Our Charter Fishing excursion is our extremely customizable private, Alaska fishing charters excursion. You’ll easily find our friendly guide waiting for you with a sign-banner outside the Icy Strait Cannery entrance. From there, we take short ride to Hoonah City Harbor. You will walk down the dock and board one of our fishing vessels. The ride to the fishing grounds provide some time to learn about the modern ways Alaskans fish and take in the scenery. One of the great characteristics about Icy Strait is we won’t be fishing with a crowd!. We’ll brief you on boat safety, outfit you with gear, and give you the opportunity to purchase a fishing license on board.
