Best Wilderness Charter Service In Ketchikan
Classic Alaska Charters has long been the sportsman’s best choice for affordable overnight Alaska fishing charters in Southeast Alaska’s Ketchikan and Misty Fiords National Monument Wilderness areas. Since 1990 we have demonstrated a consistent ability to satisfy our clients vacation goals above and beyond their expectations as we fish, cruise, and explore, the remote and unspoiled wild areas of Alaska’s Inside Passage. Captain Rob has lived, worked, fished, and played, in SE Alaska since 1984, beginning with the US Forest Service, and since with CAC. He has accrued more field exploration hours on the wilderness lands and protected waterways of the Misty Fjords area than any other charter guide. During the season he spends 24 hours a day with his clients and guests 5 days, 4 nights a week, every week!
Private Yacht Charters…Your Group Only
Enjoy a small ship cruise expedition aboard our 40’ charterboat, the Saltery C that is specifically designed for your group only of family and or friends. The trips are 5 days and 4 nights and designed for 4-6 persons with a wide variety of fully guided outdoor activities available to suit any experience level. On every adventure with us you’ll explore designated wilderness areas far from the cruise ship tourist scene, and away from those crowded fishing grounds close to town and around the corner from the big lodges.

A Federal Halibut Charter Permit
is required for guided guests to retain halibut while on charter. We at CAC have it! This is a new permit that was issued by NOAA Fisheries (NMFS) in Jan, 2011 and held by only those operators that fished for halibut in 2004, 2005, and 2008. CAC has been issued a “transferable” charter halibut permit, qualifying by having more than 15 logbook fishing trips during each of the required years.
