We were in Ketchikan as part of a cruise to celebrate our 50th Anniversary and I arranged all of the shore excursions for our family of 17 which included 9 children! Captain Mike was very enthusiastic from my first phone call to him on through to my family on their outing. Unfortunately it was not a good day for halibut and our group had to practice some patience but it was still a good experience to see exactly how this type of deep sea fishing is done. They were rewarded when they tried salmon fishing during the second half of their outing which was very exciting for them! I cannot recommend this experience high enough if you will be visiting Alaska....it is a REAL experience, not some choreographed tour made up especially for cruise ship passengers which is something you will run into in Alaska or in any ship port. Fishing is the real deal and the thrill will not be long forgotten! We are still enjoying the 30 pounds of salmon that we had shipped home from our two fishing groups.
