That is the question, and its hard to explain without coming across as disrespectful or boastful so we will do the best to keep it to the facts.
We go the extra mile, extra fast... Literally and figuratively. We pay hefty port fees to ensure we can provide direct access to pick you up & drop you off in the closest possible location to maximize your time on the water, making memories. From the handshake and greeting as you walk off the cruise ship, we hop aboard one of our premier enclosed cabin sport fishing boats equipped with new Yamaha engines, trolling motors, new rods and reels and private, enclosed private bathrooms.
Paired with industry leading equipment provided by industry leading companies like Gibbs Delta, Pelagic, Garmin, Seaguar and Mustad, we keep the fishing hot!!!
All our certified captains have the experience to teach you how to hook and help you land your Alaskan salmon or halibut—this trip of a lifetime it will be a memory you treasure for years to come. You do not need to be an expert to hook and land your own quality size fish. Many of our fishing guests haven't had the chance to go fishing EVER. Our captains will instruct you on adequately using the rods and reels and explain what to look for when the fish strikes.
Salmon fishing is best done in the ocean while trolling in conjunction with downriggers! The rods will be within arms reach and as the boat is motoring at a slow pace the fish will strike and you grab the rod and the fight begins! We occasionally run a "Top rod" which requires an active fisherman to be attending the rod in his or her hand.
Halibut & Rockfish are sometimes caught while trolling but the majority of the time we are on anchor, or at a slow drift while vertically jigging the rods with bait and lures at depths anywhere from 25-400'.
YES!! We help facilitate this with our local custom processing company. At a cost of $2.75 per pound for finished weight before S&H. It's cleaned, filleted, vacuum packed and flash frozen while being stored in a freezer until the date you would like it shipped to your home. FEDEX overnight priority is used.
We supply snacks and drinks onboard all of our vessels but you are welcome to bring your own lunch or request alcohol be onboard.
We encourage you to dress according to the weather of the day, especially if its due to rain. For weeks straight it might be sunny and 70s but with that being said it might be weeks straight of rain and 55-60s. Layers, and waterproofing are key!
All of our captains are USCG certified, CPR certified, and experienced. All of our vessels are equipped with an adequate amount of life jackets, and other safety equipment such as fire extinguishers, radios, first aid kits, etc.
We have other vessels on standby, and even float planes willing to render aid and ensure a safe and timely return to port.

We normally run private tours, however this year for the first time since 2019 we are going to be offering to help try and facilitate split/public trips for our cruise clientele.
If we are doing a split trip/public boat, the total cost of the tour would be split up per person, deposits need to be for the total amount of your portion. This keeps the tour going in case of emergency, or more likely someone getting too buzzed the night before and sleeping through their alarm clock. We don't want to have anyone disappointed!
All financial transactions will be handled after a complete group has been formed and recontacted to confirm. No commitment until everyone is confirmed.
Contact us directly to be added to the list. Please include email address and cell phone number, how many interested in being onboard, and what cruise ship name and date in port.
