Exclusive Skiff Fishing and Fresh Catch Wilderness Dining
Authentic Ketchikan Skiff Fishing Experience
This is why you came to Alaska - to experience an authentic fishing excursion in the unspoiled wilderness of Alaska's southeastern coastline. Your catch then becomes the centerpiece of a gourmet campsite meal.
Once you are outfitted head to toe, board an open-air skiff and glide into a breathtaking landscape. Your experienced tour guide leads you to secluded locations for wildlife viewing and remote fishing in Ketchikan. Perfect for serious adventurers or families seeking a personalized tour, this Ketchikan shore excursion is customized to fit your interest and skill level. Everyone has their own rod and tackle and may experience the thrill of salmon fishing and bottom fishing and the exhilaration of landing salmon, rockfish, red snapper, lingcod or one of our specialties, Pacific halibut.
Your skiff then heads to a wilderness campsite where a crackling fire awaits. Settle into the stillness of the rainforest, rest on a beach log and breathe deeply among centuries-old spruce trees and fragrant cedars. Experience this outdoor culinary adventure as you watch the camp cook sumptuous saffron-infused bouillabaisse with Yukon Gold potatoes, anchored by the fresh taste of your morning catch, and accompanied by fire-baked fresh bread with a garlicky aioli and spicy rouille. Savor signature blueberry and rhubarb cobbler and steaming mugs of hot chocolate. By day's end you are swapping fish tales with friends old and new, content with the experience of a uniquely Alaskan way of life.
This Ketchikan port tour experience is very exclusive with a guide ratio of 1 to 4 passengers, making it ideal for families, small groups, or those looking to escape the crowds.

I had the time of my life, our captain was awesome and he got us onto fish right away and between 3 of us we caught 4 cod, 2 spined rockfish, 2 halibut, a dog shark and a ratfish (very ugly). The shore lunch we had halibut and rockfish... I have never had a better meal... better than any 5 star restaurant!!! I highly recommend this!!!

The excursion was one of the best days of our cruise. The boat launch was just around the corner from the cruise dock, and the staff and our skipper were very helpful getting us in our gear. The fishing was great, we caught some coho and rockfish. The wilderness camp is amazing. I would do this excursion again anytime.
We had an amazing time. We not only caught fish but saw whales, eagles, sea lions and starfish. The campfire picnic was absolutely delicious and the staff super friendly!!!

Took my wife halibut fishing and we had a blast ! We caught rockcod and some halibut. My wife got the biggest one ! Then on the way to the secluded island to clean and prepare our fish, we encountered a pod of orcas that swam right along side our boat . Very cool .
