As others confirmed Josh is fantastic. He does a great job and you will NOT regret booking a tour with Salty Sea Charters. Very professionally all around with the booking and communication. He makes you feel comfortable and ensures you will have the best excursion possible. He is a hardworking young family man and I hope his business continues to... 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

Booked the charter about 60-days prior to arrival on a cruise ship for 3 people including my elderly mother (which Josh took good care of). The cruise ship was late on its arrival but Josh was there on the dock with a sign waiting on us as we disembarked (around 10am). His new boat was docked a short (100 yards+/-)... More

We were planning activities for our cruise stop in Ketchikan and wanted to do some salmon fishing. After finding Salty Sea Charters on Tripadvisor I called and spoke with Captain Josh and set up the half day charter for 4 of us on our Friday, June 3 stop at the port. I'd only done one other fishing charter and Josh... More

We were on a family reunion cruise and our last stop was in Ketchikan. We all wanted to do some salmon fishing. Since I was "THE TOUR DIRECTOR" I looked on line and found Salty Sea Charters. It was a wonderful FIND...I contacted the owner and told him what I was looking for and that there would be 6 adults.... More

My wife and I have booked many fishing charters from Alaska to Cabo and everywhere in between. We initially booked the trip for just the two of us (because there is nothing worse then paying a bunch of money to spend the day on a crowded boat) but ended up inviting another couple along. From the cruise ship my wife... More

We were cruising Alaska and decided to book our own charter for our go at King Salmon fishing. After finding Josh with Salty Sea Charters it was a no brainer to book with him. He was willing to talk to me over the phone and answer all of my questions, give me an overview of what to expect and clearly... More

4 of us had booked a day of salmon fishing with Josh Rose of Salty Sea Charters in Ketchikan as an excursion on our Alaskan cruise. We booked directly with him as I had researched and felt he was the No. 1 guy in Ketchikan based on reviews and his website. We were glad we did. His wife Ivy does... More
