Alaska Fishing (6 hours)
Anyone can put a line in the water, but it takes special skill to catch Alaskan salmon, halibut, and bottom fish. After spending most of their lives unraveling the mysteries of Alaska fishing, your experienced fishing guide has all the skills you need to catch fish. What's more, they're ready to spend the day teaching you what they know. As fishing conditions change with the seasons and the weather, the Alaskan fishing expedition allows you to head out during any of the summer months with confidence that you will see good action. Your captain will only fish for those species that have been producing the most in recent weeks. During the peak of the summer season from June 15th to August 15th you will have the best chance at catching multiple species.
Hunting for Halibut (6-8 hours)
Board the custom designed 24 ft. Raider Cabin Cruiser and experience what many anglers dream of when planning an Alaskan vacation, fishing for Pacific Halibut. Imagine catching your first wild halibut with your friends or family and the bragging rights that will come with sharing this delectable fish back home. No matter your skill level, you will fish like a local with a halibut rod and reel in your hands, working the sandy flats, drifting with the current and jigging in waters as deep as 300 feet. Spend the day with an experienced Alaskan guide in pursuit of the elusive halibut, learning the secrets of fishing circle hooks, working the tides, and the excitement of battling your leviathan.
Alaska Fishing & Wilderness Dining (6-8 hours)
Experience an authentic fishing excursion in the unspoiled wilderness of Alaska’s coastline. You’ll be outfitted with waterproof boots, bib overalls, hooded jacket, hat and gloves. Then, glide into a breathtaking landscape aboard a stable, custom built, 19 ft Raider skiff. Cast a line, and what you catch will become the fresh center of a gourmet campsite meal! With only five guests per boat, your professional guide customizes the excursion to fit your interests and skill level. Along the way, guests often see seals, eagles, whales, birds, porpoise, spawning salmon, and even bears. With quality fishing gear, hone your skills landing a variety of rockfish, cod, or Pacific halibut. After fishing, the skiff heads to a remote wilderness campsite, where a crackling fire awaits in the rain forest of ancient cedars and spruce. Here, you’ll enjoy a gourmet meal of your own freshly caught fish, served atop a saffron-infused, bouillabaisse-inspired stew (no shellfish). Savor sourdough rolls with garlic-aioli spread, a signature rhubarb and blueberry bread pudding, and steaming mugs of coffee or hot chocolate. You’ll leave having experienced the Alaskan way of life.
