Ketchikan Best of Alaska Fishing Tour

Excursion Overview

A Southeast Alaskan fishing adventure not to be missed!

Seek out the best fishing in town with your experienced fishing guide. Learn and practice the secrets of using a flasher, a hoochie, or a jig to lure in your catch. Based on the tide and time of year, your guide will have you trolling for King, Coho, Pink Salmon, and halibut.

Meet your guide at your pier as they whisk you over to the marina and outfitting area. The team will collect the state fee for your fishing license on the day of your tour. Then it's time to gear up in the provided waterproof boots, bib overalls, hooded jackets, hats, and gloves.

Once aboard your skiff, head out to the fishing grounds just South of Ketchikan. Keep a lookout for local wildlife on the journey before spending the next several hours fishing. Delight in the absolute thrill of fighting your fish, netting it, and bringing it home to enjoy.

Please note that each boat (skiff) can hold up to 4-5 guests - multiple skiffs will depart at the selected departure time
