Although our 4-hour charters are available, most people enjoy staying for an entire full day. The day will begin with us picking you up at a designated area and taking you out to fish. Once the adventure at sea is over, we will drop you off with your catch.

There are fresh Alaskan Salmon available throughout the season. There are primarily four different types of salmon that we charter for: King, Silver, Sockeye, and Pink. The most infamous salmon is the Alaskan King Salmon, and like most restaurants will charge you top dollar to cook someone else's fish, here at Ketchikan Salmon Charter you can catch your own salmon and have it on your plate!

This is the experience many travelers dream about when planning a trip to Alaska: fishing for the largest flatfish in the world: the Pacific Halibut. Catch your very own halibut and have it brought back to you to share with your friends. Halibut fishing is available with 6-hour charter only.

Halibut fishing

We really enjoyed our fishing excursion with William. He only took us out for halibut fishing as the salmon fishing wasn't good. Caught halibut, rock fish, cod. Would highly recommend him. Was very personable and wandered the boat talking to each of us.
