Captain Paul met us right at the dock, literally steps from where we got off the ship. They were very clear that the fish were not really biting when we booked, but we booked anyway, fully warned. We caught salmon and then at the end...More

Caught lots of big fish! Great guide! Wonderful time! We were a group of 5 brothers and were on a cruise ship. This was one of the excursions offered and we were impressed with the knowledge and skill of our guide.

We went out with Captain Rick Dale last week and had a great time. If you are on a cruise port stop and want to go salmon fishing, you should make private arrangements with charter boat. It can save you a lot of money. Captain...More

Professional fishing experience from 3rd generation Alaska fishing family. Great time and great experience. Fun was had by the 4 people in our group. Best when shared with friends and you have enough time to fish the local conditions.
