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).  Parties of 4 or more are guaranteed a private charter. The size of your party will determine which boat you will be on. Both vessels offer heated cabins and bathroom facilities on board.

We are currently booking king and coho salmon trips.  We offer a 10% discount for active duty military and their dependents, or those with a reserve or retired military ID card.  Keep reading for trip descriptions and pricing.

Our king season starts July 1st and runs until the end of October. We will run 2 trips per day July and August, and 1 trip per day September and October.   The rate for these trips will be $195 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 $155.

One day fishing licenses can be purchased from us for $10.50. This rate applies to both resident and non-resident alike.


Private all day salmon charters (4 people or less), are available.  The rate is $1365 and you make your own schedule.  


We take a minimum of 2 guests and a maximum of 6.  When 4 or more guests are booked from the same party we guarantee a private charter. (Please note that under any situation, all booked guests pay the full rate regardless the number in the party, their age, or desire to fish).


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!
