STRIKE ZONE SPORTFISHING can accommodate Guests from ALL Cruise Lines including Princess Cruises, Holland America, Norwegian Cruise Line, Celebrity, Carnival and Disney.

Our Cruise Ship fishing excursions will make the most of your time in port. By booking directly with us, we will save you money and have more time for fishing and viewing the beauty and wildlife, Southeast Alaska has to offer. We book only private trips, you will not be put into a group and will have the boat to yourself. Our half day trip is a full 4 hours of fishing for $150.00 per person. You can compare this to the on-board Alaska Cruise Ship price of over $209 per person for the same 4 hour trip run on a tight schedule.

See Our Rates Page for details and to take advantage of our In Season Specials!

If you would like a few more hours on the water, we recommend our 6 hour Salmon trip at $175.00 per person, this allows you even more time to get into the fish and to see more of Alaska’s wildlife. On either one of our action filled fishing adventures, it is possible to see humpback whales, killer whales, porpoise, sea lions, seals, and more eagles than you can photograph.


Ground Transportation

Strike Zone Sportfishing Will Pick You Up! We understand that you are on vacation, so we have eliminated the stress of having to call and wait for a taxi. Our shuttle driver will pick your party up right on the dock and will bring you to Knudson Cove Marina, (We will send you instructions for pick up in your confirmation email.) You will enjoy the scenic 15 minute ride north of the City of Ketchikan along the Tongass Narrows. Your driver is a knowledgeable local and usually offers some insight into Ketchikan’s colorful history.



Fishing License & King Tag

You can purchase your Alaska fishing license and King Salmon stamp on board as we head out to the fishing grounds. Knudson Cove is 5-10 minutes from some of the best salmon and halibut fishing in Southeast Alaska. This is not a canned tour, we will NOT be fishing right next to your cruise ship in downtown Ketchikan. Anyone the age of 16+ is required to purchase a fishing license – $25 per license (1 day license). King Tag’s are $15 each person.

Included In Your Trip

We supply all fishing gear, bait, and tackle. We use only top of the line equipment and our boats have the latest electronics gear designed to help find the fish.

We serve our Guests a tasty snack of locally smoked salmon and crackers. We also have complimentary coffee, cookies, sodas & bottled water throughout your trip.

Clean, dry Grunden Rain Gear is provided for use for your comfort. We have sizes Adult Small-2XL available.

Complimentary Strike Zone Sportfishing POSTCARD for you to send to your family back home while you are fishing! We will mail it out for you as well. This is our way of saying Thank You for fishing with us.



Processing Of Your Catch

Processing of your catch is available dockside from Gateway Smoke House. Your catch will be iced from the time it is caught until it is filleted, vacuumed packed, frozen and boxed.

It is then shipped to your door on the day you specify. Shipping is standard overnight FedEx, Monday through Thursday. Processing rates run approximately $7.00 – $9.00 per pound finished weight with everything included, to put your catch in your freezer.

For the return trip to the Cruise Ship, your driver will prearrange a time to pick your party up that allows for maximum fishing time and to get you back to your ship in a timely manner.

If you have extra time in Ketchikan, you can talk to your driver about stopping at Totem Bight State Park, Saxman Native Village Totem Park, or any other local attractions.
