Take a narrated drive along the Tongass Narrows, learn about the history and lifestyle of Ketchikan from a seasoned and knowledgeable charter captain, snack on a seafood treat while you fish for wild Alaskan salmon-what better way to spend your time in the "Salmon Capital of the World!"
Located approximately 20 minutes from downtown Ketchikan, Knudson Cove Marina boasts a locale on prime fishing grounds. Because of its location, you will be only a few minutes from the dock before your lines hit the water. With only 4-6 passengers assigned to each fishing boat, the fleet offers you the chance for some truly individualized attention. Whether you're an experienced angler or a novice to the fishing world, your Coast Guard-licensed captain will treat you to a memorable excursion as he shows you the "ins" and "outs" of fishing in Alaska. In between reeling in your catch, you can marvel at the wildlife – seals, sea lions, otter, porpoise, and even whales might treat you to a show, while bald eagles will offer you a superb photo opportunity as they swoop down to grasp their own "catch of the day."
Minimum age to participate is 5 years old. Alaska State Law requires a valid one-day fishing license, which may be purchased for $20 cash from your fishing boat captain. During the King Salmon season, an additional $10 King Salmon stamp is also required. Your catch can be prepared locally and shipped to your home for an additional charge (US and Western Canadian addresses only). Credit card payment is required. We regret that fish cannot be stored on board the ship. No guarantees are made with respect to catching any fish.
