Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do we need to bring our own fishing gear for our Charter?
Not at all. Outbound Alaska Charters has all the fishing gear needed onboard each charter boat. Our fishing equipment is all top of the line with salmon combinations made up of G-Loomis rods fitted with Diawa line counter reels. Halibut setups match All Star Rods with Shimano reels both in single and two speed.
Q. What kind of wildlife can we possibly expect to see?
One of the great things about fishing in Alaska is the scenery and the wildlife. The waters around Sitka are rich with an array of different wildlife. Definitely bring your camera! We commonly encounter whales and porpoise quite often, and there are many eagles in the Sitka area near the shoreline. We occasionally will see brown bear and blacktail deer on many trips on remote stretches of beach, and there are many sea lions, sea otters, harbor seals in Southeast Alaska.
Q. What is there to do in Sitka BESIDES fishing?
There are alot of interesting things to do in Sitka, Alaska. There are a couple of museums you can visit, and there is great shopping outlets all through the town. Also, there are some really good restaurants in Sitka. Whale Park was built in 1995, and offers "whale watching" from the boardwalk, during late fall and early spring months. Sitka is a very picturesque Alaska city, with a lot of great photo opportunities.
Q. I have a ten year old boy who would I like to take on his first charter fishing trip. Is that possible?
We can take children on charter trips. As a safety precaution, we have children wearing a lifevest at all times, especially when out on deck. Please check with us for more information about children, and ages.
Q. Can we pay for our trip using a credit card ?
Yes. Currently, Outbound Alaska Charters takes Master Card and Visa. We do not accept American Express.
