Sitka sportfishing is one of Southeast Alaska's best-kept secrets. Sitka Sound offers an abundant supply of king, silver, chum and pink salmon. Combine this with dramatic views and opportunities to see marine wildlife, and you have an exciting excursion to experience. Your captain is licensed and is an experienced fisherman. All equipment, tackle, bait and rain gear are provided.
Note: Dress warmly and wear rubber-soled shoes or boots. Guests who suffer from motion sickness should take the appropriate medication in advance. Alaska State law requires a valid one-day fishing license, which can be purchased for US$20 cash from your fishing boat captain along with a US$10 cash king salmon stamp (during king season May-June). Four to six guests are placed per boat; six is the maximum number of guests allowed per boat. Guests should be able to walk up and down dock ramps with little assistance and be able to step aboard a bus and fishing boat with little assistance. Guests using a wheelchair who have high mobility may participate in this tour if accompanied by friends/family also participating; guests who are exceptionally heavy should only participate if they have high mobility—please advise tour operator of either circumstance in advance. Not suitable for young children. A catch is not guaranteed. Your catch can be processed locally and shipped home at an additional charge (US destinations only; credit card payment accepted). Your catch will not be allowed on board the ship.
