Our fishing charter trips are for parties of 2 - 6 people. Trip lengths range from 5 - 8 hours depending on which trip is chosen. We operate two charter vessels which provides greater flexibility and allows us to book larger parties (greater than 6). The size of your party will determine which boat you will be on. Both vessels offer heated cabins and bathroom facilities on board. We offer a 10% military discount for active duty and their dependents, or those with a reserve or retired military ID card.

We're currently fishing for blackmouth (resident chinook).  The season is from December 1st to April 30th. Trips depart at first light and last 8 hours, and the rate is $200 per person.

Our halibut season is in May.  WDFW gives us only 11 days in that month to fish for halibut.  We will run 2 trips per day and the rate will be $200 per person.

Our lingcod season begins May 1st and runs until June 15th.  We will fish lingcod on all non-halibut days.  The trips will last 5 hours and the rate will be $185 per person.

Our king season runs from July 1st until the end of October.  We offer 2 trips a day July and August.  Trips will depart at first light and 2pm and last 7- 8 hours. The rate for these trips is $200 per person.

Our coho trips begin September 1st and run through the first week of October.  Trip lengths are 5 hours and the rate is $175.

Private charters:

1- 4 people: $800

6 people: $1140

Private all day salmon charters are available for the rate of $1640. This allows you to determine your own departure and return times.   


Singles will be added to an existing charter. So for you guys or gals who like to fish but can't find friends or family to come along, give us a shout and we'll likely fit you in.

We do offer inter-island service. The location we are currently fishing will determine the pick up and drop off fee.  Please call as we can arrange pick-ups at most docks within the Islands.


We will fillet and bag your fish and, if you're an out-of-area customer, I'll help you arrange to have your catch professionally packaged, frozen and shipped to your home.  You can even request all or part of your salmon be smoked. Please inquire about this service!
