Alaska King Charter provides enjoyable fishing charters out of Alaska’s southernmost city - Ketchikan. A family owned and operated company, this is a place where tradition, exceptional service, and fun rule supreme. Come and enjoy the great outdoors in the remote saltwater regions of Alaska.

Choose the amount of time you want to spend on the water and get ready for an unbeatable team or family bonding experience. All Alaska King Charter’s trips are customized to the anglers on board, and whether you have fished before or not they will make sure you step off the boat with a great memory and a fishing tale to tell for years to come.

You will be fishing aboard a 28’ Hewes Craft boat that can take up to six guests plus the crew. Powered by twin Honda engines, the boat is perfectly suited to fish the local waters. It features a range of navigational and safety electronics to get you to the fish while staying in contact with the shore, and you will love its covered cabin area and enclosed toilet.

The main target species on your trip will be Alaska’s two most famous saltwater sport fish: Salmon and Halibut. While you have probably tasted Salmon before, after fishing in Ketchikan you will notice that the fish you find in the supermarket are missing two essential aspects: the chase and the taste. There’s nothing quite like bringing a huge King Salmon into the boat, and Alaska King Charters will teach you the best and most enjoyable ways of doing just that. And if you manage to hook a Halibut, you will quickly find out how this delicate-tasting fish is anything but delicate when you bring it into the boat. These monsters can reach up to 500 pounds - are you up for the challenge?

Alaska King Charter will supply you with all the gear you need to get the full Alaskan fishing experience. Just come suitably dressed for the weather and get ready for a trip to remember!
