“Halibut Fishing and Whale watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

Hitime Charters provided my friends and I with the greatest experience every!! We caught our limit on halibut and saw so many sea lions and whale. Every time the captain, Teri, got us to a spot and we dropped, we had halibut on in minutes. It was, by far, one of the greatest fishing charters that I have ever been on!!! I highly recommend Hitime Charters to anyone that wants a great fishing experience while visiting Juneau!!!!

“High times with HiTime Charters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2012

Chartered with Toni for a full day of halibut and salmon. Highly recommend this boat and knowledgeable Captain for anyone who wants personalized attention, and a trip suited just for them. Toni and Nani know how to get the job done and make every effort to ensure your trip is memorable. Enough cannot be said about the excellent experience. I hope it's not a once in a lifetime trip for me, but if it is, I can be satisfied with the memories I have of this outstanding professional, charter!

“Fishing Again With Hitime!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

Booked a charter with Hitime early May 2012. Toni was the Captain to take us out on the initial

schedule,but sadly she was not available upon arrival due to other commitments she had

made with her other schedule and stand in Captain, Ben Olson.

The good news was that Ben, her other Captain, was available and although we were

somewhat late on arrival, Ben came to the rescue not only as a stand in Captain for Toni, but

also to pick us up at the dock even though we were late to fish that morning.

We fished a full day in the end, caught 8 large Chum Salmon, 4 reasonable size Halibut, 5

Pink Salmon and 1 beautiful size Sockeye Salmon along with some Turbot and Cod.

We also got to see the Whales, lots of them, feeding, jumping, and playing in Auke Bay..

A great time, good weather, and good fishing with whales to view along the way...

No complaints...thanks again guys, just sorry we couldn't see Toni again and not sure though

if we'll be back in the area as this was our second trip..and Alaska is a good distance from


the only negative thing was the confusion with us and the Captain (Toni) regarding the time

we were

suppose to meet for our charter that was arranged almost 90 days in advance..We arrived, by

10 AM, no Captain, no Boat, and no Call from the Captain, but the Captain thought we should

have called her and we had thought since we booked the whole day we were good to go...all

ok in the end though..make sure you call the Captain before the day you fish....even if you

have given a 50% deposit for your charter and arrive by 8AM or you could end up like us,

sitting and waiting on the pier for the Captain and the Boat.

“2 old ladies combined fishing and whale watching trip. Was much more !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2012

We chartered Hitime after being "Shoved off" or, refered to them in early Spring 2012. I don't really remember who we first spoke to in the late summer of 2011 (When I first started planning this trip). To make a long story short....we were able to book a charter with Hitime. Fisherwoman was in contact with Cpt. Toni and the trip came together. We are 2 old ladies, in our 50's, out of shape, one of us loves to fish, both of us love nature. That was about all the info Toni had about us.The info we had about Hitime was what we saw on her website. Eitherway it didn't matter. It all seemed to fit...Fishing and whale watching in a safe way.
As fate would have it...we lucked out!! Capt. Toni has a very exprienced deckhand, Nani A very mature and lovely younglady. We also had the honor of having 2 co-captains...Moe and Ellie. Moe made sure that we stayed balanced as she held down the couch. Ellie made sure that I stayed warm as she got on my lap as often as I sat down in the cabin. She seemed to know that I am a little old lady that needs lots of love and warmth!!
There were lots of whales...the fisherwoman caught fish...some they called "Trash" (Arrowtooth Flounder). A few that got away. We are going home with a couple of Salmon and a Halibut. Nothing that we can find in our neck of the woods!
I am going away with much more! Thank you Toni and Nani, and Moe and Ellie!

“Fished on June 19, 2012... did well...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

We fished a full day Salmon and Halibut charter with Captain Toni abourd the HiTime on June 19, 2012. Toni was unavailable that day and she had Captain Ben Olson run her boat for us. Ben was great. In the morning, he put us on 3 fat Chum Salmon, unfortunately we struck out on the kings that morning. (We did miss 2 strikes because we were distracted by the beautiful scenery... One of those strikes could have been that King we were waiting for.) We fished at one point with in view of the Mendenhal Glacier. We saw a Humpback Whale and few Eagles. The setting was spectacular. Then Ben took us out farther in the afternoon to fish for Halibut. We dropped down and got bit pretty quickly. The 4 of us caught and released 6 Halibut in a couple hours. Ben was pleasant to fish with and so was his deck hand Nally. Captain Toni runs a great business. She is available for you and always courteous when you want to ask questions while your planning your trip...
