Guided salmon and bottom fishing charter trips in the beautiful San Juan...

Guided salmon and bottom fishing charter trips in the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State. There is no way to describe the excitement of putting folks on their first king salmon, giant lingcod, or huge halibut. The smile is from ear to ear, you can almost see their hearts pounding through their chests, and their hands shake for an hour afterward in response to the adrenaline. The stories get told, and the memories last a life time.

Too bad there are only five stars, because our Highliner Charters experience was really first rate. Captain Brett knew all the right places to go, when to go there, and how to fish it. He runs a great business and has a passion for fishing. The boat and equipment were of the finest quality and were well maintained. Brett's mate,... More

Tyler and Jesse worked hard to get us on the fish on a rougher day. Their great attitudes and friendliness were highlights on a great day of fishing for our family. We definitely recommend Highliner and R and R to anyone looking for a fishing charter in Anacortes.

Brett Rosen, owner of Highliner Charters, took me, my husband,sister and brother-in-law out for an afternoon of halibut fishing. It had long been a bucket list item of mine to catch a halibut here in the San Juan Islands and it was my 30th wedding anniversary adventure. No pressure on Brett for sure. Our trip out to his secret spot... More

We went out on September 9th 2016 and had the best time of our lives. My father in law has had this on his "bucket list" for years and we decided to make it happen for him. The salmon were not biting buck captain Tyler suggested some bottom fishing, which turned out to be the best idea ever. Every person... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day fishing with Captain Rick. We caught several fish. Even though we couldn't keep them due to size and species regulations we still had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend highline charters!
