Cruise Line Charters

Captain Charlie netting fish for guest.

We provide salmon fishing to the following cruise lines:

You can book your reservation directly on-board your ship through the Shore Excursion department, though many people prefer to "prebook" their excursions before leaving home. Generally, our sportfishing excursion departs the cruise ship pier upon arrival of the ship or shortly thereafter.

A representative from the marina will meet you at the gangway of your ship and ride along with you (via motor coach) to the marina. Our representative will assign your boat and answer any questions you might have about Alaska, Ketchikan, and fishing. Upon arrival at the marina, you will be introduced to your skipper as you disembark the motor coach. From there, you will head to the boat, purchase your Alaska fishing license directly from the skipper, and depart for the fishing grounds of Clover Passage.
