Wrangell, United States-port

One of Alaska’s oldest settlements, the fur trade brought Russian traders here in the early 1800s. The Americans established a military post in 1868 and named it Fort Wrangell. The town boomed during the great Gold Rush of the late 19th century and Wrangell sported gambling halls, dance halls, booze, and lawlessness. Today, commercial fishing and timber still are the mainstays for Wrangell’s economy. Explore nearby Stikine River home to hundreds of species of migrating birds, spectacular glacial valleys or watch the bears at Anan Falls rain forest.

Fishing the Inside Passage

Moderate Activity/Walking Regent Choice

Duration: 4 hours

Tour Code: WRG-002

Come enjoy a day of world class fishing in the abundant waters of the Pacific Ocean along the famed Inside Passage of Alaska. Experience spectacular scenery and protected nearby calm waters while fishing for a multitude of sought after species including salmon and halibut (Captains Choice for best chance to catch, depending on the season). The major difference with fishing in the Wrangell area is the customarily short distance to the fishing grounds.

Your experienced licensed Captain and guide will greet you on the pier and assist with obtaining your fishing license and any other needs. This exciting tour is geared not just for experienced anglers, but for first-timers as well. Once everyone is ready, you will board your fishing boat and set-off for the fishing grounds. A quick boat ride ensures that you will spend most of your time actually fishing rather than just getting there, and adventure awaits you the minute you arrive.

After approximately 4 hours of fishing enjoyment, you will head back to the pier, hopefully having hooked a big catch. Once there, your catch can be professionally processed and shipped to your home for an additional fee.

Please note: This tour includes 4 total hours on the boat. It is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair or those guests with mobility concerns, and may not be suitable for those who suffer from motion sickness. It is suggested that participants dress in layers and be prepared for rain and cool temperatures. The catching of any fish cannot be guaranteed. Beverages, fishing gear, tackle and bait are provided and license ($40) can be purchased on site for your convenience. Snacks and beverages are available on board.
