Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

This five hour small-group boating adventure starts when you board your comfortable 26-to-36 ft. enclosed vessel, with a party of no more than six people, and set sail along Stephens Passage.

Skippered by a US Coast Guard-licensed captain, you will be able to fish while enjoying the calm waters and stunning scenery of this incredible state. A snack will be served during the expedition, and your captain will encourage you to keep an eye out for whales, sea lions and eagles.

Those of you lucky enough to catch salmon your catch can be processed locally and shipped to your home for an additional charge, or cooked on board for dinner (limit one fish per person) - it's your choice.

Princess Cruises' Cook My Catch is our exclusive culinary experience highlighting the pinnacle of fresh seafood. Our chefs can cook and serve fish caught while on select fishing excursions in Alaska. Guests can choose their preferred preparation and accompaniments for their fresh-caught seafood. This unique dining experience is available onboard. Fish must be caught while on select Princess approved excursions and can be served for lunch or dinner - a unique way to enjoy your very own, wild Alaska seafood.

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. Please remember you are purchasing the opportunity to catch fish, not a guarantee of doing so. Fish runs are dependent on spawning seasons, so during May and late-September fish stock may be more limited. All safety equipment and fishing gear is provided.

A fishing license is required and can be purchased onboard your boat for $25 cash per person. When king salmon is targeted, a $15 per person additional retention tag is required. Children under 16 are not required to purchase a license.

Trolling with downriggers is the method of fishing used on this excursion. Generally, four rods are placed in holders and lines are lowered to specific depths. Participants do not hold the rods until fish are hooked. Fishermen then take the rod on a rotating basis to land their catch.

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
