Your chances of catching an incredible King Salmon or a trophy-size Rainbow Trout will be greatly increased? by booking the services of Alaska fishing charters or tour guides. They know the waters, the location of the fish, and the best strategies for catching them. So, if you're planning an upcoming fishing trip to Alaska, keep reading for an overview of some of the best fishing tour companies in the state.

Puffin Alaska Fishing Charters

Puffin Fishing Charters focuses on both fishing and incredible natural sights. Their areas include Nuka Bay, Resurrection Bay, the Kenai Fjords National Park, Prince William Sound and the renowned Montague Island.

The company has 23 years of experience in chartered fishing and prides itself on its fast fishing boats, top of the line equipment and quality personalized service. Puffin specializes in halibut, salmon, lingcod and rockfish sport fishing.

Alaska NW Charters and the Caledonia

Recently featured in National Geographic magazine, this highly personalized charter company offers 5-star luxury dining aboard a private yacht for eight. The crew includes a fishing guide, naturalist, hostess and captain - all available to serve and ensure that you and your group have the Alaskan experience of a lifetime.

One of the biggest misconceptions about a private yacht charter is that it's prohibitively expensive. But, what most travelers don't realize is that the cost of chartering a private yacht, including crew, is typically the same as booking cabins aboard a cruise ship - only you don't have to share with 2000 other passengers or pay extra for off-shore activities.

Saltwater Safari

With affordable rates for most anglers and a strong focus on halibut and salmon deep-sea fishing, Saltwater Safari has built a reputation on experience, quality and value. Their rates range from $200 to $325 for the half day to full day, and they also offer private group bookings.

When calculating your total price, don't forget to add the cost of meals, fishing licenses and fish freezing or processing. Like most Alaska fishing companies, the company does provide filleting, bait and tackle free of charge.

When it comes to Alaska fishing charters, you have hundreds of choices. So, the three companies above simply represent a cross-section of what's available, but there are still a lot of choices out there. If you don't use one of those referenced here, look for one that has strong customer testimonialsBusiness Management Articles, a solid catch track record and an experienced crew.?
