Tour Details

After meeting your representative, a short walk will take you to your waiting fishing boat which holds no more than 6 guests. The fleet of boats used range in size from 28' to 40' in length and have a very basic head.

Setting out from Ketchikan, your crew will get you set up with your fishing license as you head out to deep waters. Halibut are the largest of all the flatfishes. Some halibut exceed 400 pounds and are usually on or near the bottom at depths of 90 to 900 feet. Enjoy the hospitality of your experienced, Coast Guard-licensed captain who will relish the opportunity to show you, your family, and your friends the breathtaking beauty of Ketchikan from our "local viewpoint" - on the water.

Glimpses of our local mammals and birds - whales, seals, sea otter, porpoise, sea lions - may also be on the agenda so keep your eyes open.

All fishing gear, tackle and bait is included. You may choose to catch and release all day, or have your catch processed and shipped home for an additional fee.

Please Note: The current daily bag limit in the Ketchikan area is 1 halibut under 43 inches, or 1 halibut over 80 inches per person per day. Any halibut over 43 inches up to 80 inches must be released. The current bag limit is subject to change and is regulated by the IPHC. Once all guests have caught a halibut, if time allows, the captain will reposition to a salmon fishing location. Mandatory fishing licenses and king salmon tags must be purchased directly from your captain on the charter vessel on the day of your tour. All customers must bring $25 US in cash to purchase a fishing license and $15 US in cash to purchase a king salmon tag from the captain in order to participate. King salmon availability varies, from May 1st to July 1st. The purchase of the king stamp is a requirement if you are fishing for king salmon. If the king stamp is not required you will not have to get one (From July 2st to September 30th). Not having the King Stamp purchased before the fishing trip means you will not be able to keep a king salmon if caught. Please see the Alaska Department of Fish and Game website for current retention regulations for non-resident charter fishing. All guests ages 16 and older must have a license.
