As we embark on our 5th season, we emerge as the best charter halibut fishing business in Haines. For the 2019 charter season, our “menu of adventures has changed” in order to best serve our visitors and local guests. Please take a moment to check out this page in order to familiarize yourself with our charter fishing, sightseeing, package and transportation offerings for 2019.
New for 2019, the “Peggy Sue” will embark daily for a single I Fish Haines Alaska charter fishing adventure. This will give us the ability to be more flexible about our departure time should the weather interfere with our plans. The goal is to catch fish and not be concerned about getting back to port for a second scheduled afternoon charter. All our 2019 full day charters will provide lunch – as well as all the gear, bait and snacks you’ll need to help you have fun and catch fish. Here’s the line up that you’ll find when you click GO FISH
Our “I Fish for Cruisers – AM & PM” charters will become I Fish for Cruisers & Friends – a full day charter fishing adventure – every Wednesday starting on May 1. Anyone, up to 6 guests, can book a full day of great fishing. $360 per person
Many of our groups ask about private charters reserved just for themselves. I Fish Haines Alaska has answered that call by offering our 6 hour full day charter two ways:
A Great Day of Fishing – PRIVATE 6 – may be booked by parties of 5 -6 guests any day of the season. Priced at $1800 for a private, exclusive group charter
A Great Day of Fishing – PRIVATE 4 may be booked by parties of up to 4 guests, any day of the season except on Wednesdays. $1440 for a private group charter, 1-4 guests
Our Great Day of Fishing – WELCOME ABOARD – JOIN A GROUP is a full day charter fishing activity that is open to groups of any size (1-6 guests) for booking on Sundays in June, July and August and on select dates throughout the season. The “Peggy Sue” accommodates 6 guests @ $360 per guest.
All of our 2019 I Fish charters provide snacks, all the bait and gear you need. For those days when it’s safe to go out in the rain, we’ve got rain ponchos too. Be sure to purchase your Alaska Fishing License in advance.
BUT WAIT… What happened to those popular half day charters? The Good Day of Fishing is back, for a minimum of 2 guests, starting on Wednesdays in May, then available any day of the season from May 23. At $199 per person, the only thing better than a Good Day of Fishing is a Great Day of Fishing.
Sightseeing with Peggy Sue – Our private 4 hour sightseeing excursion, embarking at 6 PM, in the Lynn Canal may be booked any day for up to 6 guests. We are happy to arrange a Dinner Cruise with advance noticed. Dinner will be priced accordingly. Experience the beauty of Alaska for just $499 per cruise.
Riding with Peggy Sue – Based on availability, the “Peggy Sue” may be reserved for transportation services throughout the Lynn Canal.
