Our Captain was professional and an excellent guide. He took care of taking our fish for processing and shipping; it arrived on our doorstep exactly when we requested. Whenever we have it for dinner we reflect on our trip. Our family had a wonderful time!

Loved Josh (captain), getting to pray together, fish together, have holy conversations, beautiful weather and catch so many Hali's we had to decide which to keep and which to release! Love the new boat too!!

Cold, windy, raining day, fishing poor, but would certainly go with the same captain. A nice fellow and Heidi bakes excellent cookies which both my daughter and I enjoyed.

Josh and his boat are top notch. He was there to greet us and was anxious to get out on the boat which is a 2 minute walk from the cruise ship. The boat itself has a BATHROOM, nice indoor space and absolutely clean and organized. Josh provided drinks and snacks. After motoring for mabe and hour? to his secret... More

My buddies and I traveled to Ketchikan for a fishing trip we have been talking about for years. I started my search for a charter months in advance. Josh and Salty Sea Charters were the first site I came to and I stopped my search at that point. We had two of the best days of salmon and halibut fishing... More

Sorry about the cookies not being Ivy's, but I promise they weren't store bought! It was a great couple of days fishing with you and the guys. Tell Mike, it is okay for spraying me with the hose, just let me get my rain gear on next time:) I look forward to fishing with you again! More
