Don't miss the fishing and gourmet lunch on the beach!
Booked with Princess for the cruise excursion. Capt. Beth Antonsen took great care of us and I cannot tell you how wonderful the meal was or how beautiful the scenery and beach areas were. All rain gear and boots were provided, so hardly had to carry a thing. We went bottom fishing and if you haven't done it before, don't worry they teach you and work hard so everyone got at least 1 fish. Some got many and Beth made sure that we released them safely back to the sea. She was also very knowledgeable about the area, great respect for the land and the sea, and told us a lot about Ketchikan. Hands down the best excursion in Ketchikan.
Best trip 7/5/18
Beth was our guide and she was so much fun. We had great conversation and she is extremely knowledgeable about the sport and the area. She is a Ketchikan native. We were super successful and caught an average of 3 fish each. Our catch then became our lunch. We pull up to a beach camp and Beth cleans and fillets our fish and there is a chef that prepares for us. The most delicious and fresh plate. Also came with a blueberry bread pudding that was incredible. I could have had second of that!
Such a fun day. I can’t express how much fun this was. We also fed the eagles our fish carcass. Incredible sight to see.
Baranof provides life jackets, rain gear and boots so you don’t get wet. We had the most beautiful, hot sunny day but the rain gear still came in handy for the ocean splash!!
