Alaska Self-Guided, Unguided Fishing Packages

Self-guided packages let you fish and explore at your own pace and come and go as you please.

The protected waters of the inside passage provide the perfect opportunity for the do-it-yourselfer to safely pilot a boat and fish for king salmon, silvers, pinks, chum, halibut and rock fish. To further enhance your experience our 23′ Silver Streak boats are equipped with GPS chart plotters, fish finders and VHF radios so you can safely find your way while you’re fishing and sightseeing. We provide an orientation with helpful instruction on operating and fishing your boat safely and effectively.

If you are new to fishing this area, we recommend you fish with a charter guide.

FIRST DAY GUIDED FOR UNGUIDED FISHERMEN If you are not familiar with our area and local fishing techniques and would like more than a 1-hour crash course on the dock, you can sign up for a ½ day or full day guided fishing trip to get you started. Our licensed fishing guides will take you to the recent hot spots to jump start your fishing experience. This option is recommended for anyone new to fishing this area regardless of their skill level.

FULLY GUIDED SALT WATER SALMON & HALIBUT FISHING PACKAGES If you are an inexperienced boater or would just rather have a professional guide get you straight into some of the hottest salmon & halibut fishing Alaska has to offer then a fully guided fishing trip is for you. Packages include all top notch fishing equipment, bait and fuel – just bring a sack lunch. Our guided fishing trips are exclusive, which means your group will be the only people chartering the boat. Our guides are USCG licensed and registered with the State of Alaska.
