Indulge your senses with the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness during this relaxing fishing excursion, and a seafood lunch prepared al fresco.
After being outfitted with weather-appropriate outdoor gear, you will board an open-air skiff with your guide and depart the harbor in Ketchikan for an authentic fishing excursion on Alaska's southeastern coast. Depending on the season, the tides and even the day, you will be taken to secluded locations for an intimate look at Alaska's wildlife and pristine wilderness.
Local fish and game professionals give this tour their highest ratings for delivering a true Alaskan wilderness experience for serious adventurers and families seeking a personalized tour. With only four passengers per boat, your guides will customize this excursion to fit your interests and skill level.
Upon arrival at your fishing site, you will receive your rod and tackle, and begin jigging for rockfish, red snapper, ling cod or halibut. Your catch will eventually become the entrée in your gourmet campsite meal.
Following your fishing session, your skiff will take you to our wilderness campsite for an outdoor culinary adventure. As a crackling fire blazes in the stillness of the rainforest's centuries-old spruce trees and fragrant cedars, you will dine on your freshly-caught fish served atop a saffron-infused, bouillabaisse-inspired stew (no shellfish). Your entrée will be served, accompanied by fire-warmed sourdough rolls with a garlicky aioli, rhubarb-blueberry bread pudding, and steaming mugs of coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
At the conclusion of your tour, you will be transferred back to the pier.
