Fish for Salmon, Halibut, and Rock Crabs Onboard a Luxury Yacht

Enormous halibut, rockfish, and five species of salmon make their home in the waters off the coast of Ketchikan, Alaska. You can cast out for a trophy catch on this 5-night fishing cruise for one aboard The Modoc, a 146-foot yacht. It has an open-air deck with an outdoor fireplace and a hot tub, as well as a large dining room serving gourmet meals that feature each day's catch. The fishing cruise includes:

  • Ground transportation to and from Ketchikan International Airport (KTN)
  • 5 nights in a luxury stateroom with a private bathroom
  • Daily fishing excursions
  • Gourmet meals prepared by an executive chef
  • All of the fish you catch will be filleted by the staff, vacuum sealed, and flash-frozen in airline-approved boxes for you to take home.

We've listed some trip highlights below. Click here for more information and a packing list.

Historic yacht

Before it was remodeled into a luxury fishing yacht, The Modoc was a WWII rescue tugboat in the South Pacific, a spy ship, and then a US Coast Guard vessel for more than 20 years.

Guided fishing excursions

You'll spend 8–10 hours fishing each day with the guidance of experienced anglers. On a typical day, you'll cast out for salmon, halibut, lingcod, and rockfish and throw out traps for rock crab and jumbo shrimp. You can then choose to bring your catch home in airline-approved boxes or dress it up in a suit and strap it into the seat next to you.

Gourmet meals

The ship's executive chef prepares three gourmet meals each day that feature fresh fish and seafood, such as steamed rock crab.


When you're not fishing, there's still plenty else to do. Borrow a kayak to explore the chilly waters or head to the shore to walk through the area's picturesque hiking trails. You might even spot orcas, humpback whales, harbor seals, or sea lions.
