Emailed Chris and explained wanted our daughter to see Orcas in the wild and fishing if we have time. He usually works 6-2 but changed that for us. Boat was really comfortable. First thing we did was go directly to the Orcas. Chris said they are usually-there they are. Our daughter sat down and cried it was so moving for... More

Captain Chris was great from beginning to end! Very down to earth and answered all our land-lover questions :) Very knowledgeable and basically gave us the run of the San Juan!. Even suggested to break up the day by taking a breather at Friday Harbor. Oh and did i mention ALL the CRABS!! It was relaxing and fun and I... More

The whole operation is ship shape . . . belies Captain Chris' background as a navy pilot . . . great attention to detail . . . personable and sociable while also staying focused on the fact that we're fishing! Chris knows the channels, the islands, the currents, etc. and understands the many forces influencing a successful mission . .... More

Captain Chris gave us a first class fishing charter of the beautiful San Juan islands. Captain Chris made the trip fun for the entire family. Looking forward to a return trip.

We hired Chris for a buddy's bachelor party in early August 14. We were all anxious for the first part of the trip, but then the fish hit hard. The bachelor started the day with a 30 pound King and then the rest of us got 25's and under. Chris was a very adroit guide and fun guy. He has... More

We had a FAB experience fishing with Captain Chris this week. Thanks to his expertise, we did not leave empty handed. How about a 20 lb King salmon for a first time charter fishing experience! Amazing! It's obvious our host knows the local fishing hot spots. It was great to be out on the water seeing the local islands and... More

Good time with a laid back yet on top of his game captain. Lots of success on Kings while the whole fleet did not seem to be producing! Put my friends on fish and now they want to buy boats and go all the time. Would definitely go again and will recommend to friends!

Went out with Capt Chris for my friend's bachelor party fishing trip. At the end of the day there was more king salmon in the boat than I have ever seen outside of pike's place!

I was given a referral from another charter group since they couldn't take my wife and I. Their prices are on par with others but their service put the experience over the top!!

Had another fine trip with Captain Chris. Always an easy going event and always on the fish. He knows exactly where to go and is very persistent to get you a tight line. We were chasing a school of Pinks and he cut the motor to let us drift in front of the school. I was on the bow, and... More
