Led by experienced fisherman and sailor, Captain Mike Bonfils, Big Jim’s Charters operates six pack fishing charters and whale watching expeditions on a variety of full and partial day journeys from May until October—he’s been touring and fishing the local waters since 1998.
You’ll enjoy a comfortable cruise, heated cabin with a large private restroom, and powerful diesel engines, guaranteeing a quick arrival. For avid fishing enthusiasts, state-of-the-art Shimano fishing gear is upgraded annually. Four-hour fishing charters will lead you to Kings, Chinook, Coho, Chum, and Pinks while you enjoy the scenery of Southeast Alaska from Captain Mike’s 35’ LUHRS Sportfisher, “Hot Rod.”
Breathtaking three-hour whale watching tours are also available, where you can watch majestic humpback whales, bald eagles, and sea lions. You can also take in the sights of the Mendenhall Glacier and Point Retreat Lighthouse on Admiralty Island. Secure a private charter for a family reunion or bachelor party, or treat a loved one to a world-class fishing party for their birthday; the opportunities are endless.
The captain’s deep knowledge of the best fishing spots in the area will help you find halibut holes and hot spots while a combination of artificial lures and live bait keep the fish coming back for more. Enjoy complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages while you cruise and munch on a light or full lunch on partial or full-day charters. Whatever style of trip you choose, Big Jim’s Charters will leave you enthused for another day on the water.
