Saltwater Excursions Fishing Charters is based out of Wittier Alaska. Whittier is in the Chugach National Forest and at the head of Passage Canal off of Blackstone Bay. Getting here is fairly easy as it is about 1.5-hour drive from Anchorage. Plan on a 2-3 drive time due to the Anton Memorial Tunnel which is only every hour for 15 minutes per direction. As complicated as that sounds, getting to Wittier is pretty easy. If you have time, you can stop at the Portage Glacier.

Fishing with Saltwater Excursions Fishing Charters

This is a salt water fishing charter, and they target big Halibut and Salmon. Guests fish from the Saltwater Addiction which is a 26-foot with a heated cabin, marine head, and even a place to lie down. Expect a comfortable boat stocked with all of the best equipment, including Loomis Rods.

Guests of the Charter have three fishing options. You can choose from a full day of Halibut fishing, a full day of combo fishing - Halibut and Salmon, or a full day of Salmon fishing.

The charter sails at 7 am and gets back to the dock around 5-6 pm. This is Prince William Sound, and these waters are a haven for Halibut and Salmon. Much of these waters are sheltered, still, and cold. They are full of nutrients which draw in the Smolt and the bait fish. Those are partially what bring in the Salmon and Halibut. The Salmon come here to feed and rest before they migrate up the local rivers to spawn. The Halibut come to feed on the bait fish and the Salmon. Both offer big Trophy targets.

Overall, you should expect a very professional crew, qualified and licensed captains, and helpful and skilled deck hands.
