Serious about fishing? Looking for family fun? Perfect either way, this tour is customized for your interest and fishing skill level with just six guests per boat. The light tackle used ensures an exciting and rewarding effort to bring your catch aboard.
Gear up at the marina and board an open-air skiff. You'll glide into a breathtaking landscape of secluded locations, ideal for wildlife viewing and remote fishing. Spend the morning angling for numerous bottom fish species and whichever of the five Pacific salmon species are in season. Team effort brings your fish aboard. This is how you'll provide for the gourmet wilderness meal you're about to enjoy. Salmon, halibut, dungeness crab, kelp greenling, pelagic rockfish and at least fifty other species are potentially on the menu today.
The skiff heads back to shore and you'll relax around a crackling fire in a pretty wilderness location. Settle into the stillness of the rain forest among centuries-old spruce trees and fragrant cedars. A wilderness dining chef artfully cooks up your catch. Perhaps you will dine on bottom-fish served atop a saffron-infused bouillabaisse, or tasty salmon grilled over the fire in a method inspired by Alaska Native cuisine. Enjoy fire-warmed sourdough rolls, rhubarb-blueberry bread pudding and a steaming mug of coffee or hot chocolate. The five-star gourmet meal you've contributed to is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.Walk back to the ship equipped with true fish tales after a happy day.
