Dungeness Crab Charters in Ketchikan

Crabbing Experience

If you desire a true Alaskan experience at its best,  this trip allows everyone on board to fish for Dungeness Crab, using their personal crab trap. They will learn how to bait the trap, set and retrieve their personal crab ring. All gear and bait is provided and rubber gloves available for those who prefer them. Minimum is 8 passengers.  Fishing license is needed.

You will be whisked away right from your ship out to a secluded inlet, where the water is calm and no ocean swells. On the way you will enjoy a brief harbor tour, may see eagles and cross areas where whales, porpoise and other sea life often cross our path.

Guest will learn how to retrieve their trap, sort the catch, throwing the female and under 6.5 inch males back and keep the larger males (this keeps the crab resource abundant and does not damage the eco balance).

After fishing you then travel to a secluded anchorage where you will be shown how to clean the catch and you may actually do hands on if want to try and then cook the catch and have a crab feed on board.
