Our Packages


Salmon Fishing

Salmon has become one of the most popular seafood selections at restaurants and grocery stores, thanks in part to the rise in commercial fish farming. Yet what’s missing from the salmon found in your local bistro or market are two things – the chase and the taste.

Not only is the thrill of the catch an experience you’ll never forget, nothing in the world matches the rich, flavorful taste of wild-caught salmon – whether King, Silver or other species. It’s all waiting for you here in the “Salmon Capital of the World.”


Halibut Fishing

The Pacific Halibut is the largest flatfish in the world, known for its sweet, delicate flavor. But don’t let its refined taste fool you. This is one aggressive fish and when hooked on a line will give you a battle to remember.

These monsters of the deep can weigh up to 500 pounds, though average catches run from 30 to 60 pounds – more than enough for great eating and unforgettable stories!

What Our Customers Have to Say

"Stop looking elsewhere! I am the type of read all the reviews and the best deals before I spend my money. This trip is hands down blew every expectation I had out of the water! William (our captain) made our Alaska trip exceptional. He picked us ip 10 steps from the boat and whisked us away for the time of our lives! William took us directly to a spot where we couldn't even get our line all the way down before the fish were on our hook. And DON'T waste your money on the cruise ship excursions...William watches the time to make sure you are back on the boat while he takes your fish to be processed for you."

I had the pleasure of spending 2 days aboard Captain Williams boat. The boat was spacious and perfect for the 4 of us. Will was patient and took the time to educate us after we booted the first few fish day 1. A couple hours in we were pulling in salmon one after another. Day 2 started slow but Will assured us “Don’t worry, we’ll find them.” He didn’t disappoint with that promise. Another day coming back with full coolers. I recommend anyone traveling to Ketchikan to seek out this great Captain. Getting to know him over 2 days was one of the highlights of the trip."."
