Chris Baldwin Admiral - captain- general manager

The story of Chris Baldwin is a tale of two seasons.  For the first decade, Baranof’s guides were hired and managed by the owner.  With his brother AJ providing expert opinion on an applicant’s abilities, Chuck was able to man the boats with experienced captains.  Over time, however, our operation grew to a point where a lead guide, in charge of managing and acting as an advocate for our crew, was required to ensure a quality experience for our guests.  Enter Chris Baldwin.  During the summer months, you’ll find him in the thick of things, expertly managing every aspect of our aquatic and sportfishing endeavors.  In the offseason, he lays the framework for the following year as general manager; while he’s difficult to keep off the water, his administrative duties are vital to improving the customer experience.
