Why Explore Alaska Charters?

Explore Alaska Charters is based in Ketchikan, Alaska, the “Salmon Capital of the World”. Ketchikan promises some of the most action-packed Alaska saltwater fishing for salmon and halibut in the world.

Ketchikan, Alaska offers tremendous variety and large numbers of fish. There are very few places in the world that provide such incredible freshwater and saltwater sport fishing in one location. You can fish salmon, and halibut one day, and then spend the next day fly fishing for salmon or trout in the Misty Fjords.


Another advantage Ketchikan has over other fishing destinations in Alaska is the fact that we have both inside protected waters, and outside ocean waters. As a result, we can always find a great place to fish. Ketchikan is located in Southern Southeast Alaska. Ketchikan is just a 1 hour and 40 min flight from Seattle, Washington. Ketchikan is serviced by Alaska Airlines, and Delta Airlines.

“Loved my trip to Alaska and can't wait to plan my next adventure! Rick had everything prepared for the fishing and boat side of it, and between him and his team, the house was perfect! Comfy beds, huge open kitchen, big living room with gorgeous views! I loved every minute of the trip and will definitely book with them again.”

“TRIP OF A LIFETIME! Rick exceeded our expectations. We killed ‘em and owe it to Rick. He knew how to get us on the fish and Make sure we had a great time. He was a complete professional, anticipated our needs, and worked hard to ensure we were successful. His boat and gear were a perfect setup and his knowledge of the area was exceptional.”

“Our self-guided group has used Explore Alaska Charters for 3 years now. We have stayed in both the 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom house and they are both very comfortable and quiet with beautiful views. The new boats are fantastic and nice to fish out of. The Collins family are great hosts and very helpful. Overall a wonderful experience. We will be back next year!”
