Alaska King Charter offers a variety of chartered Salmon and Halibut fishing packages out of Ketchikan, Alaska. Ketchikan is often one of the first stops for cruise ships and is also one of the best locations to fish for King Salmon and Halibut.

Ketchikan Cruise Ship Fishing Excursions

For those guests how hail from one of the cruise ship lines, the Alaska King Fishing Charter dock area is located nearby and within walking distance.

They offer a variety of packages that begin with their stop-over bookings, which offer four-hour Salmon fishing trips designed specifically to allow visitors to fish and get back on the boat. They also offer six-hour packages which are perfect for both the local visitor and those who arrive by cruise ship. If you are in port longer than a day, you have the option of booking a full day of Salmon and Halibut fishing from the charter. They do offer service to both those on cruise ships and those who are not.

Alaska King Fishing Charter runs two boats - a 26 footer and a 32 footer and can accommodate larger groups as needed.

The Fishing

The waters of the Inside Passage are a perfect habitat for Salmon, especially King Salmon. Where you find large numbers of Salmon you often find big Barn Door Halibut as well as the Chickens - those Halibut under 100-pounds.

One of the reasons that Ketchikan is an iconic Salmon fishing destination is because of the Inside Passage. The smaller baitfish gather here in these tranquil waters and that brings the salmon in droves.

Overall, expect an experienced crew, good equipment, and plenty of opportunity to Battle King Salmon.

  • Capt William and his son took great care of us. We were only 20 minuets from our Cruise Ship and started catching fish right away. I would highly recommend.
