Incredible views, massive fish, and a professional and friendly captain may sound like a dream… but it’s real with Fantasea Charters!

Captain Keith invites you to join him on board his 32’ Uniflite, an offshore sportfishing vessel equipped with twin brand new Diesel D4 270 HP engines. She has a spacious deck and cabin and up to 6 anglers can fish in comfort and rest between epic hook-ups on board. There’s a full-head toilet, so you can remain comfortable on longer trips. Climb on the flybridge and you can spot top-feeding prey, as well as enjoy the gorgeous nature of Alaska.

The fish you’ll be going after are all-stars of the area. Huge Halibut lurk offshore, you can keep 2 of them, per person. Pink and Coho Salmon can be found in the bay as well as further offshore – get ready to battle these famous fish. You can expect to do trolling, as well as jigging, popping, and bottom fishing with light and heavy tackle.

You should arrive at the dock by 6:30 AM so you can cast off at 7 AM. You’ll set off for a 1 to 3-hour ride to the fishing grounds, during which you can enjoy the comforts of the boat and take in the view. A valid fishing license is required before you set foot on the boat, the captain recommends you buy it before your fishing date – just in case life throws you a curve ball, so you can still go fishing.

The captain will supply you with high-quality equipment, manufactured by Penn, Fin-Nor, and Shakespeare tackle. There’s no minimum age for kids on board and the captain will provide life jackets in all sizes.

Customers are recommended to bring some bottled water, adequate clothing, and a waterproof camera to take pictures of your trophy catch.

There is a special price for first responders, so feel free to contact the captain for more details!

Book a trip now to cast off on an unforgettable fishing adventure in the crystal waters of Alaska!
