When you are traveling with your family there are few tours you can do that cater to both grandparents and kids while also managing to keep everyone interested. We offer the best Juneau Family Fishing Trips! Whether it’s watching grandad, mom or your kids battling a fish…the action will bring the entire family together. Our aim is to make your fishing day one of the best memories of you share together in Alaska!
We often say “we love taking families out”…because we honestly mean we LOVE it! Partaking in a kid’s curiosity (including all the questions!) is always great fun, and their enthusiasm for catching fish is hard to match (often so is ours as we cheer with you!). It’s especially interesting to see the the evolution of a kid not wanting to touch a fish, to being elbow deep in fish guts! Not only do we teach them how to fish, but involve them in the entire process as an opportunity to engage as much, or as little as they wish. Unsurprisingly, not all the fish we hook are landed and managing disappointment is an important life skill that kids naturally acquire on the boat.
We only book private trips so your family will never be mixed with anybody else. This means if you want to break from fishing at any point and switch to whale watching, we can easily do this. There are often many different inquires parents have regarding fishing/ being on a boat with kids, so the best way address your own particular concerns is to call me. Furthermore my wife Tanja is the “crew” and is especially good with assisting with children or older grandparents. Know that while I am captaining the boat along with organizing the fishing…Tanja is dedicated to keep everyone comfortable, happy, and has a high energy level that is absolutely contagious! Throughout your trip Tanja will take extra photos of your family to airdrop at the end of the day so that you have loads of awesome pictures to share, or frame later. We pride ourselves in making your day special so if there is anything “extra” needed please let us know what we can do!
