  • Do you have beginners on your fishing trips?

    Yes, every fishing charter is suitable for the experienced fisherman and novice alike. Our helpful Captain and crew will equip you with the instructions needed in landing any fish.

  • How do you ensure safety on the fishing trip?

    A thorough safety speech is conducted by the Captain before even leaving the dock. He will point out all the safety equipment including life jackets, exit doors and will inform you of the plan of action should any situation arise while out at sea. Captain and crew are all First Aid and CPR certified and will often point out any medical personnel present.

  • What happens if I get sea sick?

    It’s a long day on the water and we won’t return to the docks early. If you are susceptible to sea sickness, we highly recommend taking motion sickness medicine such as bonine or dramamine. In order for the medicine to take full affect, you must take it that morning or night before. If you are extra sensitive, we suggest you contact your medical physician for a stronger prescription. Dramamine is for sale in the charter office.

  • Is alcohol permitted aboard?

    Beer and wine is okay and we ask that you bring cans instead of glass. We enforce a no hard alcohol policy. Keep in mind this is a moving vessel and safety is our top priority, we want you to enjoy yourself please drink responsibly.

  • How far offshore do you go?

    Depending on the target species, we travel 1-2.5 hours each way.

  • Are there a bathrooms on the catamaran?

    Yes, there is one “head” on board. All nautical toilets are made for human waste, only. Any other items, including all paper goes in the trash.

  • What happens if the weather is bad?

    It is at the Captains discretion to evaluation the weather should that be of concern. We try to be considerate of everyone’s time and when we can, will make the judgment call the night before the charter. If we need to cancel due to weather or any mechanical reasons, we will refund you what you have paid for the charter. We will not, however, be able to refund you money you have spent on fishing license, and hotel arrangements for the charter. If this poses a concern, we highly recommend seeking out trip insurance. We understand fishing is a highly anticipated event but safety is our top priority. Weather is unpredictable and we use our experience, tools, and knowledge to make the most informed decision in canceling. It’s blue skies in Seward, why would we cancel? Looks can be deceiving! While Seward may be sunny and blue skies, our fishing grounds are located beyond the protected waters of Resurrection bay. We travel hours into the open ocean where the weather systems can be completely different. The Captain knows best.

  • Will I see other wildlife while on the trip?

    Yes! You will be fishing in some of Alaska’s most bountiful waters and can count on seeing an array of wildlife such as: Steller sea lions, seals humpack whales, orcas, occasional minke whale, Dall’s Porpoise. Also seabirds such as; frigates, puffins, commorates, eiders, kittiwakes, and if you are keeping a sharp eye while we are cruising near the cliffs you may even see Dall sheep and Alaskan mountain goats- and maybe even black bear!
