Fish your wish on this fun and fish-filled day that begins with a 30-minute motorcoach ride to the harbor, just enough time to glimpse Juneau's lovely scenery as you travel along Gastineau Channel's tidelands. Say ahoy to your crew, and board a fishing boat in your small group of up to six guests for a fun adventure. Set off, and within 20 minutes you'll be out of the harbor and wetting your line. This area is well stocked with a variety of fish, from flounder, sole and cod to herring and rockfish, and you'll be working your rod the whole time. Before you know it, you'll likely have a bite! You can choose to hook and release or have your catch processed locally to ship home (an additional charge).
Special Notes:Minimum age is 4. Rubber-soled or deck shoes must be worn on the boat. Bring appropriate outdoor clothing. Boats will carry a maximum of 6 guests. Catching fish is very likely but not guaranteed. All safety equipment and fishing gear is provided.
A fishing license is required and can be purchased from the tour operator for $15 cash per person and $15 for a king salmon stamp, when required. Children under 16 are not required to purchase a license.
Your catch can be processed and shipped home for an additional charge as arranged by the tour operator. Because of its perishable nature and U.S. Customs regulations, your catch may not be sent outside of the United States in most cases. Due to federal regulations, your catch may not be stored onboard your cruise ship, but may be prepared for dinner onboard.
Provided: Fishing gear, rain jacket
Snack: Smoked salmon samples, cheese, crackers, water
Unaccompanied Minor Policy: Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
