About us

Be it maple-glazed salmon served on a bed of rice and locally-harvested sea asparagus, crab-stuffed halibut baked with finely sliced onions and garlic, battered and fried lingcod dipped in a homemade tartar sauce, or a pile of prawns grilled to perfection, you’ll find the locals eager to share the bounty of our oceans.

And, trust us: there is nothing—and we mean nothing—that compares to the taste of fresh-caught fish prepared within just hours of the catch.

Most of us will be quick to tell you there is no meal better than the meal you share with friends and family after a long day out fishing.

We doubt you’ll be surprised that here at Baranof Excursions we’re right in culinary step with any good Southeast Alaskan. With us, your fishing experience doesn’t stop after you’ve reeled in your catch. In our opinion, the ultimate denouement of your Alaskan fishing adventure is in savoring the fruits of your labor in an authentic Alaskan dining experience.

We are experts and find enjoyment in taking your fresh fish, putting you in a unique environment, and opening the way for you to break bread with your friends and family.

Our culinary adventures give you a taste of all we have to offer.

Enjoy a genuine Alaskan tradition as you have your catch prepared for you by our chef on a wilderness beach, at sea, or at a private table at the Alaska Fish House.

Cook Your Catch: Wilderness Dining
Baranof Excursions has a remote campsite on a wilderness beach south of Ketchikan, ready for your arrival with your fresh-caught fish. Pull up with your guide in one of our boats, and step ashore to meet our campsite host. In just a few short minutes, we’ll quickly cook up a fresh bouillabaisse featuring your catch for you to enjoy by the comfort of a crackling beach fire, accompanied by beautiful views of the rainforest and the wild, rocky shoreline of our private beach.


Cook Your Catch: Private Dining At The Alaska Fish House
On arrival back to town, our guides will lay out your fish at our fish cleaning station and help you determine which fish you want to eat and how to prepare it to best meet your culinary desires. Once you’ve made your choice, we’ll run your fresh catch-up to our chefs in the Alaska Fish House. By the time, you’re done taking your raingear off, washing your hands, and getting back into your civilian clothes, we’ll have a private table ready for you in our rustic-style dining room, and an expertly prepared meal on its way. Once you’ve settled at your table, enjoy a cold, Alaskan brewed Denali beer or a glass of wine to accompany your meal, and give yourself the chance to relax into an authentic Southeast Alaskan dining experience. (If you'd like, we encourage you to invite your family members that you left in town, and share in your catch).

*FAQs:
- WHAT IS A SKIFF?
A skiff is an open boat that is propelled by an outboard motor. A skiff is a modern cousin to Vancouver's longboat or the Native Alaskan oceangoing canoe. We operate 20 ft. Raider skiffs equipped with Honda 90 HP outboard motors.

- HOW MANY PASSENGERS CAN EACH BOAT ACCOMMODATE?
We like to ensure that all guests are as comfortable as possible when joining us for their fishing adventure. Therefore, we limit guests to 5 in each skiff, but the average is 4.

- WHAT FISHING AND OUTFITTING GEAR IS PROVIDED?
Yes. Each guest is provided with Helly Hansen waterproof rain pants, raincoat, warm wool hat, wool socks, rubber boots, and gloves. You will be prepared for any weather (and you'll definitely want to have someone take a photo of you dressed in true Alaskan fashion!). We are proud to feature Penn rods on our excursions and a selection of rods that varies depending on the species of fish we are pursuing.

- HOW WILL WE FIND YOUR MARINA WHEN WE ARRIVE?
If you are arriving in Ketchikan by cruise ship we will arrange for your guide to be waiting for you at the pier upon your arrival. Scan the crowd for the guy or gal with the guise of a fisherperson holding a sign with your name on it. Your guide will walk you to our marina. Depending on where your ship is docked the walk is 2-8 minutes. Upon arrival at the marina, your guide will lead you through the outfitting and licensing process. If you are not traveling aboard a cruise ship, you can find us at the end of Main Street at the "Alaska Fish House".

- I HAVE A TENDENCY TO GET SEASICK, WILL THAT BE A PROBLEM?
We have been operating fishing tours for ten years, and we rarely have passengers that have to deal with seasickness, even those who are prone to motion sickness are comfortable on our boats. The boats which we operate have a low center of gravity, eliminating the rolling motion that usually generates a queasy stomach. However, if you do get sick there will be no extra charge.

- CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE A SPECIAL REQUEST? - I'D LIKE TO CREATE A LIFELONG MEMORY
Absolutely! You're fishing excursion with Baranof should be one of the most memorable excursions you do in Alaska, and that means we are there to make it happen. We can arrange for an amazing array of personal details, from a stop at a special beach or island, a search for specific wildlife, or a particular bottle of wine to take with you. If you have a desire, share it with us and we will work to make it happen. When it comes to celebrations and events, we know that attention to small details makes it a perfect day.
