Our fishing charter trips are for parties of 2 - 6 people. Trip lengths range from 4-8 hours depending on which trip is chosen. We operate two charter vessels which provides greater flexibility and allows us to book larger parties.  Both vessels offer heated cabins and bathroom facilities on board. Parties of 4 or more are guaranteed a private charter.

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!
