Fishing Trips in Alaska's Inside Passage
Alaska’s Inside Passage is an angler’s delight with protected waterways minimizing ocean swells and maximizing catches of halibut and salmon. As professional outdoor guides experienced in our deep knowledge of the waterways of Alaska’s Inside Passage, Alaska Boat Cruises offers our summer guests the option of fishing for halibut, all 5 species of salmon, rockfish, and more as part of their luxury cruise experience in Alaska. In addition, we also offer 4 to 5-day private fishing charters on the Inside Passage available from June to August on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We host our anglers, from beginners to experts, on the M/V Alaskan Harvest floating lodge – by night – and use hi-tech day boats (approximately 30 and 33 feet) for our fishing by day. This arrangement allows our guest fisherman to fish in the more remote bays, sounds, and straights of the Inside Passage near Sitka, Juneau, and Petersburg and find the top fishing spots while still being in close proximity to our luxury yacht, the M/V Alaskan Harvest.
With more time for fishing, quiet anchorages in remote settings each evening, and world-class lodging and dining, you’ll enjoy an unparalleled Alaska fishing experience. Whether you enjoy fishing in Alaska for big halibut, trolling for King Salmon or tackle fishing or fly fishing for silvers, we’ve got you covered at Alaska Boat Cruises!
Private Fishing Charters on the Inside Passage
We offer 5 night/4 day charters aboard the 80ft. Alaskan Harvest in conjunction with Outbound Alaskan Charters. This will be your anchored lodge, offering excellent fishing in the outlying areas of Sitka Alaska, with the finest fishing just minutes away from the mothership. Spend more time fishing with no competition and comfortable accommodations, with less time spent going to and from mediocre fishing grounds.
Your group of 1-10 people will fish off of 2-3, 33 ft. cabin cruisers with qualified captains who know the local waters. Both boats include heated cabins and bathrooms, with the latest safety and navigational equipment. In the late afternoon, you will go back to the Mothership for an evening of relaxation with your group and fine seafood cuisine.
Alaska King & Coho Salmon fishing is nothing short of spectacular. Sitka is often referred to as Southeast Alaska’s “King Capital” for having the region's highest king catch rates year in and year out. During the summer months schools of hungry king salmon move near the shore from their wintering grounds in the North Pacific. Here they feed on never-ending schools of baitfish, in preparation for their eventual migration to their stream of origin. Hard fighting, tasty, and in the prime of their lives, King salmon range from 15 to 65 lbs.
