Check our calendar for best timing of activities during the summer.
Aboard the Saltery “C” your home base moves with you throughout the week, plying the pristine waterways and bays of Misty Fiords or the productive fishing grounds off Cape Chacon on Prince of Wales Islands southern tip, and there you are, after a busy day of fishing , whale and/or bear watching, setting and pulling crab n shrimp pots, we anchor in a secluded cove, calm as can be, nestled at the base of forested mountains, waterfalls and wildlife everywhere! Kayaking anyone? …absolutely, before and after dinner (and breakfast) you can paddle around the protected bays exploring the shoreline for bears, bald eagles, seals, even go ashore for guided hiking and photography…and so much more to do! We have the US Forest Service Special Use Permit for land uses such as hiking, eco tours, photography, and freshwater fishing.
Imagine…cruising the spectacular wilderness waterways of Southeast Alaska on your private charter yacht, with no time schedule to be anywhere, no phones, no TV, no confines of the city, traffic, or familiar concrete under your feet…just a pure Alaskan sea breeze and sunshine on your face, awesome super fresh seafood, and snow capped mountains everywhere you look, and then…FISH ON! Always just minutes from fast fishing action, while at anchor too, and with the comfortable accommodations aboard the Saltery “C”, a world class chef providing superlative meals often from part of the daily catch of fish crab n shrimp, and Captain Rob dedicated to making it all happen for your group, you can have it all in style and comfort…AND, at a most affordable price!
