My family and I booked this excursion, Salmon fishing, through our cruise ship, Norwegian Pearl. My daughter and her husband had gone on this excursion 9 years ago and still talk about how much fun they had. Now I know why. Our guide/fisherman was Greg and he was terrific. Some of us had never fished before, I was one of... More

I did this excursion which I booked via Island Princess 2 times now (2014 & 2016). Both adventures were spectacular. Ever try to duplicate something that was the best ever...well it was even better than first time #BlackFlag #Ross we had a crew of 5 and all caught our maximum. Thanks Carol.

We came from Taiwan. We went on a cruise to Ketchikan in May 2016. Fortunately, the weather was very good for fishing. The scenery was beautiful. We were very excited about fishing king salmon. Captain Kevin, thank you. You gave me a memorable fishing experience.

Looked forward to this excursion for several months. Guide was perfectly nice but they overpack the boats. Five people fishing (some boats even had six) and only four poles. Realized we were fishing in a group, but felt that the person per pole ratio should have been disclosed. I wasted the precious few hours I had at this port. The... More

Absolutely not for families. The captain was rude to all of us and actually scared my daughter. He never offered us any type of refreshments. We asked about marine life and he told us it wasn't his job to point it out. He yelled at us when we accidentally crossed the fishing lines. We are very flexible, experienced travelers who... More

There were 31 people from our cruise on this shore excursion. We were out fishing for five hours. 31 people x 5 hours of fishing = 155 hours of fishing There were three (THREE!!!) S-A-L-M-O-N caught in our group of 31. Again three stinkin' fish. The prior day, we had gone whale watching, and a lifelong Alaskan told us there... More

I was in Ketchikan and fished with Jim in June and actually thought I had already posted this review. It is long overdue. If you are fishing in Ketchikan and searching for a guide, look no further. Captain Jim is your guide. I have used many fishing guides over the years and have only met one other that compares with... More

I have been able to fish twice with this outfit now. The first time was a half day for salmon that was made for someone that likes to catch fish. The trip was a blast and the skipper was an awesome human being that shared some of his experiences and made the whole thing seem like we were all family.... More
