Fins & Grins Bottom Fishing

A great tour for all ages and ability levels! Bottom fishing is much more hands on – each fisherman handles his own rod and jigs for bottom fish at his own speed. We commonly catch flounder, rockfish, and sculpin. Halibut tours are available upon request. There are no peak seasons for bottom fish and all species are present in Southeast Alaskan waters year round.

Price $880.00 + tax for a 2.5 hour tour. Available upon request only.

Private Whale Watching Tour




“We had a great time fishing with Captain Bob and Ethan. They were knowledgeable, friendly, sincere, and were all about helping us fish. We caught a bunch of rockfish, a couple flounders and a Coho Salmon!”

Mike W.

“My son and I recently went out with Capt Mike and Ethan on a 1/2 day fishing excursion. They were great! We wasted no time getting to their favorite fishing locations and pulled in some Dolly Varden and one of the guys caught a 33″ King. Great time had by all. Thank you for the memories and we will be back!”

Linda A.

“When I say this was the best fishing trip EVER that is not coming from some landlubber since my husband and I have owned our own boats for over 35 years. [Our captain] was friendly, funny, accommodating and more importantly got us in to fish! My husband caught 7 and I caught 3 and the wildlife we saw up close and personal was amazing. Whales, eagles etc. I highly recommend them!”
