    Perfect for serious adventurers or families seeking a personalized tour, this excursion is customized for your interest and skill level with just five or six guests per boat. Light tackle is our specialty, which ensures that even average sized fish are exciting and rewarding to bring aboard.

    Your tour begins at a private downtown marina, where you are outfitted head to toe. You'll board an open-air boat and glide into a breathtaking landscape. Head out past the busy charter fishing areas and into secluded locations for wildlife viewing and remote fishing. With custom light tackle, you'll experience the thrill of angling for numerous Alaskan bottom fish species and whichever of the five species of Pacific salmon are in season. Depending on what salmon are running, and what technique has been working best lately, salmon fishing options are trolling, jigging, and mooching. Most folks catch fish - this excursion is renowned for the highest catch rate of any Alaska fishing experience.

    Your skiff then heads to a wilderness campsite where a crackling fire awaits. You'll settle into the stillness of the rainforest, rest on a beach log and breathe deeply among centuries-old spruce trees and fragrant cedars. You'll experience this outdoor culinary adventure as the camp cook blends homemade fish broth and delicately seasoned potatoes. You'll dine on your freshly caught bottom fish served atop a saffron-infused bouillabaisse, and savor fire-warmed sourdough rolls, signature rhubarb-blueberry bread pudding and steaming mugs of coffee or hot chocolate. It's no wonder Food & Wine magazine rated this ""The world's best camp meal ever."" If salmon are in season and your group managed to land a couple, our cooks will grill it fresh over the fire for a true Southeast Alaskan experience.

    Your tour concludes with a short walk back to the ship and memories of fish tales with friends old and new.

    Delve into the fascinating culture of the indigenous people of Southeast Alaska by visiting a replica village in the rainforest and paddling a canoe across a gorgeous mountain lake. more...

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a brief but scenic drive up the coast to Totem Bight State Historical Park, where you will become immersed in the culture of the Tlingit and Haida Indians of Southeast Alaska. Starting in the 1940s, they constructed a model village here in the rainforest to accurately present their customs and family life to visitors.


    As you wander through the village, you will see colorful, hand-carved totem poles and a large clan house similar to ones built in the early 19th century. These houses were the living quarters for several families of the same lineage. Personal effects were typically stored under removable floorboards, while food was hung from the rafters.


    The village offers a fascinating insight into the culture of the indigenous people, as will your experience on nearby Lake Harriet Hunt. Here, you will board a 37-foot canoe patterned after the ones that the Tlingit and Haida built. The lake provides a beautiful setting for your paddling adventure because the dense forest comes to the edge of the water.


    In time, you will disembark for a traditional Alaskan snack of smoked salmon. Then, you will have the opportunity to walk through an old-growth forest while your guide points out the most interesting flora and perhaps fauna. Afterwards, you will return to Ketchikan.

    Discover how the Alaska’s cold, nutrient-rich waters are ideal for growing oysters and kelp by touring a floating farm and then sampling both sustainable products.


    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy picturesque coastal drive along the Tongass Narrows to Bonfire Bay. From here, you will cruise to Clover Pass, all the while watching for humpback whales, seals and sea lions, which frequent these pristine waters. Be sure to look overhead too, as eagles are also abundant.


    Upon arriving at Hump Island Oyster Company’s oyster and kelp farm, you will tour the family-owned floating facility. The deep, nutrient-rich tidal waters of Bonfire Bay are ideal for farming oysters in trays suspended from cedar floats. The oysters are nurtured as they grow from thumbnail size to market size, and as you will discover it’s a fascinating process.


    The company is also the first in Alaska to grow kelp, another sustainable endeavor only possible because of the bay’s extraordinary water conditions. To delve even deeper into the challenges of aquaculture, you will tour the on-site laboratory.


    Still, there is no better way to understand how conditions affect oysters and kelp than to taste the final products. A sampling will reveal that the plump oysters have a unique briny flavor that finishes with a hint of melon. The kelp is used liberally in products such as salsa and seasonings.
