About This Excursion

Increase your enjoyment as well as your chances of catching the world-famous Alaskan wild salmon in uncrowded comfort! All Captains are local, long-experienced, licensed Alaskan State Fishing Guides. All boats have heated cabins and bathrooms.

Your half-day adventure begins when you’re picked up at the cruise ship pier. Your skipper, who has 20+ years experience fishing the famous waters around Juneau, will take you out in his 6-passenger boat to where both the fishing and sightseeing are excellent.

Your guide is well-acquainted with the whereabouts of the local fish population and his boat– which features a heated, enclosed cabin and restroom facilities–is outfitted with the perfect equipment for serious fishing. Of course, we’ll supply all of the tackle for this awesome expedition.

The captain says “Fish in May and June for king salmon, July and August for pinks, August and September for coho, June and July for chums!”

IMPORTANT NOTE: April 15 to June 14, king salmon retention is prohibited, king salmon may not be retained or possessed; any king salmon caught must be released immediately and returned to the water unharmed.
