Your adventure starts here With the About Me!


I have been on the dock for the last 20 years and live right here in Ketchikan since 1996, helping the vacationing guest get to where they need to be at the right time and back. For the last eight of these years, my job has been in the charter fishing area.

The leading company is owner-operated & incorporated in 1992. They have been taking cruise ship guests out charter fishing since the beginning. We have many captains that are very knowledgeable with many years of fishing experience. 

So let us take the worry away. 

I believe I have covered all the answers to every question's That any guest asks me over the years on this page.

Read thru the sections below to understand how this works.
