A 6-hour excursion geared at landing a halibut
Fish for halibut in Ketchikan with this specialty fishing charter! These challenging fish are great for the experienced angler, but our captain and crew are excited to help new fishers learn the halibut fishing’s ins and outs. This trip allows one halibut per person (limit regulations), and all boats must carry the permit to fish for this species, so if everyone on the ship catches their limit, we can fish for salmon if time permits!
We are US Coast Guard certified to carry a maximum of six guests per charter boat. With limited space per vessel, all seats are sold on an individual basis. We have group discounts available — Call 1-907-225-7291 for details and book early.
It’s not worth catching the big fish if you can’t get it home and show it off. With our help, your “bragging rights” are safe. Through our friends at Cedars Lodge, for an additional cost, your fish can be professionally filleted, processed, vacuum-sealed, and shipped right to your home, arriving on any day you select! Fire up the grill and invite the neighbors to eat what you caught on your Alaskan adventure!
Please know Fish & Game regulations sometimes change.
Both state and federal regulations may have emergency orders in place concerning size, limit, or catch & release.
Licenses may be purchased online here before your trip or on the vessel on the day of your trip for cash only.
We transport your fish to FedEx, where they ship the catch via their overnight service. The cost of shipping depends on location and the weight of the fish and not governed by Ketchikan Charter Boats.
We will meet you at your ship or as close as we are permitted. Look for our large bright yellow sign “Ketchikan Charter Boats,” and we’ll have a list of the last names of the guests we are meeting. Most hotels offer courtesy shuttles. Please arrive 15 minutes before the departure time for your Ketchikan halibut fishing charter.
