Relax and unwind on Sitka's beautiful coastal waters during this half-day salmon-fishing excursion.
Depart the pier with your guide aboard a comfortable, fully-equipped, 24-27-foot cabin cruiser. The cabins are heated, and equipped with curtained marine heads, or port-a-potties, located in the V-berth. Fishing will be performed via trolling by downrigger, the most common practice on sport-fishing excursions. Rods will be placed in holders and lowered to specific depths. After the fish have been hooked, participants will take the rod on a rotating basis in order to land the fish.
If you wish, your catch can be processed locally and shipped to your home for an additional charge (only U.S. dollars and credit cards will be accepted). Regretfully, we are not allowed to store your fish on board the ship, but can prepare your catch for dinner.
During your 3-hour fishing session, all necessary equipment, bait, tackle, rain gear, light snacks, and beverages will be provided. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be returned to the pier.
Please note: Each boat will accommodate up to six guests. There is no outside seating, only 2 benches inside the cabin. This tour includes approximately 3 hours of actual fishing time. Rubber-soled or deck shoes must be worn on the boat. Dress warmly in layers. Bring cash for your fishing license ($20 for the one-day, non-resident license, and an additional $10 for the required king salmon tag during king salmon season). Guests subject to seasickness should take proper precautions.
