Ketchikan is known as the Salmon Capital of the World for a reason. After meeting your representative on the pier, 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 and any additional stamps you may want, as you head to the nearby sheltered waters. 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, pursuing the king, silver, pink, and chum salmon runs that abound in the sheltered waters of Clover Passage.
Glimpses of our local mammals and birds - whales, seals, sea otter, porpoise, sea lions - may also be on the agenda; don't be surprised when a majestic bald eagle swoops down near your boat, fishing for its own catch of the day and allowing you a stellar photo opportunity.
All fishing gear, tackle and bait is included. Mandatory fishing licenses and, if desired, king salmon tags are purchased directly from your captain. We ask that you please wear deck or rubber-soled shoes and dress warmly in layers. Make sure the top layer is waterproof. You may choose to catch and release all day, or have your catch processed and shipped home for an additional fee.
