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

Enormous halibut, rockfish, and all 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 open-air decks with outdoor fireplaces 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 lower-deck bunkroom with shared bath
  • 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 and a spy ship before serving in the US Coast Guard 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 home your catch 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.

Ketchikan, Alaska: Salmon Capital of the World

It's worth it to extend your trip and spend a few days in Ketchikan. In addition to its status as the "Salmon Capital of the World" for its abundant schools of the pink, green, and silvery fish, the woodsy town harbors a diverse group of other wildlife. Black and brown bears are common sightings in nearby parks and recreation areas as well as mountain goats, moose, and wolves. Mink and river otter can sometimes be spotted along Ketchikan's beaches, and orca and humpback whales inhabit the coastal waters during the summer months. The town is also a gateway to the Misty Fjords National Monument, where you can see saltwater fjords and cliffs that soar 3,000 feet into the air.
