Explore the unspoiled wilderness of Alaska’s coastline as you cast your line in exclusive Ketchikan fishing locations. Enjoy a remote and beautiful campsite where you can walk the secluded shoreline or venture through the rainforest filled with ancient cedars and spruce trees. Sip coffee and hot chocolate as you trade your “fish tales” around the cozy campfire while your chef prepares your freshly caught lunch. If you’re looking for Alaska cruise excursions off the beaten path, then you’ve found it here. You’ll have memories to last a lifetime on the Alaska Fishing & Wilderness Dining adventure!
Your adventure begins with pickup right at your cruise ship dock, then a short walk with the friendly guides to the gear center. You’ll be outfitted in true Alaskan style with waterproof boots, bib overalls, rain gear, hat, and gloves. Additionally, you’ll obtain your state-required fishing license before heading out to the boat. Departing from downtown Ketchikan, it’s just a 20-30 minute boat ride to prime fishing locations. There are many opportunities to spot eagles, seals, whales, and even spawning salmon and black bears in the fall. Excitement builds as you get ready for your saltwater bottom fishing, hunting for halibut, lingcod, rockfish, and more!
Never fished before? No problem! You are provided with quality fishing gear as our seasoned guides teach you the secrets of jigging, how to set the hook, and how to bring up your catch. With a limit of 6 guests per boat, your guide customizes the excursion to fit your interests and skill level. Once you’ve caught your lunch, it’s time to head to the remote campsite nestled in the lush rainforest! Watch the chef prepare your freshly caught meal, explore the stunning surroundings, or just cozy up next to the warm fire. Your gourmet meal includes your fresh catch atop bouillabaisse with potatoes, fire-baked fresh bread, and spicy rouille. Lastly, a signature dessert of blueberry and rhubarb bread pudding compliments this sumptuous lunch. While many Alaska cruise excursions include local food, none compare to this fresh gourmet meal! You’ll return back to town renewed from your exciting day of fishing, sightseeing, wildlife viewing, and true Alaskan dining. Don’t forget your camera, as you’ll want to capture many moments on this exclusive Alaska Fishing & Wilderness Dining experience!
