If you're looking to go charter fishing in Ketchikan, and want a more personal trip that is tailored towards you and your group; you came to the right charter fishing company!

Oasis Alaska Charters only runs private charters; that way, you will only be fishing with your friends and family. Our staff and crew have years of experience in fishing the beautiful Ketchikan Alaska waters.

We're not like a lot of the other charter fishing in Ketchikan companies that offer halibut and salmon fishing around Ketchikan Alaska. We take great pride in what we do and not just the bottom line. We don’t just take you out charter fishing because we can, we’re passionate about what we do and will work hard to give you the best trip possible with the amount of time you have.
