pinks and silvers almost as fast as the down riggers were out. We had a half day scheduled, but we... More

We arrived on the NCL SUN in Ketchikan at 7am. Captain Moore was waiting on us at the cruise dock and it was a short walk to his boat. We had 3 adults and our 4 year old daughter. The boat is very nice and is equipped with a head (bathroom). He had snacks and drinks on board. His wife... More
