Whale Watching at Icy Strait Point

Halibut Fishing

Board a cabin cruiser and embark on the ultimate fishing excursion to the rich waters of Icy Strait.

After receiving a safety orientation, it's an approximate 20-30 minute ride to the fishing grounds, where you will have approximately 2.5 hours of fishing. The waters of Icy Strait are nutrient rich, making conditions ideal for angling. The Icy Strait region is also known for its abundant marine life, so be sure to bring your camera and plenty of film for once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities. Chances for catching fish are good, however not guaranteed.

Minimum age to participate is 6 years old; children under 13 years old are required to wear a life vest while onboard the vessel. Deck or rubber soled shoes must be worn on the boat. Bring warm layered, waterproof clothing. Alaska State Law requires a valid one-day fishing license, which may be purchased for $20 before the start of your tour. Custom packing is available for an additional fee. If you land a fish and choose not to release it immediately you are responsible for processing and shipping the fish home. Please read and understand the information provided by the tour operator before catching any fish. Shipping is not available outside the US. We regret that fish cannot be stored on board the ship.

Duration: Approximately 3.5 hours
