Once you set sail, Captain Alan shares insights about the region, adding an educational and engaging aspect to the halibut excursion.

Whether you choose a half-day or full-day charter, the thrill of the catch, coupled with the breathtaking scenery and professional guidance, makes halibut fishing in Alaska through our guided halibut tours an adventure to remember.

Know Your Catch

We find halibut in about 300ft of water. They are strong, aggressive fish and they put up a fight! It will be a fun battle to get one to the boat.

The halibut fishing technique involves “jigging” with the rod, which is fun for both seasoned anglers and those new to the fishing scene.

Once you catch the delicious fish, there are many different options for preparing halibut dishes. Halibut freezes well and can be prepared in multiple ways. These include seared, pan-grilled, and more in either tacos, bowls, sandwiches, or more. Halibut can be fried, grilled, blackened, or prepared in any way you want with different seasonings.

The fish is normally targeted in June through the rest of the summer. This is when they are most plentiful and there are more opportunities for your group to haul them in.
