Your representative will meet you where the shuttle drops you off in Ketchikan. Please proceed up the ramp and into the welcome center at the top. And take the Approx 20-minute shuttle into Ketchikan. The shuttle picks up on the far side of the center.
The captain will wait for the 2rd bus to arrive. The arrival of the 3rd bus is sometimes up to 45 minutes after the ship’s arrival. Therefore, shuttle guests not being on one of the first two shuttles may reduce fishing time.

Learn How to Fish

in ketchikan, alaska

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 will be a memory you will treasure for years to come. You do not need to be an expert to hook and land quality-size fish. Many of our fishing guests have never fished in the ocean. Some may have never been on a boat before. They will instruct you on adequately using the rods and reels and explain what to look for when the fish strikes.

  • Five of us went out with Captain Dan on July 12, 2023. It was a great trip that started with Dan and his boat meeting us right outside of our Princess ship. We booked the trip on our own without using ship sponsored excursions.We caught about 17 salmon that we kept and sent in for processing. Dan did a great job and we will use him again!

    It was a great short day of fishing. Captain Dan got us on the pinks and we limited out in a hurry. You can believe that if I go back to Alaska, I'll be fishing with him again.

  • We had a great time salmon fishing with Captain Dan. Thank you for a great experience for my hubby's 60th bday.


    Had a great trip for salmon. 4 people caught our limit (6 fish each) in a little over an hour. They met us at the dock and we were able to buy our licenses right on the boat. Dan was the captain and he knows his stuff. Would highly recommend.
